From the peaks of the San Bernardino mountains to the rolling vineyards of Temecula wine country, the Inland Empire offers a quiet respite from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

The Inland Empire (IE) is a southeastern region of California that is bordered by Los Angeles County to the west and San Diego County to the south. The area stretches as far north as the Victor Valley area and east to the San Jacinto Mountains, covering the San Bernardino Forest and Valley. The Inland Empire is a hidden gem and scenic getaway for LA locals, with its expansive wilderness and close geographic proximity to the bustling city.
The IE is home to the cities of Riverside, Chino Hills, Rancho Cucamonga, and Corona as well as smaller communities like Temecula, Menifee, and La Verne. With mountains bordering each side of the region, IE is a popular destination for hiking and camping. In fact, many couples select the Inland Empire for their wedding location due to its unobstructed mountain views and wide-open skies.
