Riverside County is Calling

Riverside County is Calling

By Margaret Flores
May 21, 2019

The fourth most populous county in California, Riverside County spans from the greater Los Angeles area to the Arizona border, covering a diverse geographic area with varying climates.   While the region is known for its famous Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals—which attract hundreds of thousands of people each year—there are many more reasons to visit. With mountains, fertile valleys, rivers, and nearby beaches, the county offers natural diversity that few other places can match.

In fact, most of Joshua Tree National Park is located in Riverside County, serving as a desert playground for outdoor enthusiasts seeking to hike, bike, rock climb, or camp. The Dos Palmas Preserve is another unique desert sanctuary complete with lush wetlands, swaying fan palms, and an array of animal species. The Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument, San Bernardino National Forest, and Sand to Snow National Monument are also waiting to be explored.

Visitors desiring a more pampered experience often head to one of the resort cities in Riverside County—such as Indian Wells, Rancho Mirage, Desert Hot Springs, or the iconic Palm Springs—which boast haute hotels, world-class eateries, luxe spas, and high-end shopping destinations.

In addition, Temecula Valley Wine Country is a short drive away from most Riverside County locales, inviting visitors to savor award-winning wines in laid-back yet elegant environs. Due to the varied terroir, the region produces more than 50 varietals, which can be sampled in hundreds of tasting rooms throughout the valley. The yearly Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival is another big attraction for visitors, featuring hot-air balloons, concerts, scrumptious bites, and of course, plenty of vino (and beer).

All of these notable events and attractions—combined with a rich cultural heritage and frontier history—make Riverside County a great place to visit, and it’s no wonder millions head to the region year after year.
