Review of Redding, California


Don't move here!
Star Rating - 3/16/2021
I retired to Redding 6 years ago and I can truthfully say that I made a huge mistake. If you are looking to move to an area that has; thriving arts scene, gourmet dining, cultural diversity, an enlightened forward thinking community, politicians that are a credit to their community, DO NOT move to Redding. Redding is an ultra-conservative community with virtually zero cultural diversity. The city of Redding is filled with boarded up businesses, homeless everywhere, open drug dealing, one of the highest rates of car theft in Calif. Redding has 1 bookstore....Barnes & Nobel, 1 wine shop...BevMo, no art galleries downtown & very little thriving retail. A city of 100,000 people and 1 bookstore should tell you volumes about the intelec of this community. The Congressman that represents this area voted to overturn our Presidental election, is a science denier, supports QAnon insanity & has refuse repeatedly to denounce White Supremacy. Redding is in the grip of Bethel Church....an organization that promotes gay conversion with prayer and resurecting the dead. Bethel has permeated our city & county gov't. They are powerful and a curse on this part of Calif. Our local , City& County, politicians continually talk about " protecting our Second Amendment Rights.....while refusing to wear masks and ignoring the multitude of problems in our community. This is Trump country & damn proud of it! Disgusting!

You obviously did not do much research prior to retiring there. None of these issues are hidden and many are not unique to Redding
