I have been going to the Redlands Bowl for over 18 years and it has become a rich family tradition. We go to the Summer Music Festival all summer long at the Bowl. Last summer I only missed one show and that's because it rained and I didn't want to go to the other venue. The entertainment is top-notch and would probably cost you anywhere from $25 to $50 in other venues. Oh yeah, did I mention the Redlands Bowl Summer Music Festival is free!? This makes it a perfect venue to take my family of seven.
Yes, it is free, though they do pass around a free will offering during intermission. Obviously, they also accept donations so please check out their website. Parking is at a premium, so you might want to go at least a half hour to an hour early and park just north of the bowl across the street from the post office. There is also parking in the old Redlands Mall parking lot, also north of the Bowl. For those with difficulty walking, they will let you get a little closer to park or be dropped off.
The seating is bench-style and there really are no bad seats, though you may want a blanket or pillow to soften the seat a bit. Some people choose to bring lawn chairs or blankets and sit on the sides or the very back. Many people bring food, and sometimes beer or wine. Drinking is not necessarily allowed (open container) but the crowd sort of polices itself and keeps the wine bottles on the down low. It's the worst kept secret.
Overall, it is great family fun in a safe environment. I hope to go for years and years. Here are a few of the shows we've seen over the years: Bollywood Spectacular, Rhythmic Circus, Riders in the Sky, Modern Gentlemen, Celtic Spring, Tarzan, Oklahoma, California Guitar Trio, The Voetberg Family Band, and much, much more!

This is the only museum dedicated to Lincoln west of the Mississippi and a great resource for historians doing research. It's also a great place for visitors to become more acquainted with Lincoln's life and Civil War history. Docents are available to give short tours and explanations. One treasured artifact is an original Norman Rockwell painting donated by the artist himself. A must-see in the Inland Empire!

I visited the craft brewery during the Redlands air show. They were the main sponsor for the show.
They have many varieties of beer! From light pilsner to heavier darker ales.
Even though the day I visited was very hot and the brewery was very busy. It is very enjoyable.

Arrived just in time for the last tour of the day. My husband and I were the only ones so we got a private tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The house has original furnishings and is well maintained. The grounds are very lovely and enjoyed walking around. A must see if you are in the area.

Lunch at the Mitten Building was worth the search for the front, unmarked, double brown doors! (Hint: It's next door to the Boiler Room.) The list of sandwiches is interesting but what was special was that one can have the sandwich ingredients made into a salad. The result was that the pulled pork salad was absolutely delicious! it is a bit noisy but not too distracting and the service was lovely! Definitely worth returning!

The museum isn't huge, but the exhibits are interesting. It's a nice stop, just off the 10 on the way to the mountains or desert. There's a great display on prehistoric animals that roamed the area: camels, horses, sloths, mammoths, etc. They are expanding their exhibit area and hopefully will have more local displays to go with the birds. The human history is not very extensive, but great for kids. This is a very good museum to take kids.

After a long tax season for my friends, we all went to have a beer at Ritual Brewing Company. This joint is in a industrial building - it looks like they activities and music. They were advertising Yoga and Beer day. This was a fun place to hang and chill.

We enjoyed our visit to Escape Craft Brewery. This was one of four Redlands breweries that we visited in one day recently. They are all relatively close together.
And Escape was definitely the place that felt like a nice local pub. I was comfortable here from the minute I arrived. It is a bit funky and that adds to the charm.
I will be absolutely be back.

We spent a pleasant hour touring the several rooms of this quaint glass museum, located in well-maintained victorian Redlands house. The curator (Joann) was exceptionally knowledgeable, and gave us the intimate details of these treasures of days gone by. Most of the display is American-made glass; these manufacturers had almost all gone out of business by the turn of the millennium. There's also an old-glass gift shop in the back.

Formerly known as Pharaoh's Lost Kingdom
So, less than a week ago we decided to surprise our kids with a trip to the waterpark. We had planned on going to the cove in riverside but it was closed. So we ended up at Splash Kingdom. $10 for parking, thought that was crappy considering we have to pay to get into the waterpark but ok. We parked and got our stuff and headed inside. We got our tickets. That day they were offering a "deal" of $24 for the waterpark, a food tix (hotdog, chips, drink), and an hour trampoline. So not bad. We head inside the park and find the lockers, easy and then off to change. The changing rooms and bathrooms were nasty. Smelled like urine horribly. I'm not sure why it was that bad. The park as we walked around looked clean enough, a bit run down in certain areas, needs some upgrades. Lots of shade, and chairs, loungers. The wave pool was cool for my 5 year old. You can rent rafts for their ridiculous prices but you don't need it. There are not enough lifeguards in my opinion at a place like this. The ones that were working seemed annoyed and wanted to leave as soon as possible. The meal ticket was a 2 day old hotdog, some chips, and the smallest drink possible. I wouldn't even give my kid a drink that small. So if they offer a lunch ticket, I'd decline if I was you and maybe opt for a better choice if there is one. Now for the "fun" part. Both of my kids caught hand mouth and foot disease from this waterpark. We definitely won't be coming back to splash kingdom. We will opt for the cove or do something else.
