“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
Downtown Riverside is the stomping ground of hipsters, white collars, and homeless alike. During the week, Main Street bustles with local business owners, attorneys, and other court professionals out to grab a bite at famed sandwich shop Simple Simon's. Museums offer free entry during the monthly Art Walk, and downtown goes all out for the annual lighting of the Mission Inn Christmas tree, complete with ice skating and a nightly farmer's market. Back to the Grind offers coffee, conversation, and a plentiful book collection.
