Nothing’s as beautiful as your mom, but here are a few places that come close. Don’t forget your camera!
The Huntington Gardens in San Marino: With 12 gardens and 15,000 plant varieties, you probably won’t see everything in one day. It just gives you an excuse to come back!
Etiwanda Falls in Rancho Cucamonga: A moderate hike that culminates with a relaxing waterfall.
Mt. San Jacinto State Park: Accessible via the Palm Spring Aerial Tramway, where you can enjoy hiking, dining, and scenic views.
The Mission Inn in Riverside: Enjoy brunch or dinner, then take in the gorgeous architecture!
Mount Palomar Winery in Temecula: Do we need to state the obvious? WINE.
Boulder Bay Park in Big Bear: You really can’t go wrong anywhere in Big Bear, but the views here are especially spectacular.
Hidden Valley Nature Preserve: Take Mom on a horseback ride through the bamboo tunnels of the Santa Ana Riverbed with S&D Horseback Riding!
