Jacks toys

Supporting small business within the community is what it’s all about! Jax Toys has a great selection and wide variety of toys. You can find toys that fit all price points, or they can order whatever you might want.

Indoor Playground

Rylan absolutely loves this place! It is super clean and well-staffed. You can have a party or go for the day. There is a playground for little ones. And when they grow, there is a big park. Even dads get to play with their kiddos!

Redlands Night Market

Rylan loves the ponies, bouncy houses, and cruising beautiful State Street at the Redlands' Night Market. She can run amuck in a safe, contained, and well-lit area. Plus, I don't have to worry about cars!

Helpful Hints from Evan Dietrich of State Farm Insurance

Ask your insurance provider these 5 questions:

  1. Does my homeowner's or renter's policy cover earthquake damage?
  2. What is “full coverage” auto insurance?
  3. How does remodeling my home affect my insurance policy?
  4. Who are my life insurance beneficiaries again?
  5. Why do I need to use an insurance agent? Can’t I just go online and do it myself?
