Altura Credit Union

Need a break from the hot California sun? Seek respite at Altura Credit Union, home to one of Riverside’s most unexpected interior treasures. What appears an ordinary office building from the outside gives way to a breathtaking oasis inside. Designed by renowned architect Antoine Predock, Altura’s lobby features a 60-foot waterfall cascade, lush gardens, koi ponds, and suspended footbridges. Visitors delight at the contrast between the stark desert landscape outside and this indoor tropical rainforest. The best time to visit is mid-morning on a weekday, when the space is empty and quiet. Let your group wander freely and observe the thousands of plant species that make up this living work of art. Before heading back to your Party Bus Company Riverside charter bus, don’t forget to look up – Altura’s lobby features an open roof that floods the space with natural light.

Fox Historic Theatre

Step back in time at the Fox Historic Theatre, a 1930s movie palace restored to its original glory. As one of the few remaining Art Deco theaters in Southern California, the Fox gives visitors a glimpse of Riverside’s bygone era. Magnificent chandeliers, gilded columns, velvet curtains, and extravagant murals transport guests to Old Hollywood. Aside from the opulent décor, the intimate 800-seat theater hosts concerts, stand-up comedy, film screenings, and other performances in its main auditorium. Your group can also admire the Historic Theatre’s Spanish Courtyard and Grand Lobby, accessible even without a show ticket.

Citrus State Historic Park

Discover the beginnings of Riverside’s citrus industry at this quiet green space downtown. Though only five acres in size, Citrus State Historic Park packs a lot of agricultural history. The park centers around the Kinsley House, built in 1882 and now restored as a museum of the Riverside colony’s early citrus boom. Your group can tour the two-story Victorian mansion, furnished with antiques and artifacts from the late 1800s. Outside, stroll through citrus groves containing over 400 trees of historic importance – like the parent navel orange tree. Make sure to snap some photos in front of the striking bright orange trees before leaving. It’s a taste of Old Riverside that can’t be found anywhere else in town.

Castle Green

Hiding in plain sight in downtown Riverside lies this brick and terra cotta Victorian mansion, built in 1893. Known as one of the most unique architectural landmarks in Riverside, Castle Green charms visitors with its round turrets, arched windows, and green exterior trim. Though it was originally constructed as a private residence, Castle Green now operates as a living history museum and event space. Your group can tour the first floor’s late 19th century furnishings and décor on a guided visit. If you have time, enjoy afternoon tea or a meal in the quaint dining room. Before heading back to your Party Bus Company Riverside charter bus, walk the castle’s sprawling grounds. Have fun navigating the hedge maze and lily pond while admiring 360-degree views of Riverside’s skyline.
