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.

Corona enjoys a multitude of shopping experiences with big box, specialty, and mom-and-pop retail located all over the city, and for a concentrated retail experience, Corona offers two dynamic retail and entertainment plazas: The Crossings at Corona and The Shops at Dos Lagos, both conveniently located just off the 1-15.
The Crossings at Corona offers exciting, high-end and family-style restaurants, entertainment and more than 65 stores for your shopping pleasure.
The Shops at Dos Lagos is located on the historical site of the Temescal Tin Mines and the Butterfield Stage Coach Route. The community continues to be attracted to this center for the elegant and attentive retail, dining and entertainment.
Corona, California is an average suburban city. However, the competition between the schools and the schools themselves are extremely high, so the education here is really well put together. There is not much in turns of "night life" but there are many great places to shop and eat, for example; The Crossings at Corona. Many great shops and restaurants. The police department here at Corona are respectful and provide safety for the city. There are many parks for children to play and is a generally sanitary place. The cost of living is very high and job opportunities do not come up as often and commuting here can be tricky because of the immense amount of traffic in the morning and afternoon commutes. Besides those downsides, Corona is a great city to live.
