Redding, California, is a charming city with a deep connection to the Sacramento River. Redding vacation packages will lead you to scenic natural areas along the water, along with plenty of beautiful architecture and remarkable nightlife.
Once you've checked into one of the nearby hotels in Redding, start your trip at the nearby Sundial Bridge at Turtle Bay. This unusual bridge opened in 2004, and bills itself as the largest sundial in the world. The unique pointed shape at one end of the bridge is the gnomon, or hand, of the sundial, and as the sun moves through the sky, the gnomon's shadow points to successive times along the sundial. Pack a lunch and trace the shadow across the river!
Vacations in Redding aren't complete without a visit to the 300-acre Turtle Bay Exploration Park. The attached Turtle Bay Museum features an underwater viewing port for the Sacramento River's fish, as well as plenty of local art that neatly typifies the Redding region and the vital importance of the river in the city's history. The museum's wooden construction is designed to be ecologically sustainable and relatively low-impact on the local flora and fauna.
Vacation packages in Redding are an invitation to the area's annual events. For instance, the Saturday farmer's market is a showcase of what local farmers and vendors grow in the region, and allows both locals and visitors a chance to experience the area's best organically-grown foods. Adults shouldn't forget about the annual Redding Beer and Wine Festival in autumn, which showcases Redding's best microbreweries, as well as the grapes that this unique region is famed for.
