RED BLUFF... The River Runs Through It
If Northern Sacramento Valley were a bottle, Red Bluff's the water — situated at the center of this lush, orchard-laced county. Famous for its historic old town situated on the Sacramento River since the late 1800s, Red Bluff still shows its charms as an early mining town, with historic buildings and relaxed ambiance.
Red Bluff's quaint main street encompasses only a few blocks, but there's a definite buzz about it. Browse through its bookshops, antique stores, historic landmarks and restaurants. Then, spend time relaxing on a bluff overlooking the Sacramento River. You can even book your visit to coincide with the Red Bluff Rodeo or the Red Bluff Bull & Gelding Sale. From Durango, you can pedal your bike into town, or just hoof it — it's only a short stroll.
And, of course, the whole, wonderful Northern Sacramento Valley is at your fingertips. Visit Redding or the cool college town of Chico, both just 30-40 minutes away. Gracious mountains (Mt. Shasta & Mt. Lassen) and wonderful mountain lakes surround this majestic part of Northern California. For the angler, the Lower Sacramento River between Red Bluff and Lake Shasta is considered one of the finest wild rainbow trout fisheries on the west coast, flowing right through the city of Red Bluff. Great fishing or just plain exploring.
Fishing, running waters, a happening town... Red Bluff's a perfect place to relax and unwind.
