    Its fun, and the people are extremely nice. I enjoy spending time with my friends, and its not the location that matters but the people you spend time with that does. And the people here are the best, every day is a new adventure, just be prepared to travel more at night, since it does get hot during the day and cold during the winter.

    The close drive to everything is great! Riverside downtown also has a bunch of things to do, even though most people don't really know about it. It's a hidden gem, you can pretty much just go sightseeing down there, and it's really pretty.
