Free or Cheap Things to do in the Inland Empire!

Here is a list and links to things to do in the Inland Empire. Some Free but most have a nominal fee.

Moreno Valley ~
Parks and Rec dept. will be putting on a movie! Every Thursday starting at dusk. This will be lots of fun for the kids! Take a blanket, picnic dinner & they'll have a blast! They say that space is limited so I would get there early if  you want a seat! NO umbrellas, popups or alcohol allowed.
Conference and Recreation Center
14075 Frederick Street
Moreno Valley

Harkins Theatre has a very inexpensive pack of movies to attend for $4.50. They have early show times which is my only grunt about it, but how can you pass up 10 different movies for $4.50. Tickets went on sale in April. I'd run and grab some if your interested!

Jurupa ~
The Cove. A local water park. This is awesome and my TOP thing to do in Riverside. Prices for a season pass are $60 for non jurupa residences and $48.00 for Jurupa residences. Prices do go down from there depending on height of child.  The Cove opens for the season on May 26th.

Lois Rubidoux Nature Center. A fun local nature center that occasionally has activities for usually under $5.00, pp. some of the past have been a butterfly day, basket weaving, jewelry making.  They have trails that lead down and around a cute little stream. A beautiful place to have a family day. Nice area for a picnic also.

Now our favorite is camping and The Cove. We will be sure to do this right when summer starts!  I hope this has been helpful and if you know of something low cost to do in Southern California PLEASE let me know and I can post it to that blog page.   Enjoy your summer and kiss your kiddos!
