What Does “Adventure” Mean To You?
In the magical area that surrounds the town of McCloud, unlimited adventure awaits. If adventure = adrenaline, then McCloud should be your base camp! If adventure = time away from the maelstrom of everyday life, then McCloud can be your oasis. If adventure = indulgence, then McCloud has many fine hotels, boutiques and restaurants in which you can indulge. If adventure = quality time with the family, then McCloud can help recharge your batteries by allowing you to rediscover each other.
Adventure… You define it, we’ll provide it!
Part of the reason that we created the McCloud Blog was to serve as a reference point for visitors to showcase all the things there are to see and do around McCloud. We actually found the town after compiling a list of things that we wanted to do within an hour of our eventual retirement home, and then searching for locations around the country that offered those amenities.
This section of our site is divided into 3 areas accessed through the pull-down menu : 1) Local Activities, 2) Day Trips, and 3) Surf & Turf Summer. Each section contains our recommendations for things to see and do throughout our region based on either word of mouth, or on our actual experiences. If you’re visiting the area, we hope you find these adventures to your liking! Be sure to check out the DIRECTORY section of the site as well for a comprehensive listing of places to STAY, EAT and SHOP while you’re here as well, along with a list of COMMUNITY contacts.
LOCAL ACTIVITIES: These are adventures that can be found close to home – within an hour of McCloud – and it may be possible to squeeze more than one of these activities into a single day. For the most part, these activities don’t require a ton of planning, and are fun and easy to enjoy!
DAY TRIPS: These adventures take you further from your home base of McCloud and may require some advance planning. Most of these activities can be accomplished in a single day, but a few call for an overnight stay away from McCloud. The great thing about our town is that it is centrally located to everything that Northern California and Southern Oregon has to offer. From the coast to the Crags, from redwoods to raging rivers, or from lava to Lake Shasta – your adventure awaits!
SURF & TURF SUMMER: This is an adventure that we created exclusively for guests at the Eagle’s Rest Family Hideaway. During summer months, guests can add-on the Surf & Turf package and enjoy our 26′ luxury pontoon and two Yamaha waverunners for the duration of their stay. Great for multiple families who are vacationing together, Surf & Turn provides a compelling alternative to the traditional houseboat vacation.
