Things to do in Redding, California

Last weekend I had the pleasure of taking a short trip to visit two of my friends who live in Northern California. After spending some time with my Delta Zeta sorority sister, Elizabeth, and checking out downtown Folsom, I headed up to Redding.

It was my first time in that part of the state (which is nothing like Southern California where I'm from), and my hosts graciously exposed me to the mountains and rivers of the Whiskeytown National Recreation Area. Here are a few of the sites that we visited while there:

An old Chinese mining town

The Shasta Dam: the largest overflow dam in the world

The Turtle Bay Sundial Bridge

It was a nice change of pace to get away from the hustle and bustle of the concrete jungle that I live in and explore the wilderness, although my vacation went by far too quickly. If you are ever in the area, I suggest you take advantage of the beautiful scenery that Northern California offers.
