One of the largest outdoor outlet malls in the country (180 stores). Many, many brand name outlet stores spread out over four lots. Get a map and plan your trip. Two food courts. Very busy. That said, unless you are shopping for something specific or want to get your steps in, it's pretty typical.

Decorative arts museum that features 17th-19th century European and Asian works.
This isn't the Beaumont you are thinking of, as it is above the town in an area of open fields and horses. The museum is full of furniture so special it qualifies as art. It is a lovely stop on your way through the pass, to or from Palm Springs or beyond. They often have special events so check their website for an event that would make your stop even more meaningful.

Nestled in the foothills of the San Jacinto mountain range, the Country Club at Soboba Springs is a hidden gem surrounded by spectacular panoramic view and features waterfalls, streams and glimpses of indigenous wildlife. Our 32,000 sq ft Clubhouse with its Tuscan inspired architecture and knotty pine interior create a cozy ambiance. With a full service restaurant, special event spaces and a Par 72 - 7,165 yard PGA Championship golf course make the Country Club at Soboba Springs the perfect venue for a multitude of events including Weddings, Quinceanaras, Reunions, Retreats, Holiday parties, Birthdays, Golf Tournaments and much much more.
This is a very scenic, somewhat difficult course. Condition was good as was the pace of play. Our issue was the lack of cart service (because it was Wednesday, we were told) combined with the snack bar being closed at 1:45 (apparently, because the staffer was on a break). What snack bar closes in the middle of lunch hour? We were told we could get food upstairs at the full service restaurant, but we were at the turn and didn't want to wait the stated 20+ minutes for food and lose our place on the course. I appreciate the restaurant food is freshly prepared, but management has dropped the ball on this issue for the many golfers seeking a quick bite/refreshment during their round.

Went by to see what it was and it is FANTASTIC. If you want to know about fire engines, firefighters, equipment and history GO TO THIS MUSEUM. The building is a firehouse and has lots of rooms of exhibits, fire trucks, hand pumpers, bottles, uniforms, hats, badges, shields etc. There are items from all over to see. They have a children's room with hands on items and a fire truck out of doors for them to work the truck nozzle to shoot at a mock up " house on fire ". This is a GREAT Museum.

Snow line is a fun orchard to visit. You specifically have to try their apple cider mini donuts which they make in front of you!
Well they offer wine tasting, last time I tried the wine it was not very good. However maybe they've gotten better. Their apple cider is ridiculously expensive… But apparently that's an Oak Glen thing... I'm originally from New England we are top notch apple cider is about five dollars a gallon. The rest of the story is fun to look at. Nothing too exciting, but worth the stop. Again... the donuts are a MUST!!!

Measuring 7,003 yards in length, this 18-hole, desert-style golf course has good elevation changes and interesting holes.
For $45.00 it is worth the trip to Oak Valley. The course has seen better days with fairways rough, the greens however were in good shape and if you are a high handicapper the course is wide and pretty forgiving. We went with a large group so needed a place that met everyone's budget but was also able to give us a couple of tee times together. Never a good sign!! WE pretty much had the course to ourselves. The weather was interesting, raining and cold, while it was sunny and warm to the East. Course is closer to the mountains so I understand it is in a weather micro-climate. Check the forecast and bring warmer gear, a lot of our group missed the "Memo" about he weather and were under dressed, which seems impossible in March in the area. Staff were friendly, helpful with advise and the food in the restaurant decent.

Always worth stopping at when going to Cabazon to shop. This outlet centre has a variety of stores, that dependent on what you want, selection/prices can be good. My husband who is not an "Outlet shopper", got a great deal on a Waterproof jacket at Columbia. Many of the stores here are the more "active/outdoor" clothing stores. I love the Jockey store as very reasonable prices compared to Canada.

We made a quick detour to Oak Glen on our way to Palm Springs. It was at least 25 degrees cooler there! You're in the foothills, but there's no mountain driving to do. The preserve has easy walking paths to more difficult trails. Even in the summer it was mostly shaded and green, especially following the Spring Trail. Many native flowers still blooming in July! Great views, informative signs for the many, many native plants. They sell food and have a shop selling apple cider, pie, apple butter, etc. I knew it was popular for Fall apple picking, but it's also a great place to get away from the heat.

Two life-size dinosaurs directly off the highway between Los Angeles and Palm Springs -- this was worth the detour, and FREE! You can stop here, get your cool photos with awesome massive dinosaurs, and be back on the highway in 10 minutes. Not crowded on a Friday, so it was easy to get the photos we wanted. Was a windy and chilly February day, so we didn't do any climbing here, though that would be a good kids activity on a nicer day.
