ABOUT WESTERN RIVERSIDE COUNTY

Once a hub of citrus growing and packing centered on the county seat of Riverside, the region now is home to more than two million people, and many of whom commute to jobs in Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties from fast-growing new cities such as Moreno Valley, Temecula and Murrieta, as well as the older cities of Riverside, Corona, Hemet, San Jacinto and Perris.

The area is served by the University of California, Riverside; three colleges of the Riverside Community College District and two campuses of Mt. San Jacinto Community College, as well as by La Sierra University, and California Baptist University. The economy of the region has expanded beyond its post-World War II manufacturing base to become a goods movement hub and emerging technology center.
