City is awful, the roads are filled with pot holes. They really need to fix all the bumpy roads! But this is a horse town and the people are nice.

I love that Norco, California is a country living town in the middle of southern California. When you are in Norco, you feel like you have disappeared from the fast pace craziness of California. You can stop and smell the roses. Drive down main street and you see tons of cowboys and cowgirls riding their horses on the sides of the streets. Everyone knows everyone by name. The friendliness of this city is something you just don't come by anymore. Walk into a store and they greet you immediately, often by name. The service is top notch always. The small-town vibe without it being too small. Plus, who does not love a good old rodeo and fair. Norco has several of them throughout the year. It is simply amazing.
Norco is the ideal community and suburb, but with a little country twist to it. While not huge and sprawling like a major city, or even a moderately sized city, Norco offers a quiet suburban life with a rustic country feel. Affectionately named Horsetown U.S.A., Norco has a history with horses and it's horse trails for sidewalks shows it. The city offers multiple great schools, is family friendly, great cost of living and real estate when compared to the rest of southern California. All of these by nestled in a safety bubble, thanks to the local sheriff's department.
