What’s your paddle preference? Lazy Sunday trip around the cove in a kayak with your little one? Or stand up paddling through Sacramento River currents under the Sundial Bridge? If you want to be on the water with all your buddies, we have rafts for that, and if it’s not fun unless it’s a little scary, we’re a short drive from the action on the Trinity River. Redding has so many opportunities to get out on the water, there’s no limit to what you can do with the right paddle- including fishing and yoga! Time magazine recently named Redding the ‘unofficial capital of kayaking’ for our ‘weird obsession’ with all things paddle. Hey- it’s not weird if you live minutes from lakes and seconds from the river and the sun shines 300 days each year! Redding is also the launch point for the California 100: a century race that proves the right stretch of river and a strong enough shoulder are the perfect match. Check out the many rafting, kayaking, and SUP retailers and renters in the area, and plan to paddle your way through an unforgettable visit!
