Hi everyone!

I am brand new to the site and this is my first post. I just received notification about landing a good job located in Corona! Now comes the tough part...
I currently live in Pennsylvania and need some information. I am on a very tight budget and need to find a place to live that is not a far commute.
What are some nice and safe areas to live at near Corona?
This is a very expensive time for me, especially with the cost to relocate, and I need as much information as you all can help me with.

Is Corona safe? I am a single, 23 year old male and would really like to feel comfortable in the area that I live in. I need a place where it's safe to go running each day.

Are there any areas I should stay away from?

I would love to find a place under $700.

Any additional information I should know about?

High crime? Things to do? Nightlife? Fun?

I would really love to accept the job, but I need to make sure the area is right for me. I have never been to Corona and if I receive solid information, I will be taking a trip out there soon to sign a lease and start the moving process.

Thank you all in advance.

-Matt

Only way you can do that budget is with roommates.

Or San Bernardino, Hemet, or Victorville. Or maybe Banning. Or something small (a la a studio) in a not so good area, (Bloomington, Colton, Rialto, et al).

Good luck, but expect a long commute/not good neighborhood (or both) if you're willing to try to pull it off w/o roommates.

Corona is safe. We went to LA/OC/beach/mountains/deserts/malls for fun. There are clubs and bars.

Good luck.

I don't think you'll find a place for rent at $700 anywhere in So.Cal...Some rooms rent for $600 a month...

Thanks for the help! What about a budget of under $1,000? I really want to accept the job, but also be able to afford a living a little bit.

Take a look at Craigslist. Places are out there at $900-1000 but they might not be up to your expectations/standards. The decent 1BR apartments run $1200-1300+.

Most all of Corona is quite safe, even Riverside isnt too bad, (you will not Pa safe )
for your budget, of 700-1000 you just wont find too much in this area, unless its a shared house situation, the cost of living, car ins, fuel and standard cost of entertainment, can be quite High here compared to Pa. Hope your new job more than covers this anticipated increase in living costs.

Corona is nice. Parts of Riverside are nice, too. Any way of upping that rent budget to 900-1000? Or just find a roommate!
