If you are looking for a getaway that the whole family will enjoy, consider some fun in Anderson, CA. We went to research some of the best fishing in the state, along the Sacramento River, and ended up stumbling onto a really fun family trip.

It is always nice to descend from the mountains to a lower elevation in the springtime to feel the warmer weather, and that was my idea. We were pleasantly surprised upon arrival. The Baymont Inn in Anderson has a really nice indoor pool and spa area. It was then I realized I wished I had brought some kids along. There is plenty to do in Anderson so definitely bring the whole family. The outlet stores stretched across the parking lot that lead out of our hotel. We found Mary’s Pizza Shack also in the shopping center where we enjoyed a really nice dinner. There are Mary’s’ shacks spread from there to the bay area, and it is obvious why they are so successful. We will be heading back there for more dining fun son.

The Jolly Giant Flea Market is another fun family stop and it is not far from our cozy room at the Baymont Inn in Anderson. With fabulous finds from antiques to produce and tools, this place is indoors and is well worth a look.

As soon as we arrived at the Baymont, our gracious hostess Karen pointed out the fresh coffee station where flavored creamer and half and half are dispensed. You can enjoy a hot beverage and watch the kids swim. The Baymont Inn is also located just down the road from the fairground which gets pretty important this time of year. The Shasta District Fair will take center stage June 12 through 15, 2013. The theme this year is “Let Freedom Ring”.

We arrived for our stay and were immediately pleased to see the sparkling indoor pool next to the lobby. We were warmly greeted by manager Karen.

She pointed out the 24-hour fresh coffee in the big “stay fresh” hot pots along with the dispenser next to it for CoffeeMate® or half and half. I’m happy. Our room had just been renovated in rich colors with comfortable beds too.

Check out Anderson for family fun and great fishing.
