The Shasta Cascade Region offers great outdoor adventure activities year-round. Spring brings a colorful show of wildflowers throughout the region as well as some of the best river rafting on one of Northern California's wild and scenic rivers. Summer brings out the best of hiking, biking, backpacking, camping, houseboating, swimming, fishing, and much more. Consider the excitement involved with being on the open range searching out wild horses as you sit high in the saddle in the shadow of Lassen Peak.

You don't have to travel to the east coast for some of the most spectacular Fall colors. Imagine meadows with vivid colors that dazzle year after year in response to the crisp, cool, mountain air. Winter brings a white winter wonderland to the Northstate. Winter activities range in intensity from cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice-skating, sledding, snowshoeing, attending dog sled races to making a two day ascent on Mt. Shasta.  These are just some of the exiciting activites that the region offers.  
 
For a relaxing Northern California vacation in the Shasta Cascade Region, visit charming rural towns, take in a relaxing afternoon beside a cascading waterfall, visit museums and cultural exhibits, explore historic sites and lava tubes, or perhaps you just want to find a unique gift at one of the numerous antique stores or shopping malls. You'll find a myriad of attractions that will keep you coming back to vacation in the Shasta Cascade Region!
