Up for a splurge? Shasta Lake, largest reservoir in the state, is known as the houseboat capital of California, attracting guests from around the world, many of whom bring their dogs aboard with them. While houseboat vacations are not cheap, they’re certainly novel, and this year, with the lake full almost to the brim, is one of the best in a decade to give it a spin. more »

Shasta Lake: Dog-friendly Houseboating Haven

Redding isn’t just California’s Trail Capital; nearby Shasta Lake is the state’s Houseboating Capital, as well. In the wake of a wet winter, Shasta will be filled to capacity this summer and houseboating business will be brisk, so if you’ve ever considered a houseboat vacation that includes your dog, now’s the time to make reservations. Several Shasta Lake marinas rent houseboats ranging in size and style from stripped-down models popular with fishermen to ginormous floating palaces like the 65-foot, triple-decker Titan, which features satellite-tracking TV, eight flat-screen monitors, a jetted tube slide and a hot tub big enough for a dozen (no one will tell if your dog hops in, too). Shasta’s 360 miles of jagged shoreline are indented with cover after cove where houseboaters can anchor out in solitude or bob in the company of others. more »

Redding is an easy, 2.5-hour drive up Interstate 5 from Sacramento, and in March and April you’ll absolutely relish the scenery: landscapes are velvety green, orchards are in full pink-and-white bloom and the weather is just a little bit better than perfect. On a clear day, you’ll see Mount Shasta’s snowy cone from more than 100 miles away. Bunk down in town and take a day to explore close by while you get the lay of the land. more »
