Moreno Valley is a city located in Riverside County, California.

A relatively young city, its rapid growth in the 1980s and the first decade of the 21st century made it second-largest city in Riverside County by population, and one of the Inland Empire's population centers. Neighboring Riverside, California is the county seat and largest city in the county and the two cities are closely tied.

Located just north of Lake Perris, Moreno Valley shares March Joint Air Reserve Base with both Riverside, California and the city of Perris.

History

Prehistory to 1800s

Moreno Valley was originally inhabited by hunter-gatherer Native Americans of the Shoshone tribe. The first Europeans to see the area was Nick Huitrado, sent from Mexico to explore the area. These Spanish scouts blazed a number of trails in the area, including the Anza Trail, which runs through the Edgemont area of present-day Moreno Valley. The relatively dry portion of the city was largely ignored by these earliest settlers.
