Corona is a good city to live in overall. I neither live in the expensive neighborhoods, nor poorer neighborhoods, but am living in an average area, and it feels safe. There are jobs available in Corona for those who are willing to work hard in minimum wage employment that are nearby. Stores are within driving distance, but rarely within walking distance. Transportation can be an issue living near the 91 freeway, so if streets can be taken, they usually are. During certain periods of the day it's not too bad if you're going the right way in traffic. The downside to living in Corona is that you usually have to visit another city to spend money on entertainment and gifts, as there isn't a mall or outlet in Corona to visit.

Corona used to be a small suburb that has started booming! It's the perfect place to raise a family. Corona parks are usually filled with k-12 sports year round. There isn't a nightlife or much to do as far as entertainment, but it is the gateway to Downtown riverside, Orange county, San Diego and Palm Springs. Corona is truly at the center of everything!
I moved to Corona in 2002 and I absolutely love it. I've met great friends, been blessed by neighbors and enjoyed the activities available in the city. While it's a big city in the county of Riverside, they do their part in giving it a small-town feel. They have a 4th of July parade and do fireworks at the local park. We're blessed with amazing community workers and a police force that is unmatched. I'm grateful to live in Corona and look forward to 12 more years!
