“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
Perhaps most famous as the final resting place of Etta James, Woodcrest and Orangecrest are up-and-coming neighborhoods in East Riverside. Though mostly a suburban, family-oriented community, the city draws crowds of thousands during Halloween to witness "The Halloween House," created by a Disney engineer who has a flair for amusing displays. The area's new shopping centers feature local Mexican food, new parks with basketball courts, swings and slides. Gless Ranch, the most popular purveyor of oranges around here, hosts a booth in this neighborhood.
