Loma Linda University Medical Center is located in a vast metropolitan area east of Los Angeles known as the Inland Empire. It is considered to be the crossroads of Southern California. The beaches of Newport, Laguna, and Malibu are only 60 to 90 minutes to the west, offering swimming, kayaking, sailing, surfing among other watersports. Also 60 minutes to the west is downtown Los Angeles, with its top-quality restaurants, world-renowned museums, opera, theater, and other cultural opportunities. Just 90 minutes south is San Diego.

Those who enjoy snow skiing have easy access to the San Bernardino Mountains, only 45 to 60 minutes to the north. During the spring, summer, and fall seasons, these forested mountains also provide first-rate hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, fishing, and rock climbing. Water-skiing and sailing are also an option at nearby Lake Arrowhead, Big Bear Lake, and Lake Perris.

The golf courses, shopping, and spas of Palm Springs are a 60-minute drive to the east. World-class Mammoth Mountain resort is a six-hour drive to the north.

The area around Loma Linda is a mountain biker’s paradise. Miles of challenging trails are found in the unpopulated hills above the city of Loma Linda, within five minutes of the Medical Center. Other excellent mountain bike-riding areas can be found throughout the San Bernardino Mountain range a few miles to the north.

Winters are clear and cool with spectacular views of snow-covered Mt. Baldy, Mt. San Bernardino, Mt. San Gorgonio, and Mt. San Jacinto. Temperatures rarely dip below 60o F on winter days. Summers are hot and dry, with temperatures ranging from 80o to 100o F on average.
