Anderson, CA - small town mountain living

I moved to Anderson, CA when I was looking for a home in the Shasta County area and I am very glad I did. This is a small town community that is very welcoming to new citizens. Many residents are employed by the county, retail or restaurants near by. However, the real estate market is priced to be very affordable, even to those on minimum wage jobs. Anderson sits on the shore of the Sacramento River and Anderson River Park is the center of many summer concerts and fairs. Local stores provide a good selection of goods, but for elegant shopping, it is necessary to drive to Redding, about 10 miles away. Here in Anderson, activities center on the outdoors, including hiking, fishing, biking and winter sports. Evenings are usually quiet unless there is a concert or fair at the park. Anderson is near Shasta Lake, a large recreational area famous for Mount Shasta, a high volcanic peak, and its family houseboat rentals on the lake. The lake is formed by the Shasta Dam, which allows visitors to find out all about the dam at a staffed visitor area.
