Is Riverside California a good place to live?
Cities in the western portion, including Riverside, San Bernardino, Ontario, and a patchwork of other communities, are developed suburbs of the Los Angeles area with a rapidly growing and increasingly self-sufficient economy. Riverside draws people in with its affordability (relative to the rest of Southern California), its growing economy, its temperate weather, its scenic hills and valleys, and its enviable location between the beach and the mountains. Jeff MacCharles, lead portal administrator at the UCPath Center, said he first bought a starter home in the Riverside area, and was later able to parlay that investment into a family home. Winters are mostly wet, but there have been instances of snowfall in parts of Riverside County’s mountains in recent years.
