Not sure which forum so hope this is alright...

We are travelling by car from Windsor CA to Grants Pass OR in one day. This is one leg of a road trip from Victoria BC to Sonoma County, return. We have done this trip multiple times, but always on hwy 101, not the I5 as we are doing this trip. I don't have anything planned as a pit-stop for this leg besides stopping for In and Out Burger in Redding. Is there anywhere fun for kids to stretch our legs at? Two 40yr olds and a 7yr old girl.

Rose, do you mean other sites besides Redding or in Redding when you stop there?

Look up Redding’s Sundial Bridge.

Could be either, somewhere in Redding or another location would be fine. Just fun places enroute.

The Sundial bridge and Turtle Bay exploration park would be great. If you don't have time for the exploration park, there is a trail system along the bridge where you can stretch your legs with a walk along the river.

The beautiful McCloud river and falls is not too far off of I-5 depending on how much time you want to spend. There is an easy hike between lower, middle, and upper falls. https:/…

What time of year will you be making this trip?

Castle Craig's, Burney Falls, Red Bluff are all close to I5 and might be of interest.

I-5 is pretty boring and Redding will be very hot. 101 from Windsor is just a half hour longer and a prettier route with more places of interest to stop.
