Canyon Crest Reviews
I love Riverside it's just expensive to live in and to find a home one can actually afford in the middle-low-class segment is difficult for a safe area. There are areas around here that are beautiful (Victoria Ave) and make you love living here but other areas (Casa Blanca, Cridge St, etc) that make you feel unsafe if you're walking around and not protected inside a vehicle.
It's really not a bad area but it's getting more crowded every year. It's ideally located, one hour from the mountains, beach and desert but traffic is horrible on the freeways so it usually takes longer than an hour. More homeless and petty crime seems to be on the increase. Very, very hot in the summer like the desert. Ready for a change to some cooler weather.
There are bike lines that are there and then disappear depending on what street you are on and go to, but the safety for bicyclists is higher around UCR because of the prevalence of them. There is some consistent public transportation in the form of the bus system (RTA). Parts are walkable; others not so much (hills, long distance between housing and other amenities.) I live in a walkable segment of the area. There are some places throughout Riverside that are high traffic and congestion during the predictable parts of the workday due to the geography and layout of the roads. There are only so many ways to get from one end to another.
