Overview


For thousands of years, the people of Southern California have enjoyed the best things life has to offer, and that is especially true for the city of Yucaipa, located along traditional trade trails in the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains between the valley of San Bernardino, the mountains, and the desert. It was not only a historic gathering place, but also a home to the predecessors who lived in the village of Yu'kai'pat. This sun-kissed land is rich in natural resources, with plenty of water and vegetation that provides for people and wild animals alike. The bounty of the land provided the nickname "Breadbasket of Southern California" in the 1800s and the "Egg Basket" during the 20th century. The people of Yucaipa take pride in living in a real hometown with good schools, a college, and sports programs. Residents also see to the protection of their wildlife neighbors with a state park, a county regional park, 11 city parks, and a trails system for everyone to enjoy the great outdoors.
