Redding, home of the world famous Sundial Bridge, sits at the base of the mountains in far northern California in the center of the state's Shasta Cascade region. Considered the hub of the north state, Redding offers convenient shopping, quality restaurants, and abundant lodging choices, making it the perfect base camp for exploring the region's natural attractions.
The Sacramento River runs cold and swift through the center of Redding, creating a rich landscape bursting with a variety of fun things to see and do both in and around Redding, including world class fishing right in the heart of the city, nature tourism, shopping, sports activities, water adventures, culture and heritage opportunities, and quality attractions.
Redding experiences over 200 days of sunshine a year but enjoys all four seasons--so there is always something to do. The natural surroundings offer a relaxed lifestyle where casual dress is always in season.
Redding is positioned 40.57 degrees north of the equator and 122.36 degrees west of the prime meridian with an elevation of 557 feet above sea level.
