Venue Information and Lodging
The 2020 Annual Meeting will be held in Redding, CA at two adjacent hotels on Hilltop Drive — The Holiday Inn and the Red Lion Inn which lie 450 feet away from each other. Redding is 3 hours north of San Francisco and 2 hours north of Sacramento in the heart of northern California on Interstate 5 which runs right through town.
Redding is centrally located in the beautiful Shasta-Cascade region at the top of the Sacramento Valley in far northern California. Surrounded on three sides by millions of acres of federal and state lands, Redding is a short drive to some of California’s most beautiful natural attractions, including the Whiskeytown National Recreation Area, Lassen Volcanic National Park, McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park, spectacular Mt. Shasta, and the pristine Trinity Alps. The region boasts miles of backcountry roads and scenic highways and byways, including one of only two All American Roads in California, the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway. Redding is home to the Sundial Bridge–the world’s only glass-decked pedestrian bridge that is a working sundial–and world-class Turtle Bay Exploration Park.
