I am in the middle of a job search and we are casting a very wide net. We're considering San Diego, Redding, and several other places that are out of state. It looks like I might be getting an offer from Redding, so we have some big decisions ahead of us.<br><br>
So tell me about it. What do you like about Redding? What don't you like? How is the community for families? Are there any local AP mom's groups?<br><br>
Thanks!!

Redding gets hot, but it's a dry heat. There is a great health food store, and a Trader Joe's. There's also a Costco there. It still has a country-like vibe, with big city amenities. Housing is very affordable, people are still nice and friendly. It has tons of outdoorsy stuff to do, with Shasta Lake and Mount Lassen within a short distance.<br><br>
What else are you looking for? It's an easy 3 hour drive from SF, as long as you don't go during commute hours from/to Sac or Tahoe.

Thanks so much for your reply!<br><br>
We're trying to decide whether to stay in So. California, move to Redding, or move even farther north to Oregon.<br><br>
I've read lots of negative stuff about Redding- the heat issue has come up several times, and I've read about how it's a "*******" town (but I live in a part of So. Cal. that's ******* central, so that doesn't bother me). I also read that it's part of the "State of Jefferson" and is very conservative- I'd like to know if it's really as bad as people say. My husband will be a SAHD and it would be great if we could find a network of SAHD's for him. DS will also need to be enrolled in a Montessori school and I haven't found any reviews of the Montessori school.<br><br>
Thanks again.

Yes, Redding is still very conservative. However, with that said, it's changing. Many people from the bay area, santa cruz, and other liberal areas are moving up there.<br>
California conservative is not as bad as say, midwest conservative.<br><br>
I don't know anything about schools, since we homeschool, but they seem nice from the outside. lol
