It’s America the beautiful’s birthday, and we’re counting our blessings to live in such a picturesque place under her cloak of freedom.

If you’re bound for the North Coast to escape the heat, make a pit stop at Strawhouse Resorts and Café in Big Flat, along the Trinity River. It’s an unexpected treasure, with carefully tended gardens, spectacular organic coffee and views that will have you pulling out your camera in nothing flat.

Once you hit the coast, check out the Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, where elk roam free, ancient trees build a magnificent canopy and the morning fog will have you pulling on a hoodie even in the middle of July.

Dreamers? We know them, we love them and we are them. We’re inspired by the work of the dreamers behind the Redding Fashion Alliance, who are working to grow a “creative economy” and strengthen the local fashion community through education, economic development, opportunity and collaboration. 

We’ll also tell you more about John Mancasola, who’s the new president and CEO of the McConnell Foundation, but is certainly no stranger to the organization. He’s helping to bolster a culture of philanthropy – and if you enjoy Redding’s fireworks this year, you’ll be one of the many beneficiaries of the foundation’s generosity.

Don’t forget to join us at Enjoy Movies in the Park every Friday in July at Anderson River Park, and July 8 on the Tehama County Department of Education Lawn. Movies start at dusk – bring your blankets, lawn chairs and picnic baskets – or visit our on-site food vendors during this free community activity. 

Happy Independence Day, and enjoy!
