      If you are looking for a city that does not have dense housing and is very safe, that is Norco. If you're looking for a city with community support, great schools, and houses that sit on 1/2 acre lots, with riding trails throughout the city, that is Norco. If you want your children involved with football, soccer or baseball, that is Norco. If you like having horses or a garden in your backyard, that is Norco. If you like a rural, quiet, lifestyle in a small town, that is Norco.
      But, if want nightlife, shops or "fancy" restaurants, don't live in Norco. If you hate dust, don't live in Norco. If you do not like animals, don't move to Norco. If you want your neighbors so close they can look through your windows, don't move to Norco. If you don't like saying "Hello" to your neighbor, don't move to Norco. Norco is not for everyone, and we're good with that!

      North Corona known as Norco is a horse community. There are no sidewalks when we walk our dogs. We live in Corona and Norco is across the street from us. Most homes are filthy and they do not keep up with the yards. Old and dusty community but great if you want the ranch style home and have horses. The horses and cows give off a bad smell, but you do know why you lived there. Housing is very cheap and almost no growth in this area. Schools are not the greatest, just look at the rankings. My friends say that Corona area is booming and is better than this small area of North Corona. There is nothing to do and it is hot during the summertime. There is no nightlife around in this dusty area. Small diners around but lack of huge shopping malls detract.

      I lived in Norco for a few years and it was a nice city to live in. The summers are very comfortable but it's a bit of a drive to get to the ocean. However, there are some good opportunities, especially for younger people. Entertainment and technology are a couple of big industries around Norco.

      If you're looking for education opportunities immediately in Norco, there are a couple of solid choices. Norco College and Sierra College are both in Norco. There's a lot of students in the so if you like to socialize and make new friends, you'll probably like it.

      Since the weather is always great here, there's a lot of places you can visit outdoors. Camping, picnics and exercise are just a few of the possibilities. Lake Matthews Estelle Mountain Reserve is located along the southern edge of the city and is the best area in Norco in my opinion. Whether you're a young professional or you already have an established career, Norco is a great choice.
