I had moved to Riverside when I was about 4 years old and lived ever since my overall experience has been great. I would prefer to move to another area just because I like to explore different areas. If I were to move I would like to move back because this is the place I call home. The ranking of this area should be on the top of list due to it being a great place to be raise. The environment is will clean and the people here are very friendly.
Crime does not really happen here in riverside. As much as other countries or areas. I can say that it is a very safe environment to live in.
