Probably the safest place outside of the Redding city limits would be Palo Cedro. It's not a long commute and is pretty rural. The old town of Shasta would be another good bet.

I would suggest that you stay away from the Shasta Lake City ( used to be called Central Valley ) area and Anderson. Cottonwood isn't, for the most part, a bad area either. Though both areas are more conservative compared to Palo Cedro and especially Old Shasta.

The employment picture is apparently tightning. Pre this morning's paper the UI rate in Shasta County went up another point, to 13%. Will definitely affect your customers, if not you.

Thanks! I will check out Palo Cedro and Shingletown tomorrow. I am in Redding for three days right now checking things out and I have to admit, it is worse than I expected it to be. I might have been in a bad part of town but I saw so many cracked out people it was frightening. Before I could even get out of my vehicle for the first time a homeless person was knocking against my window. I drove to Whiskeytown Lake hoping things would get better out towards the hills but I was sharing the road with suped up truckloads of rednecks. I even had a car painted entirely in camouflage riding my butt for a few miles. And did I hear the DJ on the radio correctly when he said prostitution was legal? I went to dinner at Kobe Japanese restaurant and the waitress said I was in a bad part of town. I'm REALLY hoping to find somewhere decent nearby tomorrow. One thing is for sure, Redding is out.

I can't believe I'm moving here...

so freaky! And that is what they look like wandering around all over this town! I drove out to Palo Cedro and Shingletown today. Palo Cedro is better than Redding. There may be rednecks crawling all over it but at least you can hide from them tucked away on a back road out there. Shingletown was too far out there. I stopped into the pizza joint/bar and immediately got the heebie jeebies and left. This is going to be quite the experience.

You might want to check out the Old Shasta area. It's west of Redding on the way to Eureka and a little more green, tree wise, as well as being more liberal than Palo Cedro.

Around Redding?

You may have to head all the way to Humboldt County or Butte County (Chico is a liberal college town).

Ok, thanks. Is that the one you pass on the way to Whiskeytown Lake? I might have driven through it already if so. It's my last day today so wish me luck! Electric- I wish I could live in Humboldt!

I just read that someone is opening an animal sanctuary/rescue operation in Palo Cedro so there must be some good people out there.

Liberal/conservative areas are located in the 6 inches between one's ears. One ends up with friends from all points of view if one is friendly enough.
