The Inland Empire Metro areas of Riverside and Winchester offer affordable yet high-quality living options, increasingly becoming some of Southern California's most popular residential locations. Living in the Inland Empire presents itself as a suburban lifestyle, but is offset by its rolling agricultural farmland and countryside surroundings, promoting a rural life without the compromise of isolation. Add to this a commutable distance from Los Angeles, and you'll find the Inland Empire Metro area offers the best of both worlds for professionals and city workers seeking a restful balance.
Particularly suited for a more laid-back life are neighborhoods in Chino Hills which have a village-like feel with beautiful views of the San Gabriel Mountains. Chino Hills is also notable for its development of golf courses and relaxed culture. Picturesque living is also to be found in the neighborhoods of Lake Elsinore, which as the name suggests is a lakeside city. With mountains on one side and a lake on the other, residents are blessed every day with natural beauty.
Winchester is a top consideration for a truly rural living environment but if country living isn't for you then neighborhoods in Corona, with a more town-esque lifestyle may suit you. Larger than Chino Hills, Corona area enjoys a reputation as a bigger city with a small town attitude.
Tempted by the cost of affordable city living, families are drawn to the neighborhoods in Riverside.

Though smaller in population than Moreno Valley or Riverside, Temecula is a well-known tourist hotspot and draws people in through charm over size. Daily life is catered for by a provision of good schools and job opportunities too making for a perfect home.
