Riverside Real Estate
The most populous city in the Inland Empire is also the county’s namesake: Riverside. Located next to the Santa Ana River, the city is surrounded by picturesque mountains that often are snowcapped during the winter months. Only about 60 miles east of Los Angeles and a mere 47 miles from the coastal beach cities of nearby Orange County, Riverside is an affordable and popular place to call home.
Founded in the early 1870’s, Riverside is considered the birthplace of the California citrus industry and home to the beautiful landmark Mission Inn, which is the largest Mission Revival Style building in the United States. It is also home to the Riverside National Cemetery which serves as the final resting place for thousands of United States Military Veterans. Riverside is a bustling mecca of culture and cosmopolitan pursuits including some of the finest restaurants in the Inland Empire, world-class entertainment and sports venues along with museums, libraries and Native American enrichment centers, along with superb shopping malls.
Education is extremely important and Riverside is the proud home of the University of California at Riverside, and Riverside Community College along with numerous other vocational and community-based educational facilities. In recent years the Historic Mission Inn District has been beautifully restored and the downtown area surrounding it has become a charming and eclectic Beaux-Arts style hub of business and recreation. The newly remodeled Fox Theater has featured international headliners from Sheryl Crow to B.B. King and is within walking distance of a modern legal complex that includes state and federal courts.
Residents have the option of a particularly vast array of housing choices including equestrian estates, chic apartments and townhouses, luxurious mansions and estates, charming Victorian and turn-of-the-century homes and plenty of comfortable and spacious senior complexes. Surrounded by an updated freeway system and plenty of business and commerce opportunities, Riverside is a smart choice for any age group or any budget.
