Redding was recently ranked as the 29th Most Dynamic Metropolitan Area in the United States in a study published by the Walton Family Foundation and Heartland Forward,  cited as one of the 'Coolest Towns in America' by the Matador Network, listed as TIME Magazine's US Capital of Kayaking and one of Forbes' Top 10 Trout-Fishing Towns in North America - the only city in the West to earn the honor. Redding shines as a beacon of natural beauty, rich history and innovative growth.

Redding is labeled the sunniest city in California, and the second sunniest city in the United States by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. This allows for residents and visitors to take advantage of the pristine rivers and lakes and dynamic landscapes that Redding provides, so much so that the Los Angeles Times lists Redding as one of the 10 Best Places to Picnic in the West and National Public Radio (NPR) features Redding as an "Outdoor Paradise!"
