I live right near the Redlands area, and I looooooove it. There is a boutique in Redlands called Kissui, and a few months ago they had info for a holistic/natural mommy group. They sell carriers there, cloth diapers, etc. The library is beautiful, the parks are great, lots of orange orchards (yummy!). Farmers Market is on Thursday evenings
Personally, I do not care for the Highland/San Bernardino area. Esp. San Bernardino....there are more bad areas, then good areas, imo (crime, drugs and such).
There is also Loma Linda, and a small little section of Colton/Grand Terrace that is really nice, and it is just west (about 3-5 mins) of LLU.
About 20 mins away there is Oak Glen farms, and I pick my own strawberries, peachs, and such there, for really cheap.
If you have any other questions, ask away!
