Located 60 miles east of Los Angeles in the heart of Southern California and nestled at the base of the San Bernardino National Forest is the city of San Bernardino. Originally incorporated in 1854, it is the oldest anchor city of the Inland Empire and is the seat of the largest county in the United States. The rich history of the valley includes visits from Spanish missionaries, pioneers Jedediah Smith and Kit Carson, and Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush. Wyatt Earp was just a teenager when his family arrived here in 1864. Home to the National Orange Show and the famous natural landmark Arrowhead, the city also boasts a stretch of the popular Route 66.
