With a population of 10,000, the City of Shasta Lake is the closest settlement to popular tourist destinations of Lake Shasta and the Shasta Dam. This is the epicenter of water-based recreational activities in the Redding area!
The uncrowded, unspoiled wide open spaces of the Whiskeytown-Shasta-Trinity National Recreation Area (the “Shasta Unit” in U.S. Forest Service parlance) is easily accessible (without being completely isolated, if you wish).
Redding or Lake Shasta can be used as your personal “base of operations” to any activity and amenity you would like or need. Recreate in a wilderness during the day; enjoy dinner and theater at night. Next day, visit a winery in the morning; laze on a houseboat in the afternoon and into the evening. A sampling:
Cabins & Cottages, Resorts, Hotels and Motels, Bed & Breakfasts, Guest Ranches, RV parks, Recreational Equipment Rental, RV Motor home Rental, Camping (via reservations), Trails, Wilderness, Ranger-led Nature Walk, Wildlife, Vacation Rentals, Picnic and Day Use Areas, Marinas, Boat and Houseboat Rentals, Boat Ramp (annual boating passes available), Wake board & Water ski, Fishing, Off-road Areas and ATV Rentals, Restaurants, Coffee Shops, Grocery Delivery, Shasta Caverns tours (via a 56-foot catamaran, then via a bus ride up the hill to the cavern entrance!), Shasta Dam tours (free), Shasta Damboree springtime festival, 4th of July Fireworks, General Entertainment (movies, etc.), Casinos, Golf, Shopping, Gift Shops …and much, much more!
Living in the Lake Shasta area is relatively cheap, and provides year-round access to recreational activities (while most of the rest of country is either cold, under snow or expensive). Many retirees find this little slice of heaven an absolute Godsend to all they are looking for —especially in light of budget realities, which allow them to no only retire very comfortably, but also with enough funds left over to visit and travel: The American Dream!
