California’s Inland Empire is a region east of Los Angeles that encompasses the San Bernardino Mountains, the desert resort town of Palm Springs, cities such as Riverside, and bedroom communities like Rancho Cucamonga.
The Inland Empire is a geography of mountain and valleys, which makes for some great views throughout the region. The San Bernadino National Forest covers more than 800,000 acres, and is a popular destination for hiking to sites like Toro Peak and Big Falls, the tallest waterfall in Southern California.
The IE has home to a number of cultural venues including the historic California Theater, the Riverside Fox Theater, and the San Manuel Amphitheater. The Ontario Mills is one of the biggest and most-visited shopping malls in North America. Historic Route 66 runs through the Inland Empire, offering a glimpse of what was once known as “The Mainstreet of America.”
Riverside is known for its striking horizon of hills like Mount Rubidoux, Tecolote Hill, and Box Springs Mountain Preserve, which is a well-liked spot for hiking and biking. There are 28 neighborhoods including a historic Downtown area home to the Mission Inn Museum and the Culver Center of the Arts. Riverside’s restaurant scene is a mix of new chains and old local institutions like The Lucky Greek and Templo Del Sol.
Located at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains, Rancho Cucamonga is a popular home for commuters, but it is a charming residential city in its own right. Rancho Cucamonga’s Victoria Gardens is an outdoor mall designed to simulate a traditional downtown complete with a library and the Victoria Gardens Cultural Center. The city has some of the oldest wineries in California, the Arnold Palmer-designed Empire Lakes golf course, and its own minor league baseball team, the Cucamonga Quakes.
