I have lived here my whole life (18 years now). The opened up a new mall called Mountain Grove which is located right next to Citrus Plaza. They both now have everything that you would ever need to go shopping, which has a movie theater as well. Schools in the area are great and very safe. It is pretty affordable leaving here. Many great and healthy restaurants to get food and pretty good grocery stores. Traffic can be pretty busy, but usually just work traffic. Job opportunities are high. The nightlife is amazing! Many bars can be found downtown.
My experience thus far with living with Redlands has been great! I've lived here all since I was younger and have attended Redlands schools throughout the entire time of my K-12 education. I really like Redlands due to the fact the the community here is so close and tied together. From growing up playing soccer and football for the high school as well, anytime the two schools(Redlands HS and Redlands East Valley HS) would play each other for bragging rights the whole city gets involved and makes things fun. Also, you can never forget about Market Night at Downtown Redlands which many people gather and buy/check out local small businesses that set up stations selling homemade products. I would like to see the Redlands Mall reopen because back as a kid it brought so many memories and it could also bring more revenue to the city itself.
