Redding, CA is a small city in Northern California of 89,861 people as of the 2010 Census and it’s not the easiest city to travel to, especially if you’re from out of the country. I’ve compiled the easiest ways to get to Redding here.
There is a small regional airport here called the Redding Municipal Airport (RDD) and it has 2 direct flights from San Francisco (SFO) and Los Angeles (LAX) on United. These flights will be the most convenient if you’re looking to fly directly into Redding but can get a little expensive. Once you’re here you can catch an Uber or a Lyft from the airport fairly easily. Or you can borrow my car on Turo.
Fly and Drive
A possibly cheaper alternative is to fly into Sacramento (SMF) or San Francisco (SFO) and book a rental car or catch a ride with a friend to Redding. Sacramento is only 2.5 hours away and San Francisco is a little bit longer of a drive around 4.5 hours away. This will allow you to also have transportation while you’re here in Redding.
Road Trip It
The cheapest option could be to just road trip it all the way here! And it could make for an epic adventure. All it takes is a car, some gas, good music and great friends. But depending on where you live, it might take a good chunk of time so this might not be a viable option for most people unless you live within 10 hours of Redding.
