Renting a Cheap Apartment in Riverside

Riverside is located in inland Southern California and next to the Santa Ana River. The city became home to California’s citrus industry after navel oranges planted there in the 1870s flourished. An early tourist destination, Riverside attracted visitors with its warm sunny days, fragrant orange groves and development of early resorts. Many of the early homes and ranches are preserved today. Now the city relies on the University of California Riverside, local schools and county and city government as its primary employers. Riverside is home to the world’s largest paper cup. The city’s Festival of Lights is a popular holiday attraction for locals and visitors alike.
