      Colton CA - A city for Everyone!
      I have lived in Colton, CA my entire life. There is a new aspect that I seem to experience on a regular basis that adds to the magic of the city. Located only an hour's drive from Los Angeles, Colton is located in the Inland Empire region of San Bernardino County, CA. With a population of just over 50,000, Colton contains plenty of amenities and attractions while maintaining that ‘small town feel' that I love. Just remember to be safe; most of us know that California does indeed have its crime areas, so just make sure to keep an eye on the little ones and yourself as well!

      Getting bored in Colton is impossible! Whether you are golfing at Colton Golf Club under the bright sunshine, or getting your groove on under the moon at Colton Swap Meet, Colton, CA has an attraction for everyone, anytime of the day.

      If you want to celebrate a birthday or just want to have a fun day, visit Fiesta Village Family Fun Park. This park has it all! Water rides, batting cages, amusement park rides, miniature gold rides, laser tag, and a race track only scratch the surface of this intensely popular attraction in Colton, CA.

      For the very rare rainy day in Colton, check out the San Bernardino Museum. This is a great place to take the family for an afternoon inside. The museum contains three floors of exhibits, an exploration station, an education center, and native plant and cactus gardens, and citrus groves-symbolizing a celebration and source of reference for the great southwestern culture that colors the region.

      With many restaurants and hotels to eat and rest, you can also relax in the middle of the Southern California fast life. If you are in the mood for one of Colton's' Mexican restaurants, Maria's Café is the place to satisfy your craving for authentic Mexican cuisine. At the end of the day, fall asleep in one of Colton's many hotels. You see, Colton CA has something for everyone- no matter who you are or what you enjoy!
