The city of Redding in the heart of UpStateCA has more than a few scenic drives to offer. Trying to choose the ones you should go on; however, could last for well over a week, so we’d thought we’d give you hand. The folks at CarRentals.com know where you should go and how you should get there.

By Dan Shepler | 05/23/2018 Biking, Fun and Free, Great Outdoors, Things to See and Do, Trails
Redding has been getting a lot of attention in the last few years as a mountain biking destination, being called the "Trails capital of California." Its intricate trail system opens up a lot of options that can be accessed right from town. There are more than 250 miles of trails for people of all ages and skill levels making it a great option for a family experience. (Click here to see a map of the Trailheads)After hearing how good the biking was I wanted to get out and experience it for myself. I linked up with Jasper, owner of the...  Read More
THE PERFECT PAIRING: TOTS & CRAFT BEER AT WOODY'S BREWING COMPANY
By Dan Shepler | 05/16/2018 Cultural District, Downtown, Food and Drink, Local Breweries, Nightlife
Tucked away near the heart of downtown Redding, Woody’s Brewing Company is a flavorful and refreshing experience. This family-owned-and-operated establishment produces some of the tastiest pairings of food and beer found in Northern California. They offer a quite extensive beer list, and their food menu is a delicious spin what you would expect to find at a pub. Tater tots, calamari, wings, fish and chips, and burgers are just a few of their options.I’ve heard a lot of locals talking about Woody’s so one day I decided to head in for a mid-week lunch to experience it for myself.

Redding boasts some of the most premier outdoor opportunities of any city that I have ever been to. There is so much to do and see in every direction. One of my favorite day trips in the area is a waterfall tour visiting Lion Slide Falls (aka Hatchet Creek), Burney Falls, and the three McCloud River Falls (Middle pictured above). It makes for a fun day with friends or family and takes you through some of the most iconic landscapes and vistas in UpState California and lets you return back to your hotel to rest up for another day of...  Read More
CRAFT BEER & FOOD TRUCK FRIDAY'S AT WILDCARD BREWING CO.'S TIED HOUSE
By Dan Shepler | 04/27/2018 Downtown, Food and Drink, Local Breweries
Redding’s food and drink scene is on the rise. There are new places popping up all over town and each bringing its own unique experience. One of my personal favorites is Wildcard Brewing Co. It's a relatively new brewery so everything is clean and shiny, and their tasty beers are always refreshing. The majority of the brews are limited edition batches so almost every time you go there is something new and fun to try. Last year, Wildcard put out over 50 unique beers, which they serve at their two locations: the Tied House, which is the downtown location, and...  Read More

THE NEW MOSAIC RESTAURANT LEAVES A LASTING IMPRESSION
By Dan Shepler | 03/13/2018 Food and Drink, Italian/Pizza, Redding Originals
The Mosaic Restaurant, the new hot spot in Redding, offers California style cuisine with an upbeat and lively atmosphere. I headed in for dinner one evening around 5:00 p.m. It looked pretty busy and there was a short wait for a table. Not a problem, spots were available at the bar to get a drink in the meantime. The bartender recommended the Sac Smash, a delicious spin on a margarita made with ginger, agave, lemon juice, and basil. She mixed one up to perfection and I sipped on while looking over the menu. The charcuterie board looks good.Table ready. Within moments...  Read More
