START YOUR DAY
An early morning walk on the Sacramento River National Recreation Trail across the Santiago Calatrava designed Sundial Bridge is a peaceful way to start the day. Either stroll along the trail or through the tranquil McConnell Arboretum and Botanical Gardens located on the north end of the bridge.
The scooters are a fun way to travel all over to do some sightseeing. You might want to take them back to the River Trail for a longer look at why it is considered a national recreational trail – it rarely leaves the view of the river. End your travels with a facial at Amarte’ Salon in downtown, you’ll certainly be surprised. If you’ve never had one, it is a delectable experience. That should leave you a little time to freshen-up before your evening.
I like to start all of this off fairly early so I can plan to end the evening at the Redding Civic Auditorium, Cascade Theatre or Axiom Theatre for productions which may be playing. If I can’t find a show I like at one of those, I head over to Vintage Public House across from the Cascade Theatre for dessert, a nice cocktail and possibly live music. Dessert twice in one day is my idea of a perfect Day!
