Riverside County is the fourth largest county in the state in California, stretching nearly 200 miles across and comprising over 7,200 square miles of fertile river valleys, low deserts, mountains, foothills and rolling plains. Riverside County shares borders with densely populated Los Angeles, Imperial, Orange, San Diego, and San Bernardino Counties...extending from within 14 miles of the Pacific Ocean to the Colorado River.
Recent years have brought dramatic population growth to Riverside County. Between 1980 and 1990, the number of residents grew by over 76%...making Riverside the fastest-growing County in California. By 1992, the County was "home" to over 1.3 million residents...more than the entire population of 13 states, among them Maine, Nevada, Hawaii, and New Hampshire.
From the rolling hills of Temecula to the palm tree-lined streets of the Coachella Valley, Riverside County offers a growing job base, newly built designer homes and great schools. Use this link to find relevant information for residents. http://www.countyofriverside.us/
City of Perris
Perris is named in honor of Fred T. Perris, chief engineer of the California Southern Railroad. The California Southern connected through the city in the 1880s to build a rail connection between the present day cities of Barstow and San Diego.
CSR purchased the land from Southern Pacific Railroad in the Pinacate area for a town site. Local citizens offered to erect a depot, dig a well, and donate a number of lots to the railroad in exchange for establishing a station at the new town site.
The Perris station came online in April 1886. By 1887, six passenger trains and two freight trains stopped at Perris daily and rapid growth followed for several years. After storms repeatedly washed out the tracks in the Temecula Gorge, service to San Diego through this route ended.
Perris officially incorporated as a city in 1911. The City of Perris is located in the heart of Southern California, between San Diego and Los Angeles. Perris provides a diverse business market, personal and professional growth, affordable real estate, history and abundant recreational activities that together create a small-town atmosphere with a high-quality lifestyle. One of the fastest growing cities in California, Perris is a choice destination for families and businesses alike.

City Of Riverside
Riverside, California was originally developed after an investment company purchased the land in hopes of turning it into desirable property. The plans for a community were laid out in 1870 and became fully adopted when a large increase in population gladly accepted the plans.
Much of the increase in population to the area was based upon the ease of producing crops. The crop of choice for the original settlers was the citrus fruit, creating a boom in population, bringing people from all over the nation to try their luck.
The citrus industry enjoyed its boom during the early 20th century and continued for many more years. The city is based on one side of the Santa Ana River, which was an excellent source of water in close proximity to the farms.
Over the years, Riverside has continued to be a center for crops and such industries as aircraft engines, electronics, automotive equipment, paper products, and plastic.
There are many attractions in Riverside worth visiting while in the area. Some of them include the Riverside Metropolitan Museum, housing exhibits and artifacts of local history, the California Museum of Photography, the Heritage House, a restored 1891 home, and the California Citrus State Historic Park.
The city is home to many landmarks, including the Parent Washington Navel Orange Tree, planted in 1873 (one of two original orange trees in California), and the historic Mission Inn.
Riverside also is home to many fine educational institutions of higher education, ranging from community colleges to full universities. The major schools in the area include La Sierra University (1922), California Baptist College (1950), and University of California - Riverside (1954).
