The city police is very strict but I guess that's what makes it very safe compared to LA or SF. There is private security in the Downtown Area and a citywide business camera program to capture thieves.

The soaring buildings, palm-lined streets, and golden rush era buildings, paired with vibrant nightlife, luxury shopping, and world-class dining, make the city/county a sight to behold and be explored.

Riverside certainly dazzles with its uber-modern design showcased in sights like the Mission Inn, and with its over-the-top attractions like the Riverside Food Lab mall, El Paseo Mall, and County Fair/Coachella and outer cities within Riverside County (like Palm Springs and Temecula). But it wasn't the glitzy nightclubs and crowd-pleasing brunches that won me over, it was the traditional architecture, Californian culture, and delicious pistachio dates. So if you're looking for a more traditional slice of life, here are some of my favorite places you should visit in Riverside.

A city with a whole bunch of Old Money. When I visited the streets were clean and I didn’t see any homeless camps in sight.
