Riverside Convention Bureau "Riverside is the California people dream about. The tan stones of ancient Spanish architecture warming in the California sun. Towering mountains serving as a backdrop to palm-lined avenues and Victorian mansions and citrus groves fill the air with the sweet smell of orange blossoms. Whether experiencing a stroll through the colorful antique row, enjoying the Festival of Lights, or basking in the exciting ambiance of the downtown village, there's always something happening in Riverside. World-class eateries, art museums and the performing arts await you in the village. Great golf courses, an aviation museum and the State Citrus Historic Park are a short drive from downtown and Southern California's major attractions are within easy reach of this prime location."
