American Restaurant

“Absolutely stunning view! If you're interested in a great place to unwind and relax, look no further than View 202. They have a massive patio that sits right over the Sacramento River. My recommendation is to go on a Thursday. They offer half-off appetizers all day and night. Also, make sure to plan a trip later in the day as you will not want to miss the most gorgeous sunset you'll ever see! ”

“The Sundial Bridge at Turtle Bay is one of the most peaceful places to go in Redding. You have nature at it's finest with beautiful scenery, families taking a stroll and people-watching at its best of those out and about in the community :) If you're interested in getting fresh air and sunshine, then you won't want to miss the chance to take a walk around the Sacramento River trails and see this gorgeous place! ”
