FREE & Nearly Free Summer Activities in Redding 2017

Free & Nearly Free Summer Activities in Northern California! Update for Summer 2017  www.wayupnorthincali.blogspot.com

UPDATED for Summer 2017 with new activities & Google Calendar!

My children would love to screen hop all day long during the summer.  You know how it goes.  They hop from the TV, to the tablet, and then to the computer. But that leads to cranky children and an even crankier mom.  How do we keep them busy without it breaking the bank? Well...I did a little digging. Look at some of the great activities I found!

Let's try to avoid too much of this.
(But hey...if you're going to play video games, you might as well do it in style.)

  1. Hi Whitney! When it's really hot outside, a DAM tour is really cool. Guided tours of Shasta Dam are FREE and take about an hour. Plan to be at the Visitors Center 1/2 hour before the scheduled time to get your tickets and then walk out on the dam to the tour elevators. The Guide will take you down inside the dam to the hydroelectric plant and explain how this huge structure was built. The park that surrounds the dam has beautiful green grass and picnic tables under the shade of the trees. If you come in the afternoon or evening you'll be able to feed the deer! Here's a link for more information and tour times http://www.shastalake.com/shastadam/
