Named for its location along side the Santa Ana River, Riverside is a part of what is called the Inland Empire in Southern California. Close enough to Orange County and Los Angeles, it is home to many people who commute but it is an area rich with its own history.
Early on, Riverside was the first site for commercial growing oranges in California. The first orange trees were planted in 1871 which evolved into the area becoming one of the main suppliers of citrus fruits. That first tree still lives on a traffic island at the corners of Magnolia and Arlington and it still bears fruit.
Riverside was a wealthy area and is known for being the first locations in California for both a golf course and a polo field.
Climbing Mt. Rubidoux
There are four historical and art museums in Riverside as well as a impressive botanical garden center. Hiking and biking are available in the Box Springs Nature Preserve, but a climb to the top of Mt. Rubidoux is worth the effort for the sunset views alone.

I'm looking for a safe area of Riverside for my son to get an apartment. He is attending CBU and would like it in that vicinity, if it safe. Any ideas?
As far as the safety is concerned, the safest place is around the campus because safety guards always patrol the campus. It means the farther you are from the campus, the more it is dangerous. So you should try to find an off campus housing that is near the university. Presidential Park and Ramona area will be good place to find a safety apartment.
