Corona Things to Do

  • Glen Ivy...It's Time to Rejuvenate!!

    This place gets major props. It is a huge, beautiful SPA with tons of 'mini attractions'. I started off by visiting the grotto which is an underground cavern that takes you on a moisturizing adventure. I came out feeling like a million bucks. Very inexpensive ($17) and well worth it. You can actually go before noon and it half off...Next to it was...

  • Toms Farms

    This is an interesting place to go to. It used to be just a small farm that sold fresh produce. Then a hamburger stand was openned and then a Mexican restaurant. It is a place that you can easily spend the whole day at.Theres alot of entertainment for the kids, shopping, and people watching. For some reason its also a very popular place for bikers.

  • Play in the Mud Bath

    The mud is an indigenous clay that said to have healing properties, as well as cleansing. It does stain some clothes, so they suggest you wear an "old" bathing suit. It also stains the skin - however, it comes off when you use the scrub brush and warm shower next to the mud bath.

  • A Definate Must if you are in Corona

    If you are from Corona, then I am not telling you anything that you don't already know. But if you are new to the area, or driving through, then Miguels Jr is a must. Authentic Mexican food at an inexpensive price. All of us grew up on Miguels! :) Do I have to pick one?Well growing up it would have been the bean and cheese burrito, hands down. But...

  • Italian Fast Food?

    While trying to find an Italian Restaurant recommended by the hotel, we discovered Fazolis, an Italian Fast Food Restaurant, this was a first. We were not dissapointed. The sampler of spaghetti, lasagna and Fettucini Alfredo was excellent and the bread sticks were the best I ever had; garlic with cheese and butter.

Corona Local Customs

  • marinarena's Profile Photo

    by marinarena Written Nov 13, 2006

    Travelling on the 91 freeway upon entering Corona and Riverside County (from Orange county), motorists come across the "Fast Trak" lanes. These are lanes dedicated to locals who commute, usually Monday-Friday from county to county. At peak traffic times, morning and evening "rush hours", packed traffic is eased (just a bit) by the Fast Trak riders who have a device placed in their automobiles to allow themselves passage into the lanes. Though it may be tempting, other drivers cannot legally going in these lanes. Don't be too jealous of Fast Trakers though- riders who want to use FastTrax have to pay, up to about $5.00 each time going on a Fast Trak section. Average cost of entering is about $2.50 For peak times, the rate is higher and during weekend slow period it's often $1.00 or less.

    Glen Ivy Spa

    by Goner Updated May 23, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Spending a day at Glen Ivy is a real treat. You can sit in the mineral baths, Roman baths, steam room, and sauna. You can swim in their warm pools or float on the relaxing pool. Take a mud bath and bake in the sun. You can be massaged from head to toe. You can be scrubbed, waxed and polished; be hydrated, re-habilitated, and punctured. Also, manicured and pedicured. Whatever you choose you will enjoy.

    There is also a cafe on the grounds with healthy food - sorry no wine coolers.

    Fondest memory: A place where you can be pampered in beautiful surroundings.
