Perhaps you are in Riverside for an employment opportunity, but you are looking for things to do while you are here. Or maybe you are new in town, having moved in recently, and you want to learn more about the city. Regardless of how you got here, Riverside has a lot to offer both residents and visitors. Here is our list of the 12 top-rated attractions that you should be sure to check out.
1. Riverside Food Lab
No visit to Riverside would be complete without stopping at the Riverside Food Lab. Located right next to the Fox Performing Arts Center, you can make a great night of dinner and a show. Whether you are looking for a pizza, tacos, ice cream, or an adult beverage, you can find it at Riverside Food Lab. Take your work lunch from Riverside Food Lab, just a few blocks from your TailoredSpace office.
2. March Field Air Museum
If you’re a fan of airplanes, history, or museums (and even if you aren’t), the March Field Air Museum is a stop that you should put near the top of your list. Featuring more than 70 aircraft spanning over 100 years of aviation history, the March Field Air Museum helps tell aviation’s story from its early days through modern times. And while you are at the March Field Air Museum you may want to hop to the other side of the interstate and visit the Riverside National Cemetery, located on land donated by the March Field Air Base.
3. Van Buren Drive-In Theater
The Van Buren Drive-In Theater is one of the few operating drive-in theaters in the nation. It is a popular destination for cinephiles when it shows movies and hosts a swap meet throughout the week. You can meet some fun and exciting people at the swap meets, just like you can in the common areas of TailoredSpace when you get a cup of coffee.
