What do most people mean when they make a general statement about "The Inland Empire"?

When I look at online resources, they say the Inland Empire includes San Bernardino County, but apparently that wasn't big enough, so they threw in Riverside County. So the two counties combined are comparable in size to five states put together. Looking at the map, the two counties extend all the way to the borders of Arizona & Nevada, and in fact Craigslist & city-data.com searches turn up stuff on Needles, CA categorized under the I.E.

But aside from exceptions like that, I take it when most people use "the Inland Empire", they are referring to the southwest corner (about 5000 square miles).

Or do people mean something different?

That map is correct. Some people include the Coachella Valley, but I don't.

Ditto, and even though the (909) extends into LA County, it is NOT included in the Inland Empire IMO.

Re: the map, I agree, but I might chop off Lucerne Valley.

Silly me. I thought "I.E." was shorthand for Fontucky.

When I was a kid, Ontario, Upland, Montclair and some nearby burgs were referred to as "The West End". Not sure if that was of SB County or the IE and if the term's still in use.

It's a subset of San Bernardino and Riverside Counties. It definitely does not pick up the high desert north of the Cajon Pass in SB Co and anything beyond. It also does not pick up much beyond Redlands and Moreno Valley, going east. A person from Palm Desert or Rancho Mirage would hit you over the head if you called them an IEer. It is "THE 909," baby. Am I close?

The Victor Valley and Banning/Beaumont are generally accepted as being IE.

Ok Tucky, you can have your Lucerne.

Crap, so my revered and rare Bob's Big Boy in Calimesa is IE real estate? Next time I'm driving east, I'll stop at Bob's in Diamond Bar. J/K.
