My brother lives in AH, it's pretty much the same as Corona in terms of schools.

Is Corona safe with good schools? I'm checking into different areas of CA as possible relocation. Are there certain areas I should focus on?

South Corona is good. Very new and nice. However, if you need to take the 91...your commute will suck. You will be stuck in the sky on the 15/91 junction for a solid 10 minutes. I also like Eastvale but they do have high HOA fees.

I'm generally not a fan of Riverside. Definitely has some nice spots but its also by far the most annoying city to drive in. The traffic lights last forever and the timing makes you go insane.

That's interesting that you say that. In the two years that I have lived in Riverside, I find it very easy to drive here.

I've also commented several times on how well the traffic lights are timed. I'm not trying to argue, just stating my opinion.

Try driving down Glenoaks Blvd in Burbank. Those traffic lights will drive you nuts!!!!

Comparing Burbank to Riverside isn't a fair comparsion. Riverside compared to any other city in the IE is awful. Only other city is San Bernardino but everything in that city is awful.

I use to work all over Corona and Riverside. Traveling thru Corona took half as much time.

OK, I'll give you that.

But, where I come from, Riverside is a breeze.

Riverside is Awesome. South Corona can be uppity and main street can be down right dangerous. The gang and meth issue (I feel) is more pronounced in parts of Corona. The 15 & 91 brings in a lot of elements from other areas. Riverside would be a breeze of a commute with more established areas with housing and greens. If you want to play it safe, go south of the 91 freeway. But there are plenty of great schools and great areas in both cities.

Corona has some uppity, nice places. It has better access to OC/Beaches than Riverside. Riverside is pretty cool and underrated, but it feels a tiny bit more isolated than Corona.

Corona feels more like a suburb.
