how does the largest (San Bernardino) and the fastest growing (Riverside) counties in the entire state not merit categories?

this isn't to start a debate on why to (or not to) live in the counties, just thought it was odd that SB, Riv, or them combined didn't rate a folder.

Most people from outside Southern California aren't looking for information on those areas, and most people in Southern California are familiar with them and don't need answers. I spent more than half my life in both counties and it literally felt like I graduated when we sold our most recent house in Riverside.

Hello

I am looking for information about Riverside, CA. I just want some basic information such as housing, jobs, crime and where I can find the nearest beach?

Riverside and San Bernardino are really ladened with smog. Not too long ago the Press Enterprise had an article saying that the hills near Claremont were the worst for smog and cities closer to Temecula were on the cleaner side.

The Inland Empire does merit it's own subgroup. Especially since I see threads about them in both the main California Forum, and the Los Angeles subforum.

And C-D could probably dump the underutilized San Jose Forum, and combine it into a SF Bay Area one.

There's absolutely nothing there. It's mostly just desert and tract homes to be honest.

Of course there is something there. San Bernardino County is the largest county in the mainland U. S. and is bigger than 4 states combined. It includes Big Bear, Joshua Tree and the Mojave Desert so it's one of the most diverse counties in CA.

I'm not going to say that the Inland Empire is the best place to live. But ... you can't totally dismiss it either for the following reasons:

Net migration out of LA-Long Beach-Santa Ana is about 120,000 a year ... meaning 120,000 more people are moving out than moving in.

Same for San Francisco ... which is losing about 60,000 people a year.

Same for San Diego ... which is losing about 15,000 people net a year.

Who's gaining? Other states, and inland California areas like Sacramento, Fresno, Bakersfield and, especially, the Inland Empire ...

Namely Riverside-San Bernardino counties with more than 80,000 people moving there every year.

Maybe there's not much there now but ... with these numbers ... it won't be that way for long.

It's pretty ridiculous to say people don't need information when these are the areas that people are moving to in greater numbers than anywhere else in California.

Absolutely nothing there ... well, I guess I can see your point to some extent. But it sure seems to be changing.

They just built a brand new shopping mall next to the existing mall near Rancho Cucamonga. Lots of ritzy stores there ... kind makes you wonder who's buying all of that stuff since there's absolutely nothing there.

Bass Outdoors just built a huge ... and I mean huge ... complex next to the new mall also, with additional shops and restaurants. They actually showcase boats there ... hence the size of the place. Why boats? Because there's a huge reservoir for boat ethusiasts at the foot of the mountains, not to mention Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear lakes as well.

Both Bass and the malls are absolutely packed every time I drive by. The traffic is backed up all the way to the freeway so you can't help but notice.

As I previously mentioned, 80,000 people are moving out to the Inland Empire every year ... while LA and San Diego are actually losing population. So, I wouldn't say there's absolutely nothing there.
