Riverside is located in the Inland Empire of California, beside the Santa Ana River. It is the seat of the Riverside County, after which it has been named. Riverside is known for being the birthplace of the citrus industry in California. Today, it is an important business and educational hub in southern California.
A City that Holds its Own
Riverside has experienced steady growth over the last few years. The University of California-Riverside, which is located to the north-east of the city, is responsible to a large extent for this growth. The University of California, Riverside, which is well-known for hosting the popular Riverside Sports Complex, attracts students from all over the state. The other prominent higher-education institutions in the area include the California Baptist University, La Sierra University, the UEI College, and the California Southern Law School.
Riverside is also a culturally and historically significant city. It hosts the Riverside Metropolitan Museum, the Fox Performing Arts Center and the California Citrus State Historic Park. It is home to the Parent Washington Navel Orange Tree, which is one of the two first navel trees in the state. Several popular festivals are hosted in Downtown Riverside each year – the most prominent is the Riverside Dickens Festival, which brings together people from the surrounding areas in celebration. In a state that has an unemployment rate of about 15%, every celebration should count for something.
The top employers in Riverside include the University of California, Riverside, Kaiser Permanente, and the county government. This is not much but there are still needs for storage units nevertheless.
