Overview

Corona means “crown” in Spanish, and while the City of Corona does not have a king or queen, regal is the perfect word to describe its Victorian era downtown and vintage estate homes that dot many of the community’s historical neighborhoods. Corona is also known as the Circle City, for its circular Grand Avenue that surrounds the heart of downtown. Originally the center of the state’s citrus industry, today Corona is a bustling metropolitan community home to nearly 150,000 people, and serves as the western gateway to Riverside County.
