Redlands is a city in the United States located in the southwestern part of San Bernardino County, California. In the 18th century, after the arrival of the first settlers, the territory of today's Redlands was included in the San Bernardino Ranch. Although settlement began in 1865, its intensification took place after constructing a railway linking southern California with San Francisco.
