Riverside has it all. They have an active nightlife for those who like to go out and have fun with friends, or to meet new people. They also have great outdoor activities. Rubidoux mountain is a popular location for beginner hikers or experienced athletes looking for a nice day outside. The weather is always nice for a relaxing bike ride on the extensive bike trail, too. There are parks to have parties, picnics, or to play all day. Riverside is close to all the stores you need, and if you're looking to go on a shopping spree, the Tyler mall has got it all!

Riverside is growing city that strives in its people. I've lived in Riverside my whole life so I've seen how much its grown in the 20+ years. I have visited other cities in California, Nevada, and Washington and none of them compare to Riverside. There is so much to do and see in Riverside. Not to mention the food here! There's so many different types or restaurants from Thai, Indian, Salvadorian, Mexican, and more! I defiantly recommend people to come to Riverside and visit it's mission inn, UCR, Mt. Rubidoux, and restaurants.
Riverside, California is well known for the Orange groves and Art community, but there is more to Riverside than just that. In Riverside, there are amazing Hiking trails which are especially beautiful during the Winter! Riverside's hills become a dazzling sea of tall green grass that sway with the breeze, and if that is not enough, wildflowers bloom, puddles full of tadpoles and deep in the trenches, tree's and other tall plants extend out into the sun. One thing I would like to see changed here in Riverside, is the litter and graffiti. Walking up those trails, there are "spots" where young adults and adults like to relax. However, they do not pick up after themselves, and as nice it is to express oneself, vandalizing nature is not the place to do it.
