The City of Riverside, California, is an exciting, diverse, urban center situated in the heart of Southern California. The City of Riverside (pop. 270,000) is the county seat of 7,000-square-mile Riverside County (pop. 1.6 million), and is the largest city in one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the United States.
The City of Riverside is characterized by its visionary, strategic, innovative, and inclusive approach to meeting the high standard of services citizens want. The City is assuredly positioning itself as a preeminent "creative city" for the 21st century. In just the past few years, the City of Riverside has launched community-driven visioning and strategic planning processes, including a General Plan update, significantly redeveloped its beautiful, historic downtown, which is anchored by the world famous Historic Mission Inn Hotel, launched one of two downtown wireless malls in California, and embraced multiple green-oriented environmental strategies. The City also boasts four institutions of higher learning, with a student population of over 40,000.
Riverside's proximity to larger cities like Los Angeles and San Diego, as well as the mountains and beaches of the region attract many people. But what surprises new visitors is the city's distinct sense of place; an identity that delineates it from the suburban sprawl that otherwise defines much of the region. Riverside is a vibrant, yet peaceful city of strong, affordable neighborhoods. A multi-cultural city of arts and culture. And a thriving city full of economic opportunity.
Inc. Magazine has just identified Riverside as the #2 best place in the country for entrepreneurs to start their business
