Anza Reviews

Anza is a very rural town of about 8,000 people in Riverside County. I have been visiting family here since 1994 and have become a current resident. The town consists of young and old folks here, retirees and people that seek a quieter, less expensive place to live outside of Metro Orange County, Riverside and San Diego. The characters that make up the contingency of Anza are just that, characters. Free wheeling, free thinking and sometimes a wild bunch. Of course this sort of activity doesn't come without criminal behavior, sometimes. Of course in our world of instantaneous news, I am more aware of it now, whereas before it would have taken word of mouth or tomorrow's front page news on the daily rag to see what was going on. So, I guess, Anza is just a small version of Anytown, USA, just with a little more grittiness, and I'm not referring to the blowing dirt that gets in your teeth here!

Anza os a nice place overall. You can take hikes and breathe fresh air. Anza has tons of beautiful scenery and its you can feel safe in Anza. There are little market in town and there are some restraunts that you co u of enjoy but there os also a park.
My experience in Anza, CA has been tremendous. I have been living here for 10 years and I would not change anything about my hometown. The town itself is great and community friendly.
