Attention LA and OC: Avoid the IE. This is no place for a worldly sophisticate such as yourself. You do not want to spend your weekends clogging our freeways with your exodus back to your rich white friends and Antarctic/Borneoan fusion cuisine. Not that the IE isn't entirely white - of course it is! People of other ethnicities don't move here to escape perceived racism and economic segregation in LA. That's not something that resulted in a major news story or anything like folk is as lilypure as Ol' Alabammy. You can't find decent Mexican food here because Mexican immigrants and their descendants don't live here. Well, they do sometimes manage to sneak around our rabid dog patrols, but they aren't located in convenient enclaves where the nouveau riche descendants of Okies can slum it and brag about their courageous cultural enrichment in the barrio. In the IE, those people aren't just your ordinary neighbors...nope, because it's nothing but toothless peckerwoods around here. And boy, does it get HOT! Summer is hot, which is like totally weird and you can't be expected to suffer discomfort and where are you supposed to yogasurf?? And your friends can't call you in Riverslime because they keep dialing '909' and the call won't go through for some reason. So just turn your Land Rover around and keep spewing your pollutants in your own overpopulated backyard...all of your filth eventually gets blown here anyway.

A region in Southern California including: San Bernardino County, Riverside County, and parts of Los Angeles County and Orange County.
Parts in/near San Bernardino City are the worst parts, as this is a devastatingly abandoned and "ghetto" desert area. The areas closest to the actual city of San Bernardino have many old time connections to the Hells Angels, notorious gangs, and the mafia.
Many times small regions are landlocked by mountains, hills, and highways. This makes for easy to enforce gang territory. Interstate 15 and 215 are two of the most convenient ways for people to travel to Las Vegas. This should help understand the L.A. connection to Las Vegas better.
The zodiac killer is believed to have killed multiple people in these areas along the 15/215, and also in the Riverside area.
The western parts get less desert influenced and more Los Angeles/Hispanic influence. Pomona would probably be the furthest west that people consider to be a part of the IE.
The southern parts along Riverside, Corona, and the areas closer to Orange County are more influenced by Caucasians and whites. These people inhabit the less-dangerous parts of the regions. and "bros" as they call them. Many of these people are similar to rural southerners in their style of "trashiness". They drive lifted trucks, wear hats,wear jersey tank tops. These areas are more city-influenced and are generally have very active street scenes.
Have you ever heard of the Inland Empire?

Ok for all you fuckers that keep hating on the Inland Empire I.E. 909 whatever you wanna call it this is the real Empire

Collection of Cities each with its own personality, some are jus quite and safe cause of the amazing number of cops and snitches( Rancho Cucamonga) and others you can grow kush in your garage without anyone giving a fuck (Fontana/Rialto) Like any other places in America we got gangs hos wannabes and bitches.

If ya wanna go to IE set up base in one the quiet cities and jus hop from city to city would take you at most a half hour to get to the next
Ride the 66 all through the Inland Empire

A bunch of piece of crap towns with nothing to do except go to wal-mart.
Don't ever move to San Bernardino.

If you want to live in California, move to San Diego or Orange County.
