You won't know if you will like a location until you're there. So I would plan a trip to Corona (or any city you are considering) where you can stay at an AirBnB or hotel for at least a week to see if you enjoy it.

Personally, I have lived in LA County, OC, and IE. There are certain places that I can't stand and would feel completely depressed living or working in. Other places that feel better to me. So it really depends on the vibe you get once you're there.

Corona has many new homes and some nice areas, but also some industrial areas with companies that make plastics or other products that emit exhaust and chemicals. The traffic is literally horrible on the closest freeways in and out of Corona. Personally I wouldn't like it, but I know people who love it and have huge, new homes with some actual land in your price range.

Good luck deciding. Remember to take your time until you find the best situation.

Default Where did you like living

Thank You for the post. What areas did you like living in?
I will be retired; so I don't need to drive in commute times.
I would like to live in a safe area. Just seems like it is hard to find a SFR with pool in LA county within
$600,000 to 650,000.
I am moving from a safe community in Port Orchard, Wa with a very nice house, so it would be hard to move into bad area with rundown house. I could stretch to afford more expensive house, but I don't want to be cash poor. I am moving for the sunshine, pool, and activities like theme parks, beaches, entertainment options.

i spent four 1/2 years in wildomar. a norcal native. inland empire is brown brown brown, ugly, smoggy, crowded and lacking in anything i'd call culture. easy drive to san diego (beware of pay roads in any direction) but that was the only upside. lots of republicans and bible thumpers. i was right off the freeway and the sound of the freeway started out getting quiet around 9:00 or 10:00 at night (2001). at the end (2005) it was 24/7 noise.
