Inland Empire Highlights

Natural Beauty

The Inland Empire covers some incredibly diverse landscapes, providing a refreshing change from California’s desert and coastal climates. Big Bear and Lake Arrowhead are two of the biggest draws, dotted with picturesque mountain towns and offering outdoor activities in both summer and winter.


The region offers some unique attractions to explore during your stay. Start at Auto Club Speedway — the largest sports venue in Southern California — which hosts NASCAR and drag races, plus other fun events. If history is more your thing, try the Route 66 Museum, honoring the iconic highway that passes through the Inland Empire.

Wine Country

California’s fertile climate means that this region is excellent for wine-making. Temecula Valley is a good place to start (it’s sometimes called Southern California’s answer to Napa Valley), with more than 40 wineries to visit. To really appreciate it, we recommend booking a hot air balloon ride. There’s also Rancho Cucamonga, home to some of the country’s oldest wineries.
