Thanks in advance for the guidance and help!
We are a family of 5 (3 kids 8,10,16), contemplating to relocate from DC to the area. We will be either renting or buying(not yet sure) and are looking between Corona and Riverside.
School quality is one (if not THE) of the main drivers, we want to spend (either on rent or mortgage ) something in the area of 2500-3k for a single family home.
Work will be in Corona
Suggestions?

i'd rent in orange county and commute to corona with that housing budget. look at yorba linda or anaheim hills. while schools aren't terrible in corona, they can't compete with those in the nicer areas of orange county. i can't speak to riverside schools, but would guess that most are par at best.

Thanks a lot for the advice! I am looking at the map and noticed that commute involves driving on 91. How a bad of a commute timing do you anticipate?

It would be a reverse commute, which means doable.

Other than the school quality, are there other differences to note between the cities? Crime, etc?

Here's a useful tool for your own research. Scroll down for the crime stats for whatever city you look up. Yorba Linda's stats are impressive.

Live in newer South Corona. You'll get "Yorba Linda" with a shorter commute.

This is very true! South side of Corona is extremely nice, and the schools are excellent. There are a lot of nice churches, and it is a family environment. I lived in Yorba Linda for a while growing up, and south Corona is pretty much just as nice, as well as being less expensive and closer for your commute.

If you are choosing Corona vs. Riverside, Corona would be the better choice every time. It just has a better feel to it. It is a lot more family friendly, and closer to a lot of the activities that Orange County has to offer (such as beach, Disney, etc.)

We were able to find several houses in 92881 (SC), and it matches to what you guys are suggesting, seems like schools are good in the area and houses look newer and bigger.

You pretty much responded to what my next question was going to be, Thanks a lot!
