Get in

By car: The primary Access to Loma Linda is by car off the interstate 10 freeway. By plane: The closest airport is Ontario international airport (ONT), from here take the 10 freeway east until just after the 215 interchange. Freeway exits include, Waterman South, Waterman North, Anderson, and Mountain view ave. Airport Shuttle: Airport shuttles are available from [ONT]from super shuttle and prime time shuttles.

Get around

By far the best way to get around is by car, the city is built and equipped for vehicles primarily. If traveling by car be aware that the intersections of; Anderson and Redlands Blvd., Anderson and Barton, Mt. View and Barton, Mt. view and Redlands Blvd. all have photo ticket equipment, which will ticket you if you run a Red light.


See

Loma Linda is a University town, home to the aptly named Loma Linda University [1]. As such one of the best sights on campus is the University and Medical Center. Additionally almost 40% of the city are Seventh Day Adventist by religion. The church in Loma Linda is one of the largest Seventh Day Adventist Churches in the World. Two almost identical services are held every Saturday from 8:30-10:00 and 11:00-12:30.

Do

Loma Linda in Spanish means "Hill Beautiful" and as such Loma Linda's south hills provide a great backdrop for mountain biking or hiking. The hills are often dry with low lying brush surrounding the trails so care must be taken to avoid any fires. In the summer the hills can be hot and less than a desirable destination. Exercise is typically important to Loma Linda residents and you will see many joggers on the streets at all times of the day and night. Hulda Crooks park, which is named after an adventurous female hiker who hiked challenging mountains into her old age, provides a respite from the rest of the city. Hulda Crooks park is approx. 3 acres of grass with playground equipment in the south of Loma Linda.

Buy

Most shopping should be done in the city's of either Redlands or San Bernardino. In Redlands Citrus plaza as well as State street provide good shopping. In San Bernardino the Inland Center mall is best suited for shopping. Carousel mall is to be avoided, because of reports of frequent gang activity.

Eat

Loma Linda is packed with restaurants. Hospitality lane (just out side of loma linda on the north) provides a lot of large chain sit down eating establishments, Claim Jumper, El torrito, Chili's, Mimi's Cafe, and many more. One place of note is Lotis Garden on western Hospitality lane, it has exceptionally good Chinese and Cantonese cuisine, with a fancy sit down atmosphere, lots of vegetarian options for relatively low prices (most meals under $15).

Drink

Loma Linda is an almost entirely dry city. At the time of writing there appear to be very few establishments in Loma Linda that can distribute alcohol, as the city council chooses not to approve most permits. Stater Bros. in Loma Linda does sell alcohol.

Sleep

The Loma Linda hotel was recently renovated and provides nice rooms at reasonable rates. For a more upscale stay the Hilton on hospitality lane provides nicer accomidations
