Redlands, CA is a 125 year old city located within San Bernardino County, California. It is just about halfway between Los Angeles and Palm Springs. This area is nicknamed “The Jewel of the Inland Empire” and with good reason. Almost 70,000 people call Redlands home and they take great civic pride to make sure all of the city’s 36 square miles are kept up beautifully. Whether it be taking in a concert at the Redlands Bowl, the longest running outdoor music festival in the United States or enjoying the nation’s largest collection of Abraham Lincoln memorabilia west of the Mississippi at the Lincoln Shrine, the citizens here always have something to keep them going. That could be the reason why the city’s motto is “A City that Works.”
The year round sunny weather is what brings visitors here to shop, from small specialty boutiques to the larger chain stores. The climate also plays a role in the outdoor festivals and weekly farmer’s markets.
What to Do
This area offers a wide array of playhouse theatres and historic Victorian homes and structures, which give a glimpse of what life was like in the early 1900’s. These attractions and more bring visitors here – but they stay because of the citizens themselves. The philanthropic spirit of the citizens of Redlands lies deep within the city’s roots. Those roots stem from the Smiley Brother’s vision for Redlands in 1894. You don’t know who the Smiley Brothers were? Well, you had better stop on by the AK Smiley Library; it’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places, to find out about the Smiley’s contributions to Redlands. Almost every weekend there are beautification projects going on to upgrade the many parks, roads and schools here in Redlands and it’s not uncommon to see passersby stop their cars to get out and lend a hand.
