Review of Rubidoux, California

general opinion
Star Rating - 2/14/2013
I grew up in Glen Avon, CA during the 1940's. About 10 miles out of down town Riverside. It was a perfect place to grow up. Perfect weather, small community where everybody knew everybody and anybody would help you if you needed it. We walked up Avon St and down Glen Street on Halloween night. The only other street was 44th street besides Mission Blvd on one side and Galena St on the side. I ended up marrying my husband who lived only a block from my home at that time in 1960 on Union Ave. We've been married for almost 53 yrs now. But have lived in several different states. There was one little grocer at the end of Avon ST on Mission Blvd. A couple of beer bars (the Circle Inn) and Dels bar and grill, and a couple of gas stations. There was a bakery owned by the Deutchmans.That was his name and they were from Holland and Dutch. A fire station and a liquer store all on Mission Blvd. Oh ya I almost forgot another small grocer and a mexican resturant across the street from each other. The owners of that grocer were shot and killed and stole their money during thr 1970's (I think). It was Trudy's market.

I had the same bus Driver for school as my brother had 20 yrs earlier. The kids all loved him hanging on his arms and legs. And he loved the kids, also. His name was Steve at the one and only Glen Avon School.
