Best Places to Shop in Riverside – San Bernardino

The Inland Empire, also known as the Riverside – San Bernardino Metropolitan Area is a huge area, spanning along the borders of LA and Orange County. The Inland Empire encompasses many cities, which could only mean one thing – More places to shop!

As you begin your shopping excursion through Riverside and parts beyond, you’ll want to make your first stop at The Galleria at Tyler in Riverside. The Galleria at Tyler is one of Southern California’s top malls, and for good reason. The mall is home to Nordstrom, Forever 21, H&M, Sephora, and many more of your favorite stores. And while you’re in Riverside, take a stroll through Riverside Plaza, located in the heart of Downtown Riverside. The shopping area offers a small collection of stores and restaurants worthy of a look.

Next, make your way southwest of Riverside to the city of Corona where you’ll find the Shops at Dos Lagos. This open-air mall is home to top brands like Anthropologie, Charlotte Russe and bebe. Corona is also home to the Crossings at Corona along I-15, where you’ll find a great selection of big-box retailers such as Cost Plus, Kohl’s, Marshall’s, Michael’s, Ross, Sports Authority, and Target.

Further south in the city of Temecula is where you’ll find two more shopping areas worth exploring. The Promenade Temecula, a nice neighborhood mall featuring stores like Abercrombie & Fitch, Ann Taylor LOFT, Charlotte Russe, Forever 21, Sephora, and Macy’s. And one of our favorite places to stroll, Old Town Temecula, which always seems to be adding more shops, galleries and restaurants every time we visit. Old Town Temecula has a feel that is a little bit wine country mixed with a little bit western town.

Rounding out the Inland Empire mall list are the Inland Center Mall in San Bernardino along the 215 Freeway. The mall is home to more than 100 stores and restaurants including Macy’s and Forever 21. The Moreno Valley Mall located East of Riverside along the 60, a traditional neighborhood mall. The Mall of Victor Valley located off the I-15 in Victorville. A great place to stop if you find yourself headed toward Vegas and forgot your suitcase. And the Ontario Mills Mall in Ontario, a bargain hunter’s paradise with a variety of popular outlets and a big selection of regular store brands. Ontario Mills is located at I-10 and I-15.
