Riveside is a very safe place. It has a great school system which is one of the reasons my family still lives here. I wouldn't say the people are actually friendly, more snobbish. However, you can find a few you really like. The house are pretty and the surrounding area is nice. Horrible taxes. Seriously outrageous.

Small close knit community, everyone knows everyone. There are a lot of kids, I have many close friends that I have known since I was 5.
It's a small community so there isn't much to do. There is plenty of natural life and the town is very safe. It is easy to get lost here and the taxes are stupidly high. The people in general are very friendly and the small downtown does have some worth.
