Our little crew recently set out on an adventure to visit some family in the Inland Empire, CA. While we were visiting, we took the opportunity to do some poking around. Here are some of the wonders we beheld while exploring the Inland Empire – Riverside and Redlands, CA.
Our first outing was to Riverside. We were met with a drizzle which was a welcome event considering the endless summer we left behind in Arizona (yes, it’s still pretty warm in October and we are over it). Our first stop was Back to the Grind Coffee shop. It’s a wonderful shop full of art and great atmosphere.
Back out on the streets, public art and old architecture provide many treats for the eyeballs.
After exploring the streets for a while, we decided to check out the Riverside Metropolitan Museum which was conveniently free!
Our next outing was to the quaint city of Redlands. The downtown was fun to explore. One of the highlights for us was the comic store A Shop Called Quest which was loaded with interesting comics, books, toys, and art.
Walking outside also provided many visual treats.
The last stop in Redlands was Prospect Park for a burrito picnic and wandering.
I hope you enjoyed exploring Riverside and Redlands, CA with us. We love poking around new and old places and sharing them with you.
