South Corona is another affluent area that is all medium to high wealth suburban tract homes with many parks. El Cerrito is the poorer side of town, but still home to many huge mansions.

Get around edit

Like all of Southern California, the best way to get anywhere in this place is by car. The city is served by three freeways (15,91,71) and has many major streets to guide you through the city. Since Corona is in the LA metro area, traffic can get pretty bad, heading in all directions (east to Riverside, north to Ontario, west to LA/Orange County, and south to San Diego).

The local bus system, Corona Cruiser, has two lines.

Buy edit

  • 1 The Crossings, Cajalco Rd and the 15 Freeway. A great shopping center with stores such as Target, Kohls, Sports Authority, and Best Buy. This center also features many restaurants and a movie theater complex.
  • 2 The Shops at Dos Lagos (Wierick Rd and the 15 Freeway). Another shopping center just another freeway exit away from The Crossings. It features more upscale shopping and dining. One can even take a walk around its two man made lakes.

Stay safe edit

Although generally a safe area, Corona has a few parts that should be avoided during certain times. The downtown area has a concentration of homeless people that should be avoided at night. Also, the community of El Cerrito, which isn't officially part of Corona, should also be avoided at night on foot. It consists of a single major road with many poverty stricken homes. However, both of these areas are perfectly safe when in a vehicle and are nothing compared to the nearby cities of Los Angeles, Riverside, and Anaheim.
