The Redlands Visitor Center has provided a much needed “hub” for
businesses both downtown and Redlands in general. It provides a welcoming space, with Redlands
promotional merchandise “shopportunities” as well maps, tours, and information (all dispensed by
a charming local host!) that gives our town every chance to showcase it’s many attributes. It’s
a much needed space that allows businesses of all kinds to showcase themselves in ways that are
meaningful, and profitable, to them in a non-competitive atmosphere that is also geared for
promotion. It also contributes an accessible family space where young families can give their
children a quiet play, feeding, and changing space, as well as a public restroom facility for
young and old alike.
As a resident, the Redlands Visitor Center has personally provided me
with: a meeting spot with friends, gift ideas for friends and family at Christmas and other
occasions, participation in a promotional event for a local resident, and a volunteer
opportunity to share my knowledgeand love of Redlands to visitors and locals alike. It is a gem
located in the heart of our city that shines over the entire town.
