Renter's Guide to Riverside

Part of the Greater Los Angeles area, Riverside offers great affordability and convenience, while still being very accessible to places like San Diego and Los Angeles.

That makes it a great place for families, young professionals, or anyone else who wants big city amenities without big city hassles and prices. Forbes even ranked it the 8th coolest city in the US.

Size-wise, Riverside is 98 square miles wide, which makes it roughly half the size of San Francisco and just 20% the size of Los Angeles.

It's located about 60 miles from LA and 107 miles from San Diego, which makes day trips to either city an option for road trippers.

Riverside features a semi-arid climate – summers are hot and dry, while winters are mild and rainy. With its distance from the coast, you don't get those nice ocean breezes you get in some of the other major cities in California.

Average temperatures in the summer usually fall in the 90s, but often get into the 100s. Winters have average lows in the low 40s and average highs in the upper 60s.

Cost of Living in Riverside, CA

Is Riverside wallet friendly?

It definitely is compared to bigger and more expensive cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Dinner for two at a mid-range restaurant will cost you about $50, and you can add a domestic beer to the tab for $3 a pop.

For utilities, you're looking at about $205 a month, which includes electric, water, and heating. That's quite a bit higher than the nationwide average of $147.

If you want to offset some of the damage to your budget, you can save money with Riverside's public transportation system. The Riverside Transit Agency offers bus services for $1.50 a ride, while Metrolink has a rail system that runs throughout Riverside, Los Angeles, and surrounding areas for $3 a ride.

    Living in Riverside

    An easy way to examine the pros and cons of living in Riverside is to compare it to some of the nearby big cities, like Los Angeles and San Francisco.

    It's got the same warm, sunny weather, but it's further from the coast and beach – though still close enough for weekend beach trips.

    What Riverside lacks in big city amenities, culture, and nightlife, it makes up for with less crowds, less traffic (and better parking), and lower prices.

    In other words, it's close enough to the action, but far enough for you to enjoy a more affordable, laid back lifestyle.

    Things to do in Riverside

    Alright, so you're in Riverside. What exactly is there to do now?

    It depends what you're looking for. Outdoorsmen and nature lovers will enjoy walking through Mount Rubidoux Park, taking in the sites at the California Citrus State Park, or – for the more adventurous – whitewater rafting.

    The city has a few golf courses nearby too, if you want to get in a quick 9 or 18 holes.

    Culture and history buffs will want to check out the Fox Performing Arts Center, March Field Air Museum, Mission Inn Museum, or Riverside National Cemetery.

    And if you just want a little ol' fashioned family fun, there are a couple cool drive-in theatres in town, like Van Buren Drive-In Theatre. Or you and the kids can cool off at The Cove Waterpark.

    If you're around town during the holiday season, Riverside's annual Festival of Lights is a must see. With over 5 million lights on display, it's ranked among the best of the best light shows in the whole country.

    Of course, Riverside is also so close to the beach and other cities like San Diego and Los Angeles that you can take advantage of what they have to offer too, like their pro sports teams. Make sure you check out a Los Angeles Lakers, LA Dodgers, or San Diego Chargers game if you have the chance.

    Employment and Economy in Riverside, CA

    Why did Riverside see a population growth of over 30% between 2000 and today? Because it's a great place to live and build a career in.

    Many people choose to commute to one of the various nearby cities, like Los Angeles. But Riverside itself has an abundance of employment options, particular in manufacturing, education, and government.

    The city's also got a rich agricultural history. In fact, it was responsible for the birth of the citrus industry in the US, after the first seedless oranges were planted here way back in the late 1800s.
