A Perfect Metrolink Daycation: Riverside for the Holidays

Historic downtown Riverside is an easy Metrolink ride from Orange County.

A great destination at any time, Riverside shines especially bright during the Christmas holiday. As part of an annual tradition, the famous Mission Inn Hotel and Spa and the surrounding area will be transformed into a sparkling wonderland full of holiday lights and decoration, live entertainment and lots of goodies during the Festival of Lights from November 29 through December 31.

Over at the Fox Performing Arts Center, a vintage Spanish Colonial Revival theater transformed into a state-of-the-art venue, Disney Junior Holiday Live will be on tap for December 20.

It’s a known fact that having fun stimulates the appetite, so it’s wise to have a dining choice picked out in advance. Heroes Restaurant & Brewery offers food that the whole family will enjoy with large portions that encourage sharing.

These locations are part of our Riverside Metrolink Daycation sweepstakes.  Here's the whole prize package:

  • 4 Metrolink weekend tickets
  • 4 tickets to Disney Jr. Live @ Fox Theater
  • 4 Festival of Lights VIP ride passes & premium Santa photo package
