Redlands Reviews

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.

Redlands is a beautiful and historic town located in the heart of the Inland Empire. This city has a small town vibe, and features several breath taking parks such as Prospect park, a well known spot for its outdoor theater which is very active during the summer months. Redlands, steeped in history, also features a Lincoln Shrine, and a beautiful library both placed next to an outdoor amphitheater which provides local live entertainment for free! The architecture is mostly that of the late 1800's-early 1900's, so its perfect for the "Sunday driver" . This town is perfect for anyone from the single college student, to the full family, as there is plenty of activities for all ages!
Redlands has a lot to offer. The old downtown district is full of great shopping and places with unique healthy cuisine that attracts younger crowds from the local university. New areas such as Citrus Plaza and Mountain Grove offer some of the best shopping and outlet stores. Housing is fairly priced, but there are still some areas of Redlands that need improvement. While Redlands has more million dollar neighborhoods and communities (such as Smiley Heights), then it's neighboring city, San Bernardino, it still has areas that look and feel like they are straight from the inner cities of L.A. Overall Redlands is a diverse city with lots of community engagement and as it is often called, "the city of Churches" there are dozens of churches in just as many denominations to choose from.
