What travelers are saying
- We Loved the tour! the Dosen was very knowledgeable and had a passion for the Mission Inn. Our group was lucky in being able to see all of the rooms/spaces since none were being rented at the time.
The history was interesting, very ornate, and the most important part to me was that the family who built it weren't a bunch of wealthy jerks! they were actually very decent human beings which made me love the place even more. I made a donation at the end because I wanted to help support what they do and to keep the tours going. I would HIGHLY recommend you take the tour! and at only $20 per adult, it was honestly well worth it.Written 2 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Great array of airplanes. The SR-71A Blackbird is inside the museum along with other educational displays. Outside there is a Phantom RF-4C; F101B Voodoo Fighter; B-52 and the KC-135 Stratotanker to name a few along with the Service Dog Memorial. Not to be missed.Written 16 October 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- One of my favorite local hiking spots!!!! I love Mt. Rubidoux and have been coming since I was a kid, it’s a relaxing hike with a difficult and easy trail. I’ve personally never had issues with anyone’s dogs or excessive poop left behind. Last time I was there it was partially closed for maintenance of the trails. Hopefully when I go back it’s fully open.Written 11 July 2023
- Far cooler than it should be. Lots of good, easy hikes. Nice place to have a picnic, and cool places for kids to explore. The visitors center was ok at best, and the gift shop was closed, but it is definitely worth a trip.Written 12 June 2023
- This cemetery is beautiful and has impeccable landscaping. It honors the fallen in a beautiful and appropriate fashion.Written 15 October 2022
- Medium-sized venue just right for a solo performer. Easy check-in, helpful ushers. Background music before performance started was much too loud and interefered with conversation.Written 4 December 2022
- Beautiful private home from yesteryear. Docents told us a lot of history of Riverside. It was fascinating. We went on a rainy day so we couldn’t look at the grounds, but it was still well worth it. Cute small gift shop with a variety of items.Written 8 April 2023
- Lovely expansive grounds. Nice short hikes. Beautiful varied regions of plantings. I especially enjoyed the South African garden that was in bloom.Written 27 March 2022
- This is the Van Buren Drive-In Theatre.
Take your friends and see a movie with your friends

Enjoy!Written 15 January 2021
- This is an absolutely beautiful spot. We packed a lunch and set out to hike the Canyon Trail, which said 3.5 miles. You actually hike on a part of the Pacific Crest Trail. Moderate is pretty accurate, but if you have any fear of heights this may not be the trail for you. It's narrow in spots as you go up, and pretty challenging for those of us with arthritis. (Fit but creaky!) It was hard on my knees and feet, pretty rocky in many spots. A walking stick is highly recommended. My Fitbit showed us walking about 5 miles when we were done, and it took us about three hours (we went slow coming down). I would also not do this hike on a windy day. We ate our lunch in the Ranger Station, and made sure to leave a donation.Written 18 February 2023
- My adult children had driven out to see the lights at the mission inn. It was early and raining. I looked for something dry to do the photography museum. They do charge admission it’s affordable for students and seniors but more for adults.
We went in and it’s 3 stories of exhibits uniquely displayed on the 2nd and 3rd floor. Loved the stair way with cameras displayed in the center. The old photos on the 3rd floor were fun to see too.
It was an enjoyable experience, we stayed dry and had fun.Written 10 December 2019
- Very nice park,there was a lot of shade and also open areas for the older kids to play,however the bathrooms were very dirty.Written 29 May 2019
- Riverside had a lovely little museum... it was a little frayed around the edges and a little eccentric, but had interesting exhibits and terrific, engaged staff and programs for kids. And some of the Cahuilla baskets on display were awesome, well worth a trip as works of art. But last year, the city abruptly decided to close the museum for "upgrading"... but upgrading without a budget, plan, or timeline. It's a loss for the citizens, for schools, and for visitors looking for a pleasant hour with a few top-notch surprises.Written 19 August 2018
- What a gem! Definitely a must see art museum in SoCal. I loved the building and the collection of Chicano art, bringing an under appreciated art community to the forefront. Loved it.Written 15 October 2023
