The mission inn:Beautiful😍 The Mission Inn, now known as The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa, is a historic landmark hotel in downtown Riverside, California. Although a composite of many architectural styles, it is generally considered the largest Mission Revival Style building in the United States. Mission Inn Hotel & Spa is a member of Historic Hotels of America, the official program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.[3] Amazing Sunday brunch. Eclectic architecture and really cool history. Make a day out of it and explore downtown Riverside as well. A fantastic running trail. They hold Easter mass up here as well. Beautiful place to watch the sunset or sunrise! This is the hotel I think of when I hear the Eagles' Hotel California. It's a maze of interesting stairways and courtyards. They really go all out for Christmas. It's beautiful! Rose Garden: Yellow Rose and White Gazebo Beautiful view of Riverside from the top of Mt. Rubidoux Went back to Mt Rubidoux this past weekend to get a better photo then the last time I went here this time I got some color in the sky. This is a great hike with some stunning views of the city and with the peace Bridge and a big cross sitting at the top of the mountain

Actually, it's in downtown Riverside, California. The city usually gets a bad reputation; of course, it's hard to live up to glamorous neighbors like Los Angeles, San Diego, and Orange County. And historically, it hasn't always been that nice.
But in reality, the old downtown area is quite charming and today it's a lovely place to spend the day. This was snapped from the rooftop of the Mission Inn, a glamorous historic hotel done in the style of old Spanish missions. That's why it looks like it could be a building in Spain!
There are also photography galleries, museums, and lots of places to eat, drink, and shop. The cross at the very top of Mt.
