One of the most historical towns in California is Riverside, San Bernardino. It was the home of the Native Americans thousands of years ago. Today, it features a lot of structures that are of Victorian architecture. The entire place is teeming with plenty of choices for food and dining, arts and culture. However, there are also wide varieties of options if you want to start a healthy living in Riverside.
1. San Bernardino National Forest. It is 10,000 feet above seal level, which then provides you of the most beautiful view of the mountains. There are also a number of mountain lakes, where you can fish, swim, kayak, or boat. Besides being a good camping area, it is more known for its hiking trail. You will never get to feel the exhaustion, though, because of the wondrous attractions you will see along the way.
2. Big Bear Mountain Resorts. This is found right inside the national forest. It is very popular during the winter season, where daredevils would troop to its slopes to try skiing and even snowboarding. It is a freestyle park, and the only one in Riverside. This means that you are free to do whatever it is in the ski resort. This is an ideal venue if you want to flex those muscles even in the colder months.
3. Silverwood Lake State Recreation Area. This reservoir has been a favorite spot for families who want to set-up picnics or fish, so they can catch trouts, bluegills, and bass. The climb toward this area is not at all comforting, but it will surely exercise your feet and your thighs.
4. Rim Nordic. This is in demand all year round. When the sun is high, the trails are favorites for bikers, campers, and hikers. During winter, there will be countless of people who will get themselves on not only snowshoeing but also skiing.
5. Lake Arrowhead. This is highly similar to Rim Nordic. Aside from the biking and hiking trails around it, the lake is also very famous for sailing. The slopes then transform themselves into venues for downhill and cross country skiing.
6. Glen Ivy Hot Spring. Rejuvenate yourself with the warm waters of the hot springs of Glen Ivy. You can also look forward to other good body treatments such as massage, mud and red clay bath, and sauna.
7. Forest Falls route. This is one of the most well-loved biking routes because of the challenges it presents. You will have to beat the 3,000 feet elevation before you can glide down for almost 30 minutes.
8. High Adventure. Learn to enjoy Riverside and San Bernardino right up in the area. Hang- and paragliding is definitely not for the scaredy-cats, but it’s something that’s worth trying to. You will understand more about control, eye-and-body-coordination, not to mention why this California town is an excellent getaway for tourists and locals.
9. Golf. San Bernardino is also well-known for its vast greens, where you can enjoy some great tee time with friends or alone.
10. Glen Helen Regional Park. Spend some time alone with nature. There are a lot of camping grounds available, and one of these is Glen Helen. It welcomes tent users, as well as RV or trailer owners.
