With wild stretches of forest wilderness and spectacular volcanos, the Shasta Cascade region can seem impossibly vast. Fortunately, many of its most noteworthy destinations, including historic Victorian homes in red Bluff, and Turtle Bay Exploration Park in redding, the charming town at the base of Mount Shasta, are all near a major highway, Interstate 5. Feeling more adventurous? Head out on magical back roads to Lassen Peak, a still steaming volcano that last erupted between 1914 and 1917 and to Shasta Lake, a mecca for lovers of houseboating, water-skiing and wakeboarding. Head northeast from redding to fnd the incredible and fascinating caves of Lava Beds National Monument. Another winner: Plumas County's trout-flled streams and gorgeous golf courses. Whichever route you take, scenic sights are as plentiful as the pine cones.
