wow, what building is that? It looks like Spain. I like inland empire as well. People complain about all the cows, but I think seeing agriculture around cities is so beautiful.

Most of the old Dutch dairies are gone now. Replaced by ugly proto-typical cheap tract homes, especially in the Ontario area.

Inland Empire is my home, Corona actually (as you can tell I'm sure).

Lots of projects/renovations around Market and University streets in Riverside but they aren't going that well. Alot are over budget, behind schedule etc. Some big building going on in Corona, a 6 story office bulding! :) Not that big compared to most buildings on here of course but big for us. Plus the Dos Lagos development by my hosue that is supposed to have two lakes with ampitheatre and "living mall". Looks impressive on paper, will see how it turns out.

Most other projects include homes, homes, strip malls, homes, big ugly blocky commercial buildings, homes, and more homes.

Unfortunately no one has really realized the pontential of Riverside becoming a big city because the city council ain't too bright and most developers don't care. Plus there is the whole problem of the city being very "sprawly" and not all that pretty to look at. All in good time...

LOL, yeah, this is an old thread. However, that Mission Inn IS really beautiful. I also particularly like that clocktower in Threehundred's second to last pic, where/what is that, btw?

This would probably be a good time to ask as well...any updates on IE stuff?

Ha! No one cares to mention BEAUTIFUL Rancho Cucamonga?... ;-)

Anyhow, it's been my home for quite a few years, and has seen some SERIOUS recent development. The Victoria Gardens project and upcoming surrounding development are doing a lot to make it a very attractive place to live. Unfortunately, with all of the development, the image of the city's roots in wine agriculture are progressively being erased as abandoned grapevine fields are being transformed into housing.

Yeah, they do a pretty good job of keeping the city up around here. A bit like South OC. Here's another shot that I happened to have, but I'll try to add more varying pics to this thread....

The Mission Inn is a great place to dine. Check out the restaurants and there is a old spanish church at the top of the hotel.
