Riverside, CA City Review

Living in the large city of Riverside in California, I was able to experience its rich and diverse cultures as well as live in an environment where modernistic structures and historic buildings coexist. Here are some things you need to know when considering on moving to the city and why you should live in Riverside, California. Moving to the city of Riverside, I was amazed with a variety of landmarks that the city had, such as the historical Mission Inn, which know goes by the name of Mission Inn Hotel & Spa, and the artistic Riverside County Historic Courthouse. I was also able to visit the famous Riverside Fox Theater, which was the venue for the first showing of the movie Gone with the Wind in 1939. During my stay in the city, I've also learned to cherish the magnificent and awe-inspiring arts and cultural museums distributed within Riverside. Some of the most famous museums I visited were the March Field Air Museum, which exhibits more than 70 aircraft including Lockheed P-38L Lightning replica and the Boeing B-29A Superfortress Flagship 500, and the Riverside Metropolitan Museum, which housed historical and anthropological art worth seeing. Living in Riverside, California, I had no boring or dull moments during my stay. I was able to enjoy various special occasions that the city is famous for, including the bright Riverside Festival of Lights, which is centered around the historical Mission Inn Hotel & Spa. During Thanksgiving, I also experienced the Festival of Trees, which is celebrated at Riverside Convention Center since the 1990s. During my stay at Riverside, I also observed a diverse community that comprises of 28 neighborhoods. These communities include Arlington, the Presidential Park, Ramona, Victoria and Wood Streets. Within the city's vicinity, communities have established several religious organizations, churches and events, such as the Easter Sunrise Service done yearly. A disadvantage I found out when living in the city of Riverside is the considerably higher rate of air pollution. In fact, Riverside has been deemed as "smog belt" due to their above-average degree of pollution present in the area.

Commute from Riverside to Anaheim? Does anyone know how long the commute would be during the morning rush hour from Riverside to Anaheim (close to Disneyland), then back to Riverside during the afternoon rush hour? I know it's about a 35 mile drive, but I'm wondering how long that drive would take in rush hour? Thnx!
