Red Bluff seems beautiful to the outsider. However, I have found through horrible experiences, inside this town there is something very different than appears. The people, the businesses, and law enforcement are all corrupt. The old timers that run things in Red Bluff have never been taught the basic things we all learned in kindergarten, as far as I can tell. As a whole, with few exceptions the people of the town lie, cheat, and steal, they don’t look both ways ever, and they are so afraid of change and growth they simply do not accept it. Being different is I unacceptable. Based on my experiences in Red Bluff and the people who inhabit it, my rating for this town is a generous two stars .
This is just one girls all inclusive, bitter, and opinionated view of a very racist, judgemental, and closed minded place called red bluff.

Red Bluff can be a great town to grow up in. There are many opportunities available for children to get out and have fun, and there are many opportunities for culture to flourish. From the Farmer's Market where one can purchase a variety of fresh fruits and veggies to the historic State Theatre where one can watch an array of shows, this town is a very special place. However, since I've been here I have seen the homeless population skyrocket and turn into a larger issue than when I first lived here. It can feel dangerous to walk around downtown alone due to this issue, and there doesn't seem to be an end to the growth that we are witnessing in this field.
Red is a great city to live in. It’s small, friendly, and beautiful. Nicknamed “The Victorian City on the River,” Red Bluff has everything a person could ask for. There are farmer’s markets, local businesses, community events and programs. I live on a great street in a nice area of town where everyone waves. I feel so lucky to live in such a beautiful area.
