Banning is a thriving small city located in Riverside County along Interstate 10 between the Inland Empire and the Coachella Valley in the San Gorgonio Pass. The Banning Chamber of Commerce says they are "near everything but away from it all." The town is in a beautiful setting with scenic views of both Mt. San Gorgonio and Mt. San Jacinto, the two tallest peaks in Southern California. A very historical city, Banning was originally settled in 1853 when Dr. Isaac Smith brought his wife and seven children to the area. He built a house called Smith's Station, which later became Highland Home and eventually Highland Springs. The following year, the Gilman Ranch adobe was built, which later served as a stagecoach stop between the Arizona territories and Los Angeles. Eventually, the railroad replaced the stagecoach, but Banning is still referred to as "Stagecoach Town, U.S.A." Each year the town hosts a Stagecoach Days Celebration featuring a carnival, rodeo and parade. Also, while visiting, check out the beautiful hand painted murals that are found on many of the buildings around the town.

Banning Weather & Climate

The vast desert region of southern California east of Los Angeles has a typical desert climate. This area, which includes Palm Springs, Palm Desert and Rancho Mirage receives only 15-20 days of rainfall per year for a total of 4.77 inches. The days are mostly sunny and warm and nights are cool from fall through late spring. Summers turn hot to very hot, with occasional high clouds, and warm, balmy evenings May through October. The humidity levels are very low, so even when the mercury climbs to 100 degrees, it feels comfortable in the shade. Keep in mind that temperatures are 30-40 degrees lower at the top of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway and in the Alpine community of Idyllwild.
