Its a big ol city and all.the bads and goods that come with big ol cities apply. You know redlands has its problems too. I live close to west san bernardino and tyhink riverside is lovely but it just isnt my cup of tea. This is a good start but if you are that concerned goto.temecula and around there. Murrieta is supposed tobe great. Then commute in. If you did wamt to go towards redlands loma linda is the nicer safer area.

Default Riverside is a nice place to live

Hello,
In reply to your question, Riverside is a great place to live. It is not extremely pricey, actually is affordable and safe. The nice things are having UCR campus here for college bound people. Also we have a nice historical community that brings a lor of character to our town.. There are many communities here that are desirable to buy in, such as Canyon Crest, Orange Crest, the wood streets, Lake Hills, and Woodcrest / Lake Matthews are which are more rural. You will not see uppity people here just down to earth people ☺. Poly and Arlington are good high schools. Riverside is not too far from the O.C. and the Metrolink is available here too .

That doesn't mean other new comers can't learn from additional posts.

I'm new to the Lake Hills area. What are the "cleaner" areas for cheap eats and grocery shopping if I want to stay away from the panhandlers and other transient types as much as possible? They are scary at times.

There is PLENTY of eats and shopping. Not hard to find.

Corona on the north side of the 91 freeway off of McKinley (there's a Costco there). South Corona along the 15 (Magnolia, Ontario, Cajalco, Dos Lagos). La Sierra isn't bad away from the freeway. Areas around the Magnolia and the Tyler Mall and further east towards Riverside Plaza and Central. Avoid Home Gardens.

The transients are worst right along the freeways and downtown Riverside. Most are harmless, I've never had an issue. Otherwise it's not terrible.

There are some sketchy areas of Riverside, but all and all it’s pretty safe. I went to UCR for a year and I never felt unsafe running around Riverside as a young single female.

Never had any crime issues during my 4 years at UC Riverside. Jumped 39 spots (to #85) on 2019 US News ranks...biggest gain of ANY college in the NATION and the fastest growing UC for a reason! Go Highlanders!

What's wrong with Home Gardens? It's not far from the McKinley Costco you mentioned.
