Corona has been my home for the past 16 years and has grown along with me. It has offered me multiple opportunities to expand my love for knowledge. I remember the trips to the Corona Public Library with my Dad. There is a diversity of adventures to explore in this one place. This was where I specifically noticed a painting hanging above the checkout area. It was a woman with an orange dress that flowed outward into a circular racetrack. The one painting introduced me to the rich history that we have in Corona. Corona was home to an amazing racetrack along with a thriving citrus industry! Overall, I am proud to be born and raised in an amazing city that offers so much.

Corona is a very diverse community that offers something for everyone's interests. When tragedies happen that are made known to the community like a case of child abuse, the community came together to tie blue ribbons around the entire city to allow for awareness and prevention of child abuse. One thing I would change about Corona is that I wish it had more community activities that allowed for adults and children to get out and get active!
Corona is a great place to raise children, as it is a safe suburb (unless you go past Sixth street) with some great high schools. The high school and club sports in Corona get pretty competitive and are a positive aspect of growing up in Corona. The high school football rivalry is intense and it is always fun to go to a Centennial football game on a Friday night.
There isn't a very good array of diverse and healthy food options around here, and I always find myself eating at home or driving to another city for food. I have to say that there are some pretty awesome Mexican food places, though. You can never go wrong with Carne Asada fries from Albertos! In Corona, there isn't as many options for entertainment and recreation as there would be in a metropolitan city, other than the Crossings and Dos Lagos shopping centers or if you join club or recreational sports.
