Last week we listed & sold a triplex in Rubidoux, a sleepy suburb of Riverside. The old building we sold was only a few hundred yards from Rubidoux Flabob Airport, the tiny local airstrip that boasts the Flabob Cafe and that strange biplane installation in front of it…
Rubidoux is bleak. Its Rubidoux Drive-In Theatre is one of the only two drive-ins still-operational in Southern California. Here’s “Soo 54”, Business Car 'Mt. Rubidoux' from “The Orange Empire Railway Museum”

Moving to Riverside -
In the last few months, I’ve been driving every day about 25 miles away to Riverside, where we just opened our new Champion Company office. For some reason, I never bothered to get acquainted with this charming city before. As I get to drive around the city now, I am delighted to discover its many old-fashioned, beautiful neighborhoods. In the near future, I will be adding many local sites to describe Riverside’s appeal.
Two weeks ago, Riverside was named “one of America's best places to live, work, and play” in the mid-sized city category, and together with San Diego, San Jose, Santa Rosa and Ventura, one of five in California. Here is a City of Riverside Pictorial .
Here are some Local attractions: The very first Naval Orange tree that was brought to California in 1870 from Brazil, and which started the whole citrus industry in the state, is still standing at the corner of Arlington and Magnolia Avenues, one block away from our office. The magnificent historic Mission Inn in downtown Riverside, a few blocks away from our office!
