"Location, Location, Location"

Corona is centrally located within 1 hour of almost everything you could want without the higher prices. Beaches (San Diego or Orange County), Wine Country, Legoland, Disneyland, Big Bear, Lake Arrowhead, Palm Springs.
Shopping is abundant. Lots of Options for Dining. Corona/Norco School District is consistently rated in the top for the State.
Corona is within close proximity of Ontario International Airport and many distribution facilities on the 15 freeway corridor that provide employment.
Pros
  • Great School District
  • Centrally Located
  • Dining, Shopping, Healthcare are easy to access
Cons
  • Traffic is heavy on the 91/15 Freeways
  • Some areas have higher crime rates (check with local law enforcement)
  • Summer months can bring down air quality

"Downhill Due to Over Building"

I have lived in Corona for 15 years. The only reason we are staying now is due to my kids school and friends. Unfortunately Corona is having a building surge that is creating major traffic and congestion. The city streets were not built for so many cars. It takes forever to get anywhere within the city. Forget trying to go out during rush-hour. Since the 91 fwy and 15 fwy are such a mess Corona has become a drive thru city with non-Coronians using our city to get from one fwy to the other during high traffic times. We have no stores worth shopping or original restaurants. Chino has 90% more and better places than Corona. The smog is also unbelievable. It is so bad you can't see the mountains. There is always a thick haze. I would not recommend anyone moving here. If it's because you can't afford anywhere else and are ok with traffic and smog...welcome.
Pros
  • Nice people
  • Great School District
Cons
  • Traffic throughout the city is bad.
  • No nice restaurants.
  • Some areas have higher crime rates (check with local law enforcement)
  • Summer months can bring down air quality
  • Traffic is heavy on the 91/15 Freeways
