Vidiot said:I really love Riverside. I took a class at Riverside Community College last summer, and I enjoyed getting to know the city. It is a very distinguished place, as it does not really feel like it's part of the "LA blob" so to speak. Riverside genuinely feels like it's own individual mid-sized city and has its own identity. Spend some time there.. you will definately get the feeling of a self-sustained mini metro with its own unique history and culture, quite distanced from what we know as the giant LA entity. Nice historic architecure, dense, and independent are all ways I can describe Riverside. San Bernardino... not so much.
Isn't it expected to be different? Being in a different county and probably in the future it will be grouped in its own S.B. Metro area stat. By the way, is the City Of Riverside larger/smaller than the City Of S.B.? And what's the ethnic makeup? I would like to explore more of the metro area anyway, so what is their to see in either places? I used to regularly take the commuter train up from NYC to explore Poughkeepsie of all places, and people thought I was nuts. :crazy2:
