The Galleria Tyler Mall, located in Riverside, California off the 91 fwy. at the Tyler exit, is one of the best shopping malls around. Although Victoria Gardens, located in Ontario, California, has slowly been taking customers away from Tyler since its grand opening nearly two years ago, the Tyler Galleria is still the place to shop in Riverside. With its numerous big department stores (Macy's, Nordstrom, JC Penny) and countless other smaller stores, it is easy to see that this is where it's at. From athletic clothing to formal wear, to jewelry and candy, to swords and a large food court, you'll find it all at the Tyler Galleria.
PROS: Many, many stores
CONS: Usually very crowded
Upon eating dinner at the Malibu Beach Inn (in Malibu, California located on the Pacific Coast Hwy just across from the pier) a few weeks ago, I feel it is my duty to warn the world of this completely unsatisfactory dining facility. 1) It smells like a sewer line broke at the city dump. 2) Outdoor seating is better at Burger King. 3) All two items on the menu sounded sketchy. 4) I thought the mountain cliff was going to fall down on me at any moment. 5) I ordered a Tuna Melt...not two pieces of moldy bread smothered in grease and spoiled cheese. 6) Anyone ever heard of customer service before?...Well they must have missed the memo. That is all.
CONS: Everything you can think of

The Woodcrest Christian School System, located in the Woodcrest part of Riverside, California, has one of the best reputations around as far as quality of both education and people. With its relatively small student body population (under 400 high school and around 200 middle school), this facility offers an outstanding learning environment, unmatched by any other public or private schools around. The teachers here are more than qualified in their areas of teaching, and every one of them shares a passion for teaching that so many schools are in need of. Tuition is not cheep (though it won't break you), but the level of education and the life changing experiences your son or daughter will receive from here are worth every penny of it.
PROS: Everything aforesaid and more
CONS: Not many. No Football team or water polo. That's about it.
