Riverside, California

BACKSTORY: Riverside gets a bit of a bad rap; typically when you mention it people roll their eyes. However, there really are a number of gems worth seeing in this city approximately 60 miles east of Los Angeles, such as...The Mission Inn, Mount Rubidoux, The University of California, Riverside, and the Fox Performing Arts Center. The Inn alone is worth the trip.
