Where are the best places to live in Riverside?

I’m currently living in Garden Grove and I’m getting really sick of the traffic and ridiculous housing costs. I’ve heard it’s somewhat quieter inland, so I’m considering moving somewhere within Riverside next year. Where are the best places to live there?

The constant traffic—and lack of good drivers—in Orange County is a very understandable motivation to head for (somewhat) quieter roads. The high housing cost in California is an even bigger motivating factor. With that in mind, the best places to live in Riverside depend on what sort of lifestyle you’re looking for:
  • For younger crowds, bars, and nightlife—University and Eastside
  • For families, schools, and parks—Orangecrest, Alessandro Heights, and Wood Streets
  • For diverse restaurants, museums, and events—Canyon Crest and Mission Grove
When you decide on your final destination out of Garden Grove, it’s a good idea to let your insurance company know about your new address. Insurers base their rates around your location—so it’s crucial they have the right information to calculate the right premium.
