REDDING, CALIF.–One of the brightest attractions between San Diego and the Oregon border is just a stone’s throw from I-5 in Redding. Next to the spectacular Sundial Bridge is the must-see Turtle Bay Museum which overlooks the bridge, the bay and McConnell Arboretum, part of Turtle Bay Exploration Park.  Exploring is key to experiencing the sensations, sights and sounds at the amazing museum where travelers of all ages are welcome to take a different kind of journey.
