Default Need opinions of Orangecrest neighborhood in Riverside-

My husband and two kids currently live in Portland Oregon and are strongly considering a move to Riverside Ca. We have visited there before and like the Orangecrest neighborhood. We are looking for information about the neighborhood, King High and the local economy. Any info would greatly help. Thank you!

I was raised in seattle and now live here in riverside. Orangecrest is a typical so cal subdivision neighborhood. Newer homes, not many trees, bigger houses, smaller lots, lots of middle class families. Not very much like portland. Not much character, no mountains (actually there a mountains, but they are behind the smog), not artsy. Personally, i would never trade portland for riverside. Is there a reason for the move?

We lived in Orangecrest for several years, and it has pleasantly built homes with plenty of reasonable shopping. The schools are crowded but solid, and King has a lot to offer. Could do worse in the Inland Empire.

Riverside sounds awesome! Portland has lots of character and art but too much rain, unfriendly people, and I can't find a good job (been looking for 7 months with a masters degree). I know some people like Oregon but its not for me. Thanks for your help!
