Riverside County

Riverside is the fourth largest county in California and the 10th largest in the United States. It covers more than 7,300 square miles and is home to 2.4 million residents. What makes our county run? It’s talent, perseverance and loads of dedication from public servants, volunteers, residents and representatives serving in departments, as well as an array of commissions, committees and boards. Each one of these individuals contributes to our safety, security, convenience and welfare.

San Bernardino County

San Bernardino County is located in southeastern California, with Inyo and Tulare Counties to the north, Kern and Los Angeles Counties to the west, and Orange and Riverside Counties to the south. The county’s diverse geography and extensive natural resources, as well as its proximity to major economic and population centers, provide unique opportunities for varied industry sectors to thrive, including commerce, education, tourism and recreation

Rim of the World Scenic Byway

On the drive through the mountains, you have to remember to make a stop on Rim of the World Scenic Byway. The mountain highways wind through the San Bernardino Mountains, taking riders along the edges of the mountains for sweeping views of Southern California. It would be almost a crime to not pull off and take a few photos

Temecula Valley

Temecula Valley Wine Country invites you to savor the hundreds of award-winning wines offered by our member wineries while enjoying the irresistible charm of our friendly tasting rooms. Rural in nature, sustainable in farming practices and including an agricultural preserve known as the Citrus/Vineyard zone, the Temecula Valley is widely recognized as the 'jewel' of Riverside County.

Ontario International Airport

Ontario International Airport (ONT) is located in the center of Southern California, approximately 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles. It is a full-service airport with nonstop commercial jet service to 23 major airports in the U.S., Mexico and Taiwan.

Route 66

Back in its glory days, Route 66 began in Chicago and ended along the bluffs overlooking the Pacific, a 2,451-mile journey through farmlands, plains, and desert. The highway crossed the Colorado River and entered California, then after a long stretch through the Mojave (where an extensive section can still be driven) reached the Inland Empire.

It's officially summer, so that automatically means eating as much ice cream as possible. Wouldn't you agree @handelsupland? ...

At @r66ssp, they pride themselves on their features that visitors love. Their steel gallery is one of the most popular areas at the range. Each bay has color coordinated steel targets, so everyone knows exactly which targets are their own. Plus, each area has mesh dividers. It's pretty great. PC: @r66ssp ...

The Point aka Panorama Point in Redlands. We think the view speaks for itself. Here are some tips on how to get there from our friends at AboutRedlands.com. I-10 E, Take exit 81 for Ford St, Turn left onto Ford St, Take the 1st right onto Reservoir Rd, Take the 1st right onto S Wabash Ave, Turn left onto E Sunset Dr. N, Turn left onto Panorama Dr/Panorama Point Dr. Point in Redlands. Closed from sunset to sunrise. 📷: @deedizzle20 ...

We thought it would be best to go straight to the source. As @visitpalmspings say...

Did you know Southern California has its own "wine country?" Temecula is the ideal place to indulge in a variety of wines. There are more than 35 wineries in the area making it a great place to try different wines with a new experience at each winery. 📷: @tweet.eat.travel ...

Recharge. Regroup. Recuperate. That's exactly what can happen when you spend a bit of time in nature. How many of you take nature walks or enjoy hiking?

There is something about being outdoors that just feels good. Comment below your favorite place to enjoy nature. Let us know if you can't think of one, we have a few recommendations! #MtSanJacinto📷: @taming_mountains

We may not have an ocean, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy a sunset by the water. Summer = lake days and we couldn't be more excited. @LakePerris 📷: @lake_perris_explorer ...

We're having dreams of Hawaiian breezes... if you are having the same dream, you can make your dreams come true at Ontario International Airport. As of now, @flyONT now offers Nonstop service to Honolulu (HNL). We've been celebrating the news with Mai Tais. When are you planning your trip? 📷: @flyONT ...

It's heating up. Summer is almost here. We see a nice pool in our future... This calls for a new bathing suit! ontario mills, it's your time to shine! 📷: @simonpropertygroup ...

#DayTripIdea palm springs aerial tramway: If you're trying to get up, get out and get something... Catch a ticket to the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. Did you know it is the world’s largest rotating tram car? The tram ride takes you to the top of Mount San Jacinto. There you can decide if you want to sightsee, hike or dine at the mountain top restaurant, Pines Cafe. Also, you can't forget to take a picture on the way up. If you don't capture the moment, did it really happen? 📷: @los.ricardos ...
