Inland Empire

Southern California’s Inland Empire is a secret among locals. They flock to the region, made up of San Bernardino and Riverside counties, because of its diverse terrain. The Inland Empire includes Joshua Tree National Park, which stretches out across nearly 800,000 acres with its remarkable desert landscape. Then there’s the San Bernardino Mountains, where you can cruise the Rim of the World Scenic Byway to see stunning cliffs and make your way to the blue waters of Lake Arrowhead or Big Bear Lake. And you could visit the rolling vineyards of Temecula Valley’s wine country and try a pour or two.
