By car is currently the cheapest way to go to Anderson. There are two major roads to take: Interstate 5 and California State Highway 273. The fastest way is, by far, I-5 because I-5 is much straighter and CA-273 has construction work on it a lot. However, CA-273 runs along and frequently connects with a major industrial strip called Frontage Road. If you wish to go to one of these places along it on the way, be prepared for a slow ride along CA-273.
There is only one bus line that goes into Anderson: Greyhound and RABA.
Another is Redding Area Bus Authority, or RABA for short. The route that goes into Anderson is the Anderson Express, which leaves from Gate 9 at the Downtown Transit Center in Redding and then turns back at the Prime Outlets in Anderson. (To learn more about it, visit their website at http://www.ci.redding.ca.us/raba/rabahome.htm).
Anderson is a small town, so it is wise to just drive.
Anderson River Park
This, by far, is the largest and most familiar park in Anderson. Most of the sightseeing, however, is just the wildlife. There is plenty of it, though. Birds are abundant, fish jump out of the water (in season), and sometimes, you will see frogs, lizards, and some snakes.
