Well, we can't always go 100% by the numbers when it comes to comparing crime rates of cities (especially those with different population numbers).

But, let's compare Redding to my location...

Redding - 449.6
Indio - 253.0

So, nearly twice as high as that of Indio.

Hello friends. My husband and I currently live in Santa Cruz, CA. While we love this beautiful little beach town, it is just too damn expensive. We have decided to move to Redding area (maybe up in Lewiston or Shasta??) to be able to buy a home and live more simply, avoid the traffic and all the people. Does that sound crazy to some? Probably. I will find out if I can hack it in Redding, CA and will hopefully be escaping the heat by heading to the mountains, rivers and lakes as much as possible. I hope other young(er), hopeful, positive, outdoor-oriented people will join the "move"ment to more affordable pastures. Wish us luck!

HOT, HOT, HOT 6 months/year. Triple-digit temps well into October. Have you considered Humboldt, where it's cooler, and there's a plentiful water supply? No A/C needed in most parts of Humboldt. It's probably a little pricier than Shasta/Redding, but there are communities that are lower-priced than others. Take a look at Fortuna.

Some people like the heat. It is great for water based activities.

Well, there's heat, and then there's HEAT!

And don't forget; HEAT! means less water over time.

The OP is living in Santa Cruz currently, where she loves the weather. Redding might be too much of a shock for her.

OP: visit in August/Sept. before you decide.

We spent a few days in Redding, & one day, kayaking on Whiskeytown lake. It didn't seem any hotter than other parts of NorCal, which are also often in triple digits much of the year.


According to google, Redding is the 3rd hottest city in California. Not even first. Fresno & Bakersfield have it hotter.

lol. Cute. Very cute. But again, I suggest: bearing in mind, that the OP is currently living in Santa Cruz, which has natural air conditioning from the ocean.

But hopefully, the OP will return to the thread, to give us her feedback on the comments so far.

I agree that the weather is vastly different between the two places. But people adjust. It depends on what they want.
