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.
