What Bert Has To Say About Redding Metro Area

Redding is located along I-5 between the Central Valley and the mountainous region to the north into Oregon. Although the nearby mountain ranges and hilly terrain give a different physical appearance from other Valley towns, Redding shares many of the same concerns of the others – challenged economy, high cost of living and housing, and little to do. But there are some signs of an upswing.
