I have been living in Redding for two and half years now and I love it. I love Redding for its beautiful landscape, Its diversity and the community. I love that it is a very small town, chances of getting traffic are very low. It is a great place to live a live a healthy lifestyle. There are many parks, river trails, mountains to hike and beautiful lakes. This city has changed my life and the way I see people. I am more open to living my life as a minimalist. I love Redding!

What I enjoy most about Redding is the sense of community I've felt opposed to living in southern California. Since living here, I've always notice events put on for the public by various local volunteer groups that even welcome membership and ways to help volunteer. Being a part of the community feels great!
Redding is an average town. In the summer there seems to be quit a few events that go on, which are family oriented so that's nice. There's not a whole lot to do. We have the movies, mall, waterslides, bar, and a casino. Don't forget the rivertrail, which is absolutely beautiful but you better being a walking buddy!
