Rialto, CA: The Best Pizza In Southern California

I have traveled to Rialto five times. One of the main attractions this quaint city boasts is the Wigwam Motel. In addition to its value for being rare, the motel is also located on the historic Route 66. Guests will enjoy this clean and fun motel styled true to its name.

Rialto is rich in history, believed to have been an area inhabited by Native American tribes over 500 years ago. After a devastating fire many years ago, much of the city has been rebuilt and now hosts many restaurants, shopping venues and some entertainment. One of the best restaurants in Rialto and perhaps the best (in my opinion) pizza restaurant in all of the greater Los Angeles area is Brother's Pizza. Brother's pizzas are as good as almost any authentic pizza found in New York City, and definitely worth the two hour drive!

The economy in Rialto is much like the rest of California: broken. Homes are still fairly expensive, jobs are few and commuting is tedious with congested heavy traffic. Residents are friendly and neighborhoods are clean and close-knit. This city is a great place to visit, but not to live in.
