Redding, California is the county seat of Shasta County in upstate California. Located on the Sacramento River and on Interstate 5 south of Shasta Lake, Redding is the largest city north of Sacramento, as well as the northernmost designated metropolitan area in California with over 89,000 people.
Both Redding and its neighbor to the south, Red Bluff, are popular with tourists who use the cities as bases to explore Lassen Volcanic National Park, Lake Shasta, and other natural attractions.
The city grew in the 1950s with the expansion of the lumber industry, the building of Whiskeytown and Keswick Dams, and the completion of Interstate 5 in the late 1960s.
