Crestline, Lake Arrowhead, Big Bear are all worth the trip. All have beautiful mountain views and fun things to do. Lake Gregory for picnics and swimming. Lake Arrowhead for dining and unique shopping. Big Bear for snow boarding/skiing, plus a quaint village with shops and many good restaurants/diners. Take your camera and if you are into hiking, there's lots of good, save trails. Also, plenty of lodging in this forest.

This casino is just very convenient for a lot of people who shouldn’t even be going to a casino. That’s the start of an old post. I had some complaints regarding the pit bosses and how unfriendly they seem to be to regular players in High Limit table games. Just recently a dealer mentioned that I could request the table be RESERVED to prevent the mid shoe buy-ins. Those people who are “afraid to win are are the “table experts” who are playing the table minimum bet of $50, which is absurd. That same visit a pit boss in the second High Limit table gaming area told me the same thing. Later I found out from the initial dealer that she told the pit boss to make mention of that to me when she walked though the other room and saw me playing. Good looking out, from the dealer and the pit boss that day!

Lake Arrowhead Queen

Reviewed By Linda L - Vancouver, Canada

We bought our tickets 10 minutes before the 11:00 sailing and there were only 10 of us on the paddlewheeler, so it was almost like a personal tour. Captain Craig kept us entertained, regaling us with historical facts about the area, pointing out celebrities' homes, and telling us some pretty corny jokes - and sometimes breaking into song, too! It was a perfect day to be out on the water and the time went by quickly. This is definitely worthwhile doing, and the price is reasonable too.

Hulda Crooks Park

Reviewed By msdebra007 - Loma Linda, California

Great park that has all kinds of uses! There are two sets of play equipment and another set of swings. There is sand, there are large fields of grass, and there are two dog parks (one for small dogs and another for big ones. The latter is all dirt and dust and is hidden in the other side of the hill). There are also tennis courts. Lots of picnickers and frisbee/football throwers on a Saturday afternoon. Plus, behind the park, there are extensive hiking/mountain biking trails all over the hills. This is a favorite with locals.

Redlands Bowl

Reviewed By John S - California

I have been going to the Redlands Bowl for over 18 years and it has become a rich family tradition. We go to the Summer Music Festival all summer long at the Bowl. Last summer I only missed one show and that's because it rained and I didn't want to go to the other venue. The entertainment is top-notch and would probably cost you anywhere from $25 to $50 in other venues. Oh yeah, did I mention the Redlands Bowl Summer Music Festival is free!? This makes it a perfect venue to take my family of seven.

Yes, it is free, though they do pass around a free will offering during intermission. Obviously, they also accept donations so please check out their website. Parking is at a premium, so you might want to go at least a half hour to an hour early and park just north of the bowl across the street from the post office. There is also parking in the old Redlands Mall parking lot, also north of the Bowl. For those with difficulty walking, they will let you get a little closer to park or be dropped off.

The seating is bench-style and there really are no bad seats, though you may want a blanket or pillow to soften the seat a bit. Some people choose to bring lawn chairs or blankets and sit on the sides or the very back. Many people bring food, and sometimes beer or wine. Drinking is not necessarily allowed (open container) but the crowd sort of polices itself and keeps the wine bottles on the down low. It's the worst kept secret.

Overall, it is great family fun in a safe environment. I hope to go for years and years. Here are a few of the shows we've seen over the years: Bollywood Spectacular, Rhythmic Circus, Riders in the Sky, Modern Gentlemen, Celtic Spring, Tarzan, Oklahoma, California Guitar Trio, The Voetberg Family Band, and much, much more!

Original McDonald's Site and Museum

Reviewed By misopiso88 - Seattle, Washington

We had seen the movie "The Founder" so thought it would be interesting to stop at the site of the original McDonald's. So many cool artifacts as well as many things borrowed from the museum to produce the movie. The majority of items are happy meal toys from various years and countries which is an interesting glimpse into pop culture. The museum is FREE which is very generous since it is privately run. Recommend for a quick stop if you are a McDonald's fan!

The Lincoln Memorial Shrine

Reviewed By lespes - Redlands, Ca

This is the only museum dedicated to Lincoln west of the Mississippi and a great resource for historians doing research. It's also a great place for visitors to become more acquainted with Lincoln's life and Civil War history. Docents are available to give short tours and explanations. One treasured artifact is an original Norman Rockwell painting donated by the artist himself. A must-see in the Inland Empire!

Hangar 24 Craft Brewery

Reviewed By reaperman2die4 - Toronto, Canada

I visited the craft brewery during the Redlands air show. They were the main sponsor for the show.
They have many varieties of beer! From light pilsner to heavier darker ales.
Even though the day I visited was very hot and the brewery was very busy. It is very enjoyable.

Kimberly Crest House & Gardens

Reviewed By JoeyDog - Fillmore, California

Arrived just in time for the last tour of the day. My husband and I were the only ones so we got a private tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The house has original furnishings and is well maintained. The grounds are very lovely and enjoyed walking around. A must see if you are in the area.
