Because of the sky-rocketing cost of living in Los Angeles, Corona is sometimes thought of as a bedroom community for people working in L.A. But Corona has a lot more going for it than affordable housing. With a heritage spanning over a century, a population of 154,000, more than 394 acres of parks, a historic downtown district, and iconic cultural and educational centers, Corona is home to a diverse, well educated, family-oriented community. Recently, businesses in Northern Orange County have been relocating to Corona to be close to their work force and take advantage of a favorable economic climate.
Some of the things we love about Corona:
The most famous guitar in the world is made right here in Corona. The Stratocaster and the Telecaster fueled the Rock Revolution and are still favored by the best guitarists to this day. Take a tour of the factory, or stop by the Visitor Center. Fender also gives back to the community with its “Kids Rock Free” foundation, and offers tours to groups at the Fender Museum of Music and the Arts.
The Corona Public Library
With a history dating back well over a hundred years, the Corona Public Library has had many different buildings, but only one mission: serve as a vital center for informational and educational services, programs and cultural activities in the city of Corona. The Corona Public Library has kept pace with the times and provides way more than books-on-loan to its citizens: classes, displays and exhibits, literacy assistance, and support for local genealogical research, to name just a new.
Founded by actor Randolph Scott in 1927, and frequented by Hollywood royalty over the years, the city has grown up around Cresta Verde, but it is still one of Southern California’s most valued golf courses.
Grand Boulevard Circle Historic District
The layout of the original city of Corona is unusual in that there is a perfectly circular street called Grand Boulevard that encloses the historic downtown district, which is a normal grid. The circle is one mile in diameter, and encompasses many stately homes that are on the National Register of Historic Places.
There are a lot of reasons to love Corona. Although it is not fair to call it a bedroom community, there are many lovely homes, and therefore, it must be said, a lot of bedrooms. And whether they were constructed in 1913 or 2013, when they get cluttered, there is a place right here in Corona to turn for relief — Dollar Self Storage.
We have two locations in Corona: Dollar Self Storage on Lincoln Avenue and Dollar Self Storage on Third Street, which also offers RV storage, if you occasionally like to get out of that four bedroom castle and hit the road!
