Welcome to Redding, Ca - Your Outdoor Adventure Headquarters

With mountains all around, miles of hiking and biking trails, a river running through it, and national parks nearby, Redding is an outdoor paradise for young and old alike. Cradled by Mount Shasta and Mount Lassen, Redding has 300+ sunny days per year. It's a great place to escape the chill of spring and the gray days of winter, too! Want a list of possibilities? TIME magazine called Redding the Unofficial Capital of Kayaking for its "weird obsession" with all things paddling. With temperate weather, nearby lakes, and that river in the middle of town, it would be "weird" to not get out and enjoy it all!

Redding is also home to the famous Sundial Bridge, world-class fishing, and 200 miles of hiking and biking trails for all abilities. Head out on a day-trip to see the bubbling mud pots and boiling lakes in Lassen Volcanic National Park, or get refreshed by the waterfall at McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park. This 129-foot gusher is considered one of the most beautiful in the state. Also, be sure to find out what fun events are happening— like the Redding Marathon, Kool April Nites, Redding Rodeo, and the Salmon Festival (Forbes ranks Redding as the only West Coast city among the Top 10 fishing destinations in North America). Redding is a perfect vacation, destination for "Any Adventure, Any Day!"
