What is the surrounding area like?

Located in the hills of Glen Helen Regional Park, the amphitheater is a few miles' drive from the nearby city of San Bernardino. Here you can find a smattering of decent cafes but it's probably better to leave your tux and dancing shoes at home.

What is there to do in San Bernardino before heading to a concert?

Glen Helen Regional Park

Outdoor lovers can enjoy a countryside romp across the 1,340 acres of this regional park. Several picnic areas complement sandwiches with spectacular views; afterwards visitors can cool off in the swimming pool which has dual water slides or find the two fishing lakes. The entrance fee is $8-10 per vehicle.

Glen Helen Raceway

Perched against a mountainside, this raceway sees crowds roar as motor-crossers speed around 256 acres. Several major events are held annually so check out the upcoming line-up.

Joseph Filippi Winery

The Filippi family has been serving up fine wines since 1922. Care for a tipple? Award-winning vintages include the 2009 Petite Sirah Cucamonga Valley, available to taste at daily sessions  at $5.00 for 5 tastes.

Where are the best places to eat before a concert?

Chef Cindy's Cafe

This spot just north of the amphitheater is a handy, laidback place for some breakfast or lunch. Creative takes on American classics include orange-stuffed French waffles and tuna salad with tomatoes, cheese and fresh fruit.  

Le Rendez-Vous Cafe

It's not just French cooking served up here. It's a little charm of yesteryear. The menu sets mouths watering with dishes like mussels provencale, cajun popcorn shrimp and grilled filet mignon; found in the area of Colton, 7.5 miles away.

Brothers Pizza

Although 17 miles south of the concert venue, Brothers Pizza lures diners with its dough made fresh every day and generous toppings like barbeque chicken and avocado delight with jalapenos and chorizo.

Rosa Maria's

In need of a quick pre- or post-concert snack? Order ahead for Mexican food to-go. Based near to San Manuel Amphitheater hotels, the eatery is an easy choice for hand-dipped rellenos and the signature garbage burrito.

How much are drinks and food in San Manuel Amphitheater?

Predictably pricey. You can expect to pay $15 for a large premium beer, $7.50 for a cheeseburger and $5.50 for nachos.

How much does parking at San Manuel Amphitheater cost?

Most of the time, parking is included in the price of the ticket. If not, it'll be $10 for general and $20 for VIP parking. ADA parking is available in the West Lot.

Any other important information the user should know?

Small lawn chairs, blankets and towels get the thumbs-up for most shows. Remember that the outdoor amphitheater can provide little shade in the hot summer months, so keep sipping that water.

Our first time ever at this venue to see Mumford & Sons and we were super excited about it. We loved the grounds and for an outdoor venue, there were plenty of food options. However, with that being said, we will NEVER return based on getting out of this place. It took us more than 1hr 30mins, just to get to the exit from our $20 "VIP" parking. I understand there are thousands of people leaving but when you have people that you know who parked in free GA and were out and on the road hours before you, that's pretty sad. Others had commented on an issue with getting "in" and "out" but getting in was a breeze! - "Give us $20; park there". There is NO exaggeration at all when I say/write that we got in our vehicle at 10:15ish (right after it ended, pulled forward say 5-6ft behind the next vehicle and NEVER MOVED EVEN ONE-INCH. We had to shut down the engine and, as I previously mentioned, didn't move again for more than 1hr 30mins. TRUTH IS, we would not have gotten out when we did if it weren't for seeing a line of 5 cars going up the back hill to a fence that someone took upon themselves to take down so they could get out! Needless to say, it made for a much later arrival home to Vegas. Also, the website (and people you talk to when calling in) states what you can and can't take in. Apparently, this must be on a case-by-case basis. If not for seeing the most amazing band ever, this trip would've been a complete disaster. M&S was our saving grace!

Liked: Nice grounds.
Disliked: Getting "OUT" of this place.

Overall it was a good experience. Hopefully there is no confusion the next time with the items we can take in.

Disliked: We kept receiving the wrong information as far as what the public was able to take inside.

We got there early to avoid all the traffic parking and paid the $20 for VIP parking - that was great. I love the venue. I can't imagine there being a bad seat in the whole place. Even the lawn looked like they had a great view. The only issue was leaving after the concert. It took us an hour before we could even think about leaving, which is actually OK - gives everyone time to sober up before getting on the road :) I didn't mind hanging out and waiting for the line to die down. Love it there!

Liked: Awesome outside venue.
Disliked: One lane in and out.

Not fond of the security guards' attitude but it was a big crowd so they were probably scared.

Liked: Clean bathrooms and fun atmosphere.
Disliked: The sun in my face.
