May 2018 Enjoy—Honor Roll
● By Enjoy Magazine
WE’RE SURE ENJOYING all those May flowers that those much-appreciated April showers brought our way – Mother Nature gets an A-plus from us. Let’s take some time to smell the roses! Our suggestion for a first stop? Head on over to McArthur for Mother’s Day weekend. The Heritage Balloon Festival will send you up in the sky in a brightly-colored hot-air balloon to celebrate the Inter-Mountain Fair’s centennial.
If you’re hungry, the North State is resplendent with waterfalls, rivers, creeks and countryside that set the perfect tone for an al fresco meal with someone you love. We’ve got some tips to help you pack the perfect picnic basket for your outdoor dinner. Don’t forget dessert – treat yourself to a box of Lindauer Chocolates, where many of the ingredients come from the family orchards in Tehama County. We’ll tell you the story behind this shop’s sweet success.
Meanwhile, you don’t have to travel to Africa to hobnob with exotic animals – antelope, zebra and giraffe roam at the B Bryan Preserve in Point Arena. This refuge for endangered species is open for tours, and it’s well worth a stop on your coastal jaunt.
Ready for a career change? Borrow some courage from some guys who moved from the big city to the town of Dunsmuir and reinvented themselves. Yes, you CAN be a fly fisherman when you grow up!
It’s Redding’s turn for all things rodeo, and this 70-year-old tradition is put together by a committee that’s been enshrined in the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame. If you need to get your rodeo spirit wrangled up before the main event, meet us at the pancake breakfast.
Don’t forget to give the special moms in your life a little extra love this month. If you still need a gift, we’ve got you covered – meet us down at Enjoy the Store and we’ll help you out.
Enjoy Northern California living!
