About Inland Empire

San Bernardino offers consistently pleasant weather and an abundance of outdoor activities. Within a short drive from the school, students can enjoy mountains, deserts, and the attractions in Los Angeles or Mexico. Surfing, water sports, tennis, golf, jogging, mountain biking, and many other outdoor activities are supported by our warm climate.

San Bernardino's rich cultural history was shaped by Spanish missionaries, Native Americans, Mexicans, and Mormons. Today, students take in art and cultural experiences at Theatrical Arts International, home to Broadway plays and the San Bernardino Symphony Orchestra. The city has 40 parks and the region is home to growing companies including Kaiser Permanents, Watson Pharmaceuticals, and Wells Fargo Home Mortgage.

As the one of the last stops along Route 66, San Bernardino holds an annual four-day Route 66 Rendezvous celebration featuring vintage cars, exhibits, vendors, food, and live entertainment.

Visitors seek out The Arrowhead, a local landmark that's a centuries-old symbol that local Indians believed pointed the way to hot healing mineral springs. The original McDonald's Brothers Hamburger stand also attracts sightseers—the stand has been turned into a museum honoring the famous burger.

Sports enthusiasts follow the Inland Empire 66ers baseball team and cheer on the yearly Little League regional playoffs. The city also has the largest sanctioned Soap Box Derby event on the west coast.
