  • Shasta Lake

  • Turtle Bay Park & The Sundial Bridge

  • The Bluffs

  • Lassen Volcanic National Park

  • Sacramento River Trail

  • Water Works Park

Freshman, Ryan Beaty says “My favorite place to go to in Redding is Shasta Lake because you can catch a bunch of fish there and you have a chance to catch a big one.”


Another student Senior, Connor Rowe says “My favorite place to go is Heart Lake over by Mount Shasta. It has a nice place to hike too that overlooks the entire lake. The lake itself is super pretty.”


Are you bored on the weekends? Do you want to do something fun but don’t want to spend money or drive too far? Take a break from homework and go check out some of these spots.
