While the California Southern Railroad brought Colton, CA, to life at the turn of the century, today many families appreciate the city for its peaceful parks and quiet streets. Homes for rent in Colton, located near San Bernardino, offer many opportunities for families of all sizes.
Locals gather at the Mt. Vernon Shopping Center to have lunch while shopping, and families can spend weekend afternoons at one of the local parks, like Veteran's Park or Fleming Park. The Santa Ana River borders the western side of Colton, and those living nearby can enjoy the walking and jogging greenway that runs alongside the river.
One of Colton residents' favorite places to dine in the city is Jean's French Restaurant, a family-owned restaurant with an authentic French menu. You will be tempted by escargots and a steaming plate of escalope de veau viennoise - that is, sliced veal with butter.
