Riverside, one of the fastest-growing cities in America, offers the amenities of a large city and the comfort of a college town. The city was named 2012 Intelligent Community of the Year for its use of technology. Some local attractions include:
Entertainment and shopping

Movie theatres, coffee shops, restaurants, and excellent shopping opportunities, Riverside has them all. Be sure to check out the Mission Inn, a magnificent landmark that has entertained eight U.S. presidents and countless celebrities.

Arts and culture

A symphony orchestra, an opera association, theatre companies, and civic choruses, all with openings for California Baptist University students to participate-are just some of the cultural highlights of Riverside. You'll also enjoy exhibits at the Riverside Art Museum and the California Museum of Photography.


Follow a winding lane 1,300 feet up to Mount Rubidoux, one of Riverside's most famous features for a panoramic view of the Inland Valley. Capped by a cross and peace tower, it has been the site of sunrise Easter services since 1909.
