I have a relative who moved out to Riverside yesterday, from the Detroit area. He says his job is in San Bernardino. What can you tell me about this part of LA? Discuss. :cheers:
Its hot in the summer months, but no where as bad as Phoenix. It's dry compared to the coastal region, but nothing like Arizona, the High Desert or Las Vegas. The Inland Empire is slightly greener than those places. Actually there are some beautiful cities within the region, such as Clairemont, Upland, Loma Linda, Redlands. All of these cities are very green with lush trees everywhere. Even the older parts of Ontario have some beautiful homes, but most of the I.E. is track homes, and your typical suburban communities. If you ever come visit, make sure you visit those cities I mentioned that are beautiful. Clairemont has a Ivy League look and feel with a village surrounding the private colleges. which is a must see. Redlands has the University of Redlands, and the city has a lot of upper class residents. Its looks very Beverly Hills like, but with out the flashyness. Kinds feels more old money, instead of new money. If I had to live in the I.E. places like Clairemont, Upland, perhaps parts of Ontario, and Rancho Cucamonga would be my choices. Loma Linda and Redlands are nice, but they are a bit further away from LA than I want to be. The other cities at least are serviced by Metrolink into LA in about an hour commute.Paddington said:As I expected it looks something more like Phoenix, AZ than it does like the coastal parts of LA. I imagine it must be quite hot, dry, and desert like there.
