Inland Empire Excellence

Filled with stunning architecture, beautiful palm and orange tree-lined streets with unparalleled sunsets, fountains, and sculptures, and of course one of the most extraordinary hotels in the world. Riverside is waiting for you to make the most of your conference experience.

Places to Stay

CANP has reserved a block of rooms for conference attendees at a single/double rate at three different hotels, all located within a block of the Riverside Convention Center. The conference rate will be honored for three days before and after the conference dates.


Things to Do

Boost the fun factor by experiencing some of the many delights Riverside has to offer, including unique dining options, invigorating outdoor activities, and local museums and entertainment.


If you’re staying at the Mission Inn, you can enjoy fine dining at the Mission Inn Restaurant, or the other restaurant options the hotel has to offer. For libations with a side of American history, the Presidential Lounge is the “in” spot. Visited by ten U.S. presidents, it’s the perfect place for networking.

For other dining options around town, choose from the hip and trendy Salted PigAngel Thai Cuisine, and Punjab Palace.

Outdoor Activities

If you enjoy the wonders of Mother Nature, a visit to the UCR Botanic Gardens is a must. It’s home to more than 3,500 species of plants from around the world — all gracing 40 acres of breathtaking scenery. For those residing in the Mission Inn, the Chinese Pavilion is a designated cultural landmark that rests just across the street.  

Traveling with the kids? Be sure to set aside time for Castle Park, where you’ll find scores of rides and attractions, miniature golf courses, and a state-of-the art video arcade.

Museums and Entertainment

Feed the art lover in your soul at the Riverside Art Museum, with exhibits that highlight both traditional and contemporary art. For a taste of natural history, the Riverside Metropolitan Museum brings the region’s past to life with an impressive collection of artifacts.

However you choose to spend your time in Riverside, you’re sure to find something to delight and entertain.
