Cozy cabins, lake, scenery -- Shasta has it allIf you've driven along Interstate 5 as it twists and turns through the Shasta Lake area, you probably have been at least tempted to go back and explore this gorgeous, forested recreation mecca just north of Redding. Fall may be one of the best times of the year to finally give into that temptation.
While not quite as brilliant as the fall colors you'll find near Lake Tahoe and other areas of the Sierra Nevada, the sights will nevertheless be as spectacular as the weather is comfortable during what is usually an extended period of warm daytime temperatures. It's that time of the year when the summertime crowds have left but the winter rains have not yet arrived.
Shasta Lake was created by the second largest dam in the United States and has 365 miles of shoreline. Especially in summer, it's a boater's paradise – and is considered the houseboat capital of California. But during off-season, Shasta Lake offers visitors a different look and experience. The water level is down from its springtime peak and, to some extent, boating gives way in the off-season to sightseeing and hiking nearby trails – all the easier now that the hottest summer temperatures have abated.
