This is about the only thing to see in Redding and it's quite an interesting design. But it's just a bridge.....

I was able to walk across this bridge on the day it opened and I often take a walk on the river trail that leads to the Sundial Bridge. It is an amazing piece of architecture and beautiful to behold. The only negative is the lack of decent food at the little store. Mostly a gift store with an unimpressive... More

Don't miss this if you are in town. It has a beautiful view and we watched all the fisherman down below in the river.

A must see if you are visiting. The sundial actually is only accurate twice a year! Goid place for a wedding, or just a quiet walk.

This is a very different looking bridge. You can only walk on this bridge. You walk on glass that is lite up at night. The bridge is close to Turtle Bay which is also a fun thing to do but you have to pay for Turtle Bay.

Unique and especially nice at night. Bridge is pedestrian and is above the Sacramento River. There is a museum adjacent to the bridge.
