A Taste of San Bernardino, California

did you know?

  1. San Bernardino is a city located in the Riverside-San Bernardino metropolitan area, at times referred to as the Inland Empire. As one of the anchor cities of the Inland Empire the city spans 81 square miles on the floor of the San Bernardino Valley with a population of 209,924 as of the 2010 census.

  2. Though much of the housing stock in San Bernardino is, on average, older than that of the surrounding region, new homes continue to be built in different parts of the city, with the bulk rising in the Verdemont area on the north side. Notable attractions in San Bernardino include the Fox Performing Arts Center, the California Theatre, the Robert V. Fullerton Museum of Art, Route 66-McDonald's Museum, the Santa Fe Rail Road Museum - housing exhibits and artifacts of local history, and the Arrowhead Springs Resort and Hotel.

  3. Government, retail, and service industries dominate the economy of the City of San Bernardino. From 1998 to 2004, San Bernardino's economy grew by 26,217 jobs, a 37% increase, to 97,139. Government was both the largest and the fastest-growing employment sector, reaching close to 20,000 jobs in 2004. Other significant sectors were retail (16,000 jobs) and education (13,200 jobs).

  4. San Bernardino hosts several major events annually, including: Route 66 Rendez-vous, a four-day celebration of America's "Mother Road" that is held in downtown San Bernardino each September; the Berdoo Bikes & Blues Rendezvous, held in the Spring; the National Orange Show festival, a citrus exposition founded in 1911 and also held in the Spring; and, the Western Regional Little League Championships held each August.

  5. January snowfall in San Bernardino with Shandin Hills in the background.San Bernardino features a somewhat cooler version of a Mediterranean climate with cool to chilly winters (frost is common during this time of the year) and hot, dry summers. Relative to other areas in Southern California, winters are colder with frost and with chilly to cold morning temperatures common. As well, the particularly arid climate during the summer prevents tropospheric clouds from forming, meaning temperatures rise to what is considered Class Orange by the scientists at NOAA. Summer is also a lot warmer with the highest recorded summer temperature at 117 F in 1971. In the winter, snow flurries occur upon occasion. San Bernardino gets an average of 16 inches of rain, hail, or light snow showers each year. Arrowhead Springs, San Bernardino's northern-most neighborhood, gets snow, heavily at times due to its elevation of about 3,000 feet above sea level.
