Top Hot Spots in Downtown Redding, California

Surrounded by mountains, hiking and biking trails, and national parks, and born out of the historic Gold Rush era, Redding is the epicenter of an outdoor paradise for young and old alike. This slice of paradise set at the northern end of the Sacramento River Valley also has a vibrant and friendly downtown center.

“Redding, the hub city of Shasta Cascade, is centrally located in the heart of Northern California’s great outdoors, but what many visitors find surprising is our exciting downtown,” explains Kallie Markle, Communications Coordinator at Visit Redding. “Redding is the largest California city north of Sacramento, so visitors enjoy a food scene featuring new and historic restaurants, wine bars, breweries, exceptional entertainment venues, cozy hotels and unique shops.”

Downtown Hot Spots for Dining and Imbibing
In Redding, visitors are invited to dine like they mean it. Jack’s, a local hot spot for over 75 years, takes you back in time to enjoy a delicious meal of classic big steaks and perfect martinis. If you are looking for something more on trend, The Dip is one of the newest kids on the downtown Redding blog. Craft cocktails and an impressive craft beer bar are paired with live music, trivia, BINGO, and other fun nightly events. The Squire Room, a reinvention of a Redding classic, is a tasteful throwback to the 1960s, complete with red velvet and JFK photos on the walls. Visitors will enjoy tons of personality, without all the kitsch, and of course: great drinks. Wildcard Brewing Co.’s Tied House is a favorite craft brewery in downtown Redding. It’s BYOM – “bring your own meal” – and the kids can play board games while you enjoy a flight of beer, in the airy, laid back space.

Redding, California – Halfway Between Seattle and Los Angeles

What makes a great overnite stop? Consider this… you’ve traveled all day, you’re tired, hungry, the kids are wired… you get the picture. What you really need right about then is that perfect overnite stop… an exit where you feel safe and comfortable… an exit with a good mix of accommodations and a variety of eating places… not just fast food. And, maybe a little shopping later before you get back to the motel. The next morning you can gas up nearby and head out. Everything you need conveniently located right off the exit! That’s a great overnite stop!

Seattle to Los Angeles via Interstate 5 is approximately 1,135 miles, or just under 17 hours of driving. That’s a substantial roadtrip. Not all of us can do that kind of mileage non-stop. Making the trip in two days gets you there comfortably and with much more energy to savor the destination.

Eight and a half hours on the road each day is still an effort, but if you pace yourself, get out and stretch your legs every few hours and have a comfortable place to stay at night, getting there can be just as much fun as your destination. Redding, California is halfway between Seattle and Los Angeles and it’s our recommended overnight stop…
