Long before the Spanish led expeditions across the land, or Mexicans and Americans fought for it, Southern California belonged to tribes like the Serrano, Chumash, Tongva, or, as with the city now known as Redlands, the Morongo and Aguas Calientes tribes of the Cahuilla people. In the 1770’s as the explorations of Pedro Fages and Francisco Garcés crossed the area now occupied by Redlands, California, their goal of extending Catholic influence and dominion of the Spanish crown to the indigenous people was apparent. Successful though they were, in 1822 Mexico triumphed in the War of Independence and the land previously claimed by Spain was ceded to the Mexican Government. The first Anglo settlers arrived to the area in 1851 when several hundred Mormon pioneers purchased the Rancho San Bernardino and established a prosperous farming community. In 1865, Redlands received its first settler, a sheepherder who lived in a hut at the corner of present-day Cajon Street and Cypress Avenue. By 1874, the now small settlement received its first teacher, George W. Beattie.
Though the history of Redlands was seemingly slow going compared to the boomtown years experienced by neighboring municipalities, the city today is a culturally diverse and vibrant home to nearly 70,000 residents. When it comes to having fun in the SoCal sun, some of the best things to do in Redlands include visiting Splash Kingdom Waterpark, the San Bernardino County Museum, Lincoln Memorial Shrine, Museum of Redlands, the Historical Glass Museum, Box Springs Mountain, Kimberly Crest, Prospect Park, Sylvan park, the San Timoteo Nature Sanctuary, Smiley Park, Mill Creek Zanja, Big Air Trampoline Park, El Dorado Ranch Park, Caroline Park, Barton Villa, the Yucaipa Adobe Museum, San Timoteo Canyon Schoolhouse, or Zanja Peak.
