Redding Road trip


Hello, my bucket list friends , This weekend I went on a little road trip a few hours north to Redding but it was more than just a road trip. The bay area has become very expensive and the traffic is awful  . So my parents and I are planing to move in a year or too . We decided to take a look at the Redding area to see if would be a good place to move to. I’m excited to tell you all about it so let’s get going !


Redding Road trip 2018

We left for Redding on saturday but before we could get on our way we had to drop off the cats at their hotel for the weekend . After that it was time to hit the road . After a nice long drive and stop or two along the way ,We made it to Redding . Once we were there we drove around for a while looking at the area that my parents are interested in . While looking around it really hit me that we were really going to be moving and I got upset thinking about leaving all my friends ,family and the amazing jobs that I have . I knew that as an adult I could stay if I wanted to but the cost would be too much to handle . After looking at houses for a while we went to Turtle bay exploration park . I was still in an emotional state but the park and the sundial bridge are beautiful and it helped to take my mind off things  . After being there for a while I felt better and I got some cool  souvenirs . After the park we went to the hotel to drop off our stuff before meeting some of my dad’s friends for dinner . We had an amazing dinner then we went back to the sundial bridge to see it at night ,The bridge was beautiful all lit up in blue but man was it cold outside . After a long day it was time to get some sleep . The next morning we started out by enjoying a great breakfast at the hotel . Then we checked out of the hotel and drove up to the beautiful Shasta Dam . We took a free tour of the dam and I just have to say the views from the dam are breath taking. After the tour it was time to get back on the road to go home . After visiting the Redding area I have to say that I really like it up there it is just going to be hard to leave everything that I know but I have a while until that happens . Overall I had a good time exploring Redding and it was nice to have a weekend away .
