Redlands Nightlife: Enjoy St. Paddy’s Day at Royal Falconer

The Royal Falconer is an old school British Pub with a great atmosphere and even better drinks. But just because the location is a British Pub doesn’t’ mean they won’t celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The holiday falls on Friday, March 17th this year and is sure to be festive and fun because most people have Saturday off (hooray!).

The reviews for the Royal Falconer are great with one person saying “I like this British pub. The bartenders are always really nice and relaxed. Drinks are made quickly and the vibe is chill. Go to place for a night cap and to meet cool people.” St. Patrick’s Day is expected to be a big affair with locals coming out to enjoy the bar. The location typically serves green beers and provides festive holiday decor and other fun activities to make St. Paddy’s Day as much fun as possible.

Enjoy a Play at the Lifehouse Theater in Redlands

In 2017, we have a near endless amount of options for entertainment. We can browse the internet, stream movies, binge television shows, or get caught up in a social media haze straight from your phone. However, sometimes it’s good to try something new and out of the box, like heading over to an actual theater and watching a play!

Theater productions have lost a bit of their previous audience numbers over the last decade, but still date back as one of the oldest forms of entertainment we have. This March, the Lifehouse theater will be hosting a live performance of the classic story of Peter Pan. So join Peter, Wendy, Tinkerbell and the Lost Boys for a musical night of whimsy and fun. Tickets cost $25 (which is a great value for this awesome experience) and shows will be running all weekend long. Check out this link for more information and to purchase tickets.

Go Hiking at Caroline Park in Redlands

Hiking is a wonderful past time, but it can be much harder than it seems. You need to understand the trails, have the right clothing and shoes, and know how to keep pace.  Expert always advise to bring plenty of water to stay hydrated and plan to carry enough water for an entire day (which is a lot).

You should also keep small snacks just to keep your energy levels up. Safety is the biggest key, however, and keeping communication with the outside world is essential. Text someone your hiking route just so they know where you’ll be. Once you are done, text that friend and let them know you are safe.

Now that we’ve given you a few tips, try heading out to Carolina park on Poppy St in Redlands for a hike sometime soon. You’ll thank us for it. Happy trails!
