Let the fireworks fly – it’s the Fourth of July.

Would you like to cool off, relax and enjoy some of the North State’s most treasured national resources at the same time? Try your hand at fly fishing. If you’re brand new, consider enlisting a guide, who might give up a secret or two if you ask nicely. Or explore our beautiful Sacramento River by kayak, canoe or stand-up paddleboard (and meet some fascinating people) during Paddle California, a 100-mile trip from Redding to Chico.

Grab an iced coffee at Heritage Roasting Company in Shasta Lake and strike up a conversation with Stuart and Sara Sutherland, the proprietors who have poured their hearts into building an inspirational community space. Or if you’re in Chico, the T Bar & Fusion Café is a comfy, eclectic spot to enjoy a spot of tea or an imaginative lunchtime treat.

When the mercury skyrockets, one point of refuge is a cool theater. Shasta College’s Theater Department is working hard right this minute to fine-tune their production of Mel Brooks’ “The Producers,” which opens July 7 for a three-week run. We’ll tell you more about the folks behind the scenes.

Meanwhile, we’ll help you find the perfect-fitting swimsuit (yes, there is such a thing!) so you can bask poolside with the utmost confidence. Don’t forget your sunscreen.

Have you joined us for Movies in the Park yet? We’ll be in Anderson River Park during the month of July, so come on down and beat the heat while enjoying a film on our inflatable outdoor screen.

Happy birthday, America, and enjoy!
