REDDING: UNOFFICIAL CAPITAL OF KAYAKING ACCORDING TO TIME MAGAZINE
By Kallie | 09/28/2017 Great Outdoors, Kayaking, Paddling, Stand Up Paddle Boarding
TIME calls Redding "weird" and says its citizens are so "obsessed" with kayaking that we're the unofficial capital of the paddle sport. If kayaking is weird, we don't want to be normal! Are Hawaiians weird for surfing so much? Are Coloradans weird for snow skiing? Are Parisians weird for eating croissants and baguettes? Nope. When you have the best resources - in Redding's case, beautiful, accessible lakes, a river that runs right through town, and 300+ sunny days per year - you're only weird if you don't use them!According to TIME, "Americans have always had strange obsessions, and how we interact...  Read More

LAKE SHASTA: IT'S NOT WHAT YOU THINK
By Admin User | 05/22/2014
Have you heard? California is in the midst of a drought!! Drying out, shriveling up, and blowing away. Ocean front casinos in Las Vegas before you know it! There are cacti where our lakes were, tumbleweeds rolling down the riverbeds, and the salmon all grew legs and walked away to Oregon. Not even the Sundial Bridge can tell time any more- it's just. too. thirsty. We're joking of course. Yes, there's a drought, but there's a difference between low water levels and a hole in the ground! Here are some facts to help you cut through the rumors and plan...  Read More
CELEBRATE 10
By | 05/22/2014
 When you're approaching the ten year anniversary of a world-renowned sculpture/bridge/marvel, you don't string a few lights, pour some wine, and call it a commemoration. You go BIG. You dangle aerialist dancers from the gnomon. You send the whole town downriver on rafts. You have flash mobs. You pack as many craft breweries as possible onto the patio. You have nightly concerts. You give out sidewalk chalk to anyone with a hand. You pull every photo, sketch, and construction document out of storage to tell the whole story. You take an already-legendary fireworks show and turn it up to 11. Don't wait to make your plans to attend Celebrate...  Read More
