Perris lies halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego, settled almost a hundred and fifty years ago during a boom period in Southern California. Today it is known for Lake Perris, and the adrenaline-pumping activities here like skydiving and racing at the Perris Auto Speedway are well worth a visit.
A jet charter airport in Perris lets visitors explore the Southern California Railway Museum, the largest museum of its kind on the west coast. Climb aboard the museum’s collection of more than 200 railway locomotives, streetcars, and electric cars. Learn about the history of transportation in the Los Angeles area and watch live demonstrations.
The moderate temperature and expansive area in and around Perris attract visitors year-round. It also makes for a great location for aerial adventures. Adventure Flights offers hot air balloon rides over Perris that provide views for miles around. Spot oceans, ancient volcanoes, and mountainous terrain from your vantage point in the sky.
Skydive Perris also takes to the sky, but offers a much faster return to solid ground. Operating for more than 40 years, Skydive Perris is the largest skydiving center in the area. Divers from Los Angeles and San Diego flock to the area to make their jumps.
Enjoy the warm California weather by getting outdoors in Perris. The Lake Perris State Recreation Area is a great place to relax on a boat or try your hand at birding. Campgrounds and the sandy lakeshore welcome families ready for a dip in the lake.
