Take a walk with me through historic downtown Upland! Why waste the warm 80 degree weather and clear sky by staying indoors?!
It was the perfect movie scene as I ate in the outdoor seating of this Italian restaurant called Allegro.
No bugs were buzzing around for food, my napkins weren’t flying all over the place, and I was with my mom! If only the food was as good as it looked, sigh. I decided to order the Bolognese spaghetti
Of course the restaurants are only part of what Historic Upland has to offer. There is also a vinyl shop , antique/novelty shops , modern coffee shops, and bars!
The only other historical town I have been to was Old Town San Diego. It is filled with too many families and not enough people my age. That is how I was expecting Historical Downtown Upland to be, but I was wrong. To my surprise, there were a mixture of young adults and older adults! I’m sure the hipster coffee shops and vinyl shops help to bring in that mixed crowd. I wasn’t surprised to see more empty shops than many open shops though.
There are also events held here for example, this Irish festival!
I also saw signs for a free punk flea market which will be held on February 16th from 10 AM through 5 PM. Along with a farmers market held every Saturday!
I’m so happy to have this visit as a new memory. It’s worth stopping by one day when you want to take a walk and take a break away from technology. Maybe plan a visit on a Saturday morning to check out the farmer’s market and walk down to a restaurant.
After a day of walking under the warm sun, I’m left ready to head home and take a nap!
See you next time! bbbbyyyyeee!
