Default Relocating from Seattle to Corona

We will be relocating to the Inland Empire area mid to late June for my husband's employer. His company will be located off of Carbide Drive in Corona. We are in our late 20s to early 30s and have 3 children, a 5 year old and 3 year old twins. We are looking to rent a house in an area that has good schools, is family friendly with low crime and is a smooth commute to Corona. So far, we have been told to avoid Lake Elsinore and search only in Murrieta, Menifee and Temecula. However, after reading about the traffic and smog, etc., we are now confused as to where to look. Can you please provide us with honest and detailed advice/opinions on the best areas to be looking, we would surely appreciate it. Thank you in advance.

There are nice areas of Corona that will be just fine. California School Performance Maps shows school ratings(standardized test scores, some people place little value in them). Yes, Temecula nad Murrieta are nice, but Corona can probably provide the same thing(though probably at a slightly higher cost). In general, the quality of the neighborhood/general area can be correlated with the quality of the school ratings

After looking at that map, it appears Murrieta schools have high ranked scores, but how would the commute to Corona and back be for an 8-5?

Depends on what part of Corona. There are surface street routes one can take to certain parts of Corona to avoid some or most of the daily snarl of the Northbound 15/91 interchange.

The ride home will suck the closer to Temecula you get. There are very few exits for a LOT of commuters, and it gets hectic

And next to nothing when it comes to alternate routes, much like any canyon commuter route in So Cal.

Stick with Corona. Most of Corona is easy to travel street wise once the freeways get slammed. That area is the nicer / newer area of Corona. There are ALOT of new homes in South Corona off Indian Truck Trail and Temescual Canyon. However, those areas are pretty isolated from shopping centers and whatnot. The most centralized nice area IMO is off Hidden Valley.


Most of Corona is pretty nice. It's really what type of style you want. Plenty of new homes, there are homes about 100 years old in the Circle City area, and there are homes which have huge lot sizes...real rural.
