I live in the city of Riverside and love it. I feel very safe where I'm at. Like any city of decent size (Riverside is about 300,000 people) there are definitely nice areas, bad areas, mixed areas. But there's a great community feel here and I'd highly recommend looking into it. If you're looking for older historic homes check out the Wood Streets or Downtown. If you want a newer, more homogeneous feel check out Orangecrest or Mission Grove. Established suburban area with a cool town center check out Canyon Crest.

Yes Riverside has some nice areas that you will be completely fine in but it also does have its bad areas I would personally go farther east to Yucaipa which is the next city past Redlands , Redlands is nice but it also has its bad parts as well but smaller than Riverside.

So how far away would someone need to work for you to NOT recommend Yucaipa?

Sounds like a troll took everyone for a ride. Never responded, and didn't say where they were from.

Just like any other city/town, Im sure Riverside has its good and its bad. I lived there probably about 30 years ago and it has changed a lot since then. Some of my family lives out there but they can afford to. I couldnt handle the air quality though, now, everytime we go out there for a day it seems hard to take deep breath at the end of the day.

One doesn't hear or read about crime in Riverside all that much. Riverside is sort of off the beaten track but big enough to keep people happy without having to drive into LA. It is really hot during summer but pleasant most of the time. There are school gangs & usual problems like all of California but nothing too insane.

Riverside County is a huge area. Riverside county goes all the way to palm dessert, which explains why there is so many gangs but everywhere you go you will be around a gang (and not even know it)!

If you move to the area around the Riverside Plaza than dont go to Nicholas Park as there are alot of gangs that hang out there. Still the crime rates keep going up but the city still is safe due to the police action that Riverside County has!

Hope your journey in Riverside County is a pleasant one!

CHECK: Riverside County goes all the way to Arizona and the Colorado River, near Blythe.

Want my opinion? Go somewhere else. That whole area is just plain run down and creepy. I can't see anything worth the risk of the trip.
