4 Reasons to Call the Inland Empire Home
If your idea of the perfect community for your next home is one surrounded by natural beauty yet close to vibrant, interesting cities, California’s Inland Empire checks all the boxes. Pardee Homes provides easy access to Inland Empire’s cities like Redlands, Palm Springs, Riverside, Temecula and more. Here are a few reasons you’ll want to call the Inland Empire home.
Wind down, wine down.
Wine lovers, take heart. Some of the best in California wines is grown in the Temecula Valley. In and around Temecula, you’ll find more than 30 wineries with varietals to suit any taste. Many offer sip-at-home options so you can support local growers while winding down on your Pardee home’s patio.
Foodies looking to source locally grown fruits and vegies need look no further than the many nearby farms and farmers markets in the Inland Empire. Originally known as the Orange Empire for its abundant orange crops, the Inland Empire’s temperate weather and rich soils produce apricots, peaches, passion fruit, squash, tomatoes, carrots and more.
With dozens of farmer’s markets in the region, you can try homegrown, organic fare from different markets throughout the growing season. Riverside Farmer’s Market, traditionally rated among the top in the Inland Empire, opens June 17.
The mountains are calling.
Who needs to head to the Alps for fresh mountain air, when the “Alps of Southern California” are just minutes from your Inland Empire home? Lake Arrowhead in the San Bernadino Mountains is an outdoor person’s delight, with access to hiking, snow skiing, water skiing, snowboarding and more. Big Bear Lake, at a 6,752-ft. elevation, also offers mountain hiking and biking in the San Bernadino National Forest as well as winter mountain sports.
A connection to the past.
Much of the charm of the Inland Empire is its connection to its roots. History runs deep here, making it easy to celebrate the region’s past while enjoying all the modern conveniences of your Atwell lifestyle.
A century ago, the city of Redlands was known as “The City of Millionaires” and later as “The City of Beautiful Homes.” Its architecture makes for an awe-inspiring stroll into days gone by. Try a solitary walking tour of State Street to see historic buildings like the A.K. Smiley Public Library, or drive through the Smiley Neighborhood for a glimpse at turn-of-the-century homes. Not up for walking? Opt for one of Redlands’ digital tours from the comfort of your living room.
