Shasta County California
California's largest city north of Sacramento is Redding, it's a recreational hub boasting everything from world-class fishing on the renowned Sacramento River to the educational Turtle Bay Exploration Park, where the internationally-renowned Sundial Bridge stretches over the Sacramento River as part of Redding's 36-mile network of trails. Shasta Lake, the largest lake in California, is one of the major outdoor attractions in California and the western United States, and holds the title of "Houseboat Capitol of the World". The lake was formed by Shasta Dam, the tallest center overflow dam in the world. Lake Shasta Caverns, dated at least 200 million years, are made entirely of limestone and feature every type of possible formation, including stalactites, stalagmites, soda straws, columns and flowstone. Castle Crags State Park is located in the forest-covered mountains just north of the Sacramento Valley off I-5 near Dunsmuir. The park features soaring spires of ancient granite and includes about two miles of the cool, quick-running upper Sacramento River, surrounded by primitive back country. Elevations range from 2,000 feet along the river to more than 6,000 feet at the top of the Crags.

Redding is the sunniest city in all of California. If that's not reason enough, consider a wide range of outdoor activities that will keep you engaged from sunrise to well after sunset. With a population of about 93,000, Redding offers an abundance of shopping, dining, lodging, arts, entertainment, and employment opportunities for the region.
