Touted as the second sunniest city in America, outdone only by Yuma, AZ, Redding is a town that's busy, friendly, and hot! Just two hours north of Sacramento, Redding has long been considered just a small inland California town; however, in recent years, its reputation has been transformed. As you climb off your Sacramento flight or disembark at the Redding Municipal Airport, be sure to book car rentals in Redding, CA, to ensure that you get from place to place quickly and easily, and explore this beautiful area.
Spending time in Sunshine City
Just five miles from the Redding airport or a two-hour drive from Sacramento, downtown is easily reached by rental cars in Redding, CA. During your visit, be sure to take some time to visit the Sundial Bridge, which has been a popular tourist attraction since it opened back in 2004. This bridge crosses the Sacramento River and functions as an authentic, working sundial. It is covered with more than 1.3 million pieces of Spanish tile, and offers breathtaking views of the Trinity Mountains on the west and the Cascade Mountains on the north.
Drive east in your Redding car rental to get an unforgettable view of Whiskeytown Lake, where you can see magnificent wildlife and maybe get in some swimming or fishing. Later at night, you can head downtown to one of the restaurants or brewpubs to catch some local music and sample micro-brews from around the Northern California area.
