About Corona California
Corona CA is located at the upper end of the Santa Ana River Canyon and was founded in 1896 during the height of the citrus boom in Southern California. The city’s name is derived (and its nickname, The Circle City) from the layout of its streets, with a standard grid enclosed by the circular Grand Boulevard where three international road racing events took place in 1913, 1914 and 1916. Corona, CA homes for sale are highly desired because the city is located at the 15 and 91 freeways and close to the 71 and 241 freeways making it an ideal for commuters working in Orange County and Los Angeles.
Prior to the 1980s, Corona was an agricultural community with citrus orchards, ranches, and dairy farms. Rising real estate prices in Los Angeles and Orange counties made the area's cheaper land desirable to developers. As a result, in the 1990s Corona had become a major City in the Inland Empire with Corona CA homes for sale increasing rapidly. The completion of the 71 Freeway (Chino Valley Freeway) linked Corona to the Pomona and San Gabriel Valleys bringing more growth and easier commutes. Along with the commute, many Orange County residents have moved into the area taking advantage of the Corona, CA real estate with newer larger homes.
Eastvale is located on former dairy land near the 60, 71, 91 and 15 freeways. It is a beautiful new city and is growing rapidly because of the ideal location for commuting and home values per square foot. Eastvale, CA homes for sale are in great demand. The planned communities are exceptional and well maintained. Eastvale is a new city in Riverside County. Residents have a community website and have regular community meetings regarding their schools, code enforcements, safety and community development.
