Riverside enjoys a Mediterranean climate, with dry, hot summers and wet, mild winters. It is home to the Fox Theater, which first showed Gone With The Wind, the world's largest paper cup, and the historic Mission Inn, among other things!
California is one of the nation's least walkable states, and the Riverside area is no exception. It is known as a smog belt, most likely because even near the center of the city, the metro area ranks only 49 out of 100 for walkability. If you can walk a little over half a mile, you are within reach of hardware stores, grocery stores, bookshops and drug stores. Over a mile walk is needed to get to restaurants, coffee shops, bars, movie theaters and clothing stores.

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.
