lies immediately west of downtown Riverside,
California, and runs along the Santa Ana River near the historic Mount Rubidoux Memorial Park. The park contains the mountain, more than 160 acres of land, and 3.5 miles of trails, drawing trail runners, hikers, and nature lovers. The mountain's summit offers spectacular views of downtown Riverside and surrounding areas. Residents gather on the mountaintop for Easter sunrise service, an annual tradition since 1909.
Neighborhood thoroughfares Limonite Avenue and Mission Boulevard make it easy to reach houses
for rent in Rubidoux. You can get to local favorites for food, too, including family-owned Cardelli's Italian Market, serving great deli sandwiches such as hot corned beef and the Cardelli. Joyce Burger & Rice is a hangout for locals who love the Joyce Special, a classic quarter-pound burger, fries, and a drink. When morning hunger hits, try Joyce's breakfast burrito. At night, head for the Beach, a local sports bar where neighbors enjoy cold drinks and hot wings; DJs and bands provide music on weekends.
