Serving All of Moreno Valley
Although Moreno Valley is just over 30 years old, this picturesque city has grown quickly over its three decades of existence. With a population of over 200,000, Moreno Valley is now the second-largest city in Riverside County and the 112th largest city in the United States. Its popularity is due in part to its geography. Moreno Valley is flanked by the San Bernardino Mountains and Valley on the North and Riverside, Los Angeles, and Orange County on the West. Nestled at the base of Box Springs Mountain, Moreno Valley features exceptional views from every corner. The city is also in the middle of an economic boom, but with a median household income of $54,918, the area that encompasses zip codes 92551-92557 is also home to a large population of middle class residents.
