About the County of Riverside

With rivers, mountain peaks, deserts and fertile valleys, Riverside County offers diversity that few locations can match. More than two million people live in Riverside County, taking advantage of affordable housing, nearby beaches, mountains, hiking and bike trails, the Wine Country near Temecula and resorts that offer oases in the desert.

The county is working to diversify beyond the housing industry that has driven the region's economy for years. Transportation corridors – highways, airports and rail lines – support Southern California's shipping connection to Asia, a vital link for California and the rest of the nation.

California's fourth largest county by population is expanding its economy, working to make Riverside County as business-friendly as possible and using health and recreations strategies to make the county a healthier place for residents. Each year, millions visit the county to take advantage of the glorious desert winter, attend the Riverside County Fair and National Date Festival, the Balloon and Wine Festival, the Palm Springs International Film Festival, the Coachella and Stagecoach mega-concerts, the Paribas Open at the Indian Wells Tennis Center and the Humana Challenge, the golf tournament formerly known as the Bob Hope Classic. All those, combined with a rich cultural heritage and frontier history, make Riverside County a great place live, work or visit.
