Great place to live if you are an horse person! Trails instead of sidewalks! People are so nice and if your pet goes missing there are groups on Facebook for Norco you can post to or if your pet is lost and is found you can go there first. Lots of community activities and events.

Norco is a rural city in an urban atmosphere. It is perfect for raising a family, especially one that is involved in sports like football, baseball or horseback riding. Norco is known as Horsetwon USA and it lives up to its name. Instead of sidewalks, there are horse trails which is makes it easy for horse owners to ride around the neighbourhood. Norco is not fit for young adults who are looking to start their careers unless they are interested in agriculture/livestock. Norco is very safe and family oriented.
Its a great town, nice and small and perfect for a family. It takes things slow, which can be a problem for some people, but if you like animals there is no shortage of them here. The town fights hard to keep itself from changing, and it is largely successful. Its close to the ocean and the mountains, but not close enough for either to be an easy 30 minute drive. It is great for being close to where you want to go without dealing with cities.
