Hi Friends and Neighbors!
We’ll be enjoying the weekend at a slightly cooler cool-er 90 degrees – the perfect weather for getting out and enjoying what the Inland Empire has to offer.
Love the water? Check out some antique boats in Big Bear or try making your own in Temecula. If you’re uninspired for what to throw on the grill, get in the car and check out some craft beers and enjoy sausage and other foods in Cherry Valley. Support military families and take a run, either by yourself or with the whole family, around the lake in Big Bear.
Whatever you decide to do, don’t forget your camera to capture the memories!
