    If you like a challenge when walking at an incline you will like MOUNT RUBIDOUX.This place gives you many choices it yours to do what you will.If u want a short distance hike around the hill or if you want to walk around a short track u can. Like I said the challenge the heart pounding mountain is ALL UP TOO YOU.

    The outdoor collection is impressive. The number of trainers from WWII to present is impressive accompanied by legends like the F111 and F4. Even a Canberra bomber which I have not seen anywhere in the US before being a British design. And a Space Shuttle booster tucked in the far corner. Each Air Museum has it unique surprises and this one has its share with a Russian collection including an Antonov 2. Definitely worth a few hours of enjoyment wandering this collection. If you are lucky you will also see active Air Force tankers and drones flying from the neighboring base.

    We took the Mission Inn tour and it was top notch! The tour guide was great, friendly, lively and knowledgeable. The Mission Inn is a great example of good American architecture (we can have nice things!) and the history is interesting too. Would highly recommend!

    We stumbled upon the Whitewater Preserve and WHAT A GEM it was! A long and windy road took you through fields of tumbleweed and dried-up water beds only to end at this beautiful park. A privately owned and funded preserve - it seemed to be a favorite among the locals.

    Thanks to all who gave us the historical backstories.
    One downside - the bathrooms did not seem to be routinely clean. Sadly, that is why it only earned four stars.

    Enjoyed our walk through the various citrus trees, looking at the names and varieties, especially the unique finger limes!

    The museum was fairly basic, but I appreciated the attention to the perspective of indigenous people vis a vis the Missions.

    Probably like many (if not most) of us, we only go to Cemeteries during the most tragic and difficult of circumstances.

    To be sure, mine was such a visit. But given the manner in which the services were conducted and the incredible number of people that shared our grief, I seemed to find peace. And it also allowed me to visit the graves of several relatives and fallen warrior friends.

    RNC is very large. So after services are conducted it is very easy to find solitude and peaceful time for reflecting. The grounds are incredibly well-kept and beautiful, if not simple. Given its size, expect to see a worker on a riding mower continuing to care for it. But they are infinitely patient allowing you to pass at your own pace.

    Bless those empathetic people that care for you as well as your loved ones ....

    Lovely expansive grounds. Nice short hikes. Beautiful varied regions of plantings. I especially enjoyed the South African garden that was in bloom.

    One block away of two buildings, old one is small, new building is big. One ticket can visit both. You still can find something unique style to attract you that you can't find out from the other art museum. People are friendly.

    Fox Theatre has been around longer than I have. Good times and bad times. Officially the former right now. The venue still has the old school theatre setting, with less than a thousand seats. Every time I have gone (most recently saw Boz Scaggs for the first time) I have had great seats because there aren’t really any bad ones.

    Overall I love the setting, free parking and an awesome food lab right next door. But the one missing star is the exclusive association with Ticketmaster. That means the tickets, while quite reasonable at the door, will never be available that way. Every ticket will have a huge markup, which sucks and doesn’t put any money in Fox’s pockets. Would be awesome if they could be independent, but I guess those days are gone.

    Despite that I still love the venue, just don’t love Ticketmaster.

    Playing golf was fun but the food was awful. My granddaughter wanted a couple friends to join her for kinda birthday party. We ordered 9 pizzas and of course drinks as well. Most of the pizzas were over cooked, burnt. Would recommend eating prior to playing golf.

    I’ve thought about visiting this place for a long time. The conspicuous statue of a mammoth that can be seen when driving along CA State Route 60 has always been intriguing. I eventually goggled mammoth statue near highway and found out that it was part of the Jurupa Mt’s Discovery Center.

    They don’t have much of a website; most information is gained from reading TripAdvisor, Yelp, and random travel blogs. It appears that just about everything there is free but if you are ever in doubt feel free to find someone who works there and ask.
    There is a museum and a gift shop separated by a small courtyard with petrified wood and a cactus garden. There is also a small paddock with a few tortoises in it. The gift shop is home to some live snakes, lizards, and creepy crawlies that you can view. And there is also a large fossil dinosaur there. The museum has some fossils, geological specimens, and local native people’s artifacts.

    Behind the museum is a cactus garden and nursery where you can buy some plants. The cactus garden I large and has some winding trails thru it along which you will occasionally see some dinosaur statues.

    There are many more dinosaur statues in the hills beyond the cactus garden and museum. There are signs that say do not enter without a guide but all the people I saw there seemed to be ignoring that and heading up. It’s a nice and easy walk/hike to the dinosaur statues, some of them have seen better days. They aren’t to scale and may not even be representative of any dinosaur that ever lived but they are interesting to see.

    This wilderness area has tons of up and down hills along its paths. Warning depend on on the time of year it is very hot and dry and I have seen several coyotes and rattle snakes. This is easy to get to and they have parking available.
