Things to do in RIVERSIDE with kids

Riverside, California…one of the top family destinations in Southern California! (And one you visit, you’ll see why!)

Riverside has plenty of fun things to do with the family. Museums? Check! Art galleries? Check! Fun park? Yes please!

You can uncover over 125 years of rich history at the Mission Inn Museum, or pay tribute to our heroes at the March Field Air Museum.

Relax in 1,550 acres of nature at the Sycamore Canyon Wilderness Park, or explore the unique citrus heritage at the California Citrus State Historic Park

And the fun park? Castle Park of course!

Then, if you have checked ALL those boxes, just enjoy the atmosphere of the Main Street Riverside Promenade!
