Riverside is yet another great California city that you’ve probably never heard of (California is so big, it’s hard to keep track). Located by the scenic Santa Ana river, the city got it’s start over 100 years ago with the citrus industry, but the orange groves are long since gone. Riverside now has a thriving and diverse economy, which is drawing people to the city, and many of them need a short term apartment rental.
Riverside Short Term Apartment: Which One Is Mine?
It looks like all the developers in the “Inland Empire” had the same great idea: Let’s build apartments in the classic California style, white stucco and with a clay tile roof. There’s stucco and tile as far as the eye can see. Thank goodness for GPS, which will get you back to your own Riverside short term apartment. What Riverside lacks in architectural diversity it makes up for in industrial diversity. You can come to Riverside to work in food processing, health equipment manufacture, high-technology, advanced machining, and the list goes on.
Are You Ready for the Weekend?
Interesting jobs and decent pay; what’s not to like? But all work and no play is dull. One answer to the question of what to do on the weekend: Palm Springs! Only a short drive away, Palm Springs offers a quick getaway from your Riverside short term apartment.
Riverside is close to the charming low-desert town of Palm Springs. A fraction of the size of Riverside, it offers a small town charm and welcoming personality. It has an eclectic mix of upscale boutiques and fine dining. In the spring the famous Coachella music festival is nearby, with something for everybody to enjoy. Palm Springs also sports the world’s only three-story high statue of Marilyn Monroe (a great photo spot). Remember, Palm Springs is just a quick trip from your Riverside short term apartment, so you won’t be burning a lot of time and gas getting there and back.
When you’re done shopping, nearby are the beautiful desert parks (don’t forget to bring water!) of Anza-Borrego and Joshua Tree with plenty of hiking out to real palm springs, and rock-climbing opportunities.
