Just wanted to say thank you for all the great info. Meeting friends in Redlands on Saturday and have never been so needed a hotel, restaurants, and fun things to do. I appreciate all the suggestions the nice woman on the phone provided.

This is a GREAT site for both "locals" and visitors to find goods and services we actually want or need right here close to home--We use it all the time to "refind" our plumber (Al's Sewer Service), HVAC service (Burgeson's, of course!), Pest Control (Craig and Sons) and anyone else we might need! We love the community event support, too!

Ilene said on Sep 1, 2010
Love it! Love it! Love it! You read my mind, I was thinking “what can me and my daughter do for mommy & me time?” being a new Mom with no time I want to find things to do that are cheap and fun. I NEVER cared to look before so of coarse I didn’t know where to begin. You have a link for things to do in the area under the events area and I also see stuff that I can do too, this is USEFUL, great job, thank you J have a good week.

Lynn said on Jun 13, 2009
We are visiting Redlands from the Washington, D.C./Baltimore area. We took a night out without the kids and hit a few spots in downtown Redlands. Parking was easy and convenient. The girls enjoyed a cozy afternoon tea at The Eating Room; pizza, beer, and the hockey game at Romano's with the guys and then dessert, cheese and wine at Time in a Bottle. Second only to the food and atmosphere was the convenience of being able to walk from stores, to restaurants, to bars- all quickly and easily. A great evening out!
Terri said on Jun 3, 2009

Michelle said on Jun 1, 2009
What a great site! My husband and I have a three year-old and although we've lived in Redlands for a year, it was nice to see an actual list of things and activities we can do for her, mostly the information on child-friendly restaurants! And she loves the Smiley Library! Thank you for putting this all together for us!
Robin said on May 30, 2009
