Corona is in sunny, southern California, in Riverside County. Since it’s only about fifty miles from downtown Los Angeles and forty miles from Laguna Beach, there’s easy access to the big city. This town of 150,000 gets hot; in the summer, average temperatures top out at around 93 degrees Fahrenheit but it can get as hot as 114 degrees.
Even though most people tend to use their cars to get around Corona, public transportation is certainly available. For errands and fun in the immediate area, the Riverside Transit Agency provides bus services for the city and its neighbors to the east. When traveling west, the Metrolink commuter rail connects Corona to Los Angeles and beyond. The city is also home to plenty of bike routes if cycling is your preferred mode of transportation. While Corona does have a municipal airport, international travel is easy with the Ontario International Airport less than a half an hour north of the city.
