August 25, 2021
It’s a simple truth: there is no more perfect pairing than food and nice weather when you live in Southern California. Celebrate National Eat Outside Day this August 31st by taking your favorite meal outside! Bask in the beautiful summer air on your favorite patio, sidewalk café, or even pack a lunch and enjoy a picnic in the park with your besties. After all, we’re living in a time during which dining outside is preferable, so why not?
We’ve got you covered with many delicious outdoor spots in Upland that are perfect to celebrate the occasion with no problem – from low-key brunching to old-school Italian. And best of all, you can get there with OmniRide Upland, the newest way for Uplanders to get around town.
