Loma Linda, CA Travel, Photos Information and News

Loma Linda or Mound City as it was once known, is located in San Bernardino County and has recognized neighbors, Redlands and San Bernardino. From many of the city's locations you can look to the San
Bernardino mountains nearby where vacationers go to enjoy skiing, water skiing, snowboarding, and Big Bear Lake and Arrowhead. Other views include the San Jacinto mountains with Idyllywild mountain escape, or Palm Desert on the other side of the mountain, a one hour drive east in the Cochella Valley Basin.

Life is charming in Loma Linda where you'll see locals strolling along tree lined streets. They like to reflect and consider their lifestyle--decidedly cosmopolitan, thanks to the fame of Loma Linda University (LLU) Medical Center, attracting visitors from around the world. Some are patients, others are students, some come to teach, heal or perform research.

Highlights for visitors include the Sunday morning Farmers Market that starts at 8 a.m. to Noon. Location: Barton Frontage Road between Loma Linda Drive and Benton Street, across from Stater Brother's Shopping Center.

Like so much of Inland Empire that once served as what was considered a healthy vacation resort around the turn of the 20th century, the Linda Loma Resort property was acquired by The Seventh-day Adventist Church and was converted it into the Loma Linda Sanitarium in 1905. The Sanitarium eventually became a full service medical facility and medical college, the forerunners of the Loma Linda University and Medical Center.

The Loma Linda University Medical Center and Children's Hospital contain the largest neonatal intensive care unit in California, the Proton Accelerator Cancer treatment Center and the infant heart and multiple organ transplant center. Over 900 physicians are on the University and Medical Center staff.

This type of medical tourism offers a very unique flavor to a city that enjoys some of the highest incomes and best educated residents in San Bernardino County, 60 miles east of Los Angeles.

The City includes nine public parks, lectures and musical programs. Nearby Redlands Bowl offers great entertainment, and San Bernardino County Museum nearby features Art, History, Natural History, Geology and Archaeology.
