Best large city in the area. w/ Gridlock traffic - 12/23/2018
Temecula is really pretty nice place, it has everything you need and most of it has modern buildings. They generally take care of it, so it looks fresh. Compared to other places around, Temecula is the most desirable place to be. All of the other cities around can be really nasty. Murrietta, Hemet, Lake Elsinore are all just nasty compared to Temecula. South of Temecula, it gets really bad. San Marcos, Vista, Escondido. Lots of Apartments and poor Hispanics in those areas. Fallbrook is the only small town that is decent thats in the area. Here is the negative about Temecula. People and traffic. Putting aside the fact that the I-15 is Hell, the Temecula main streets are also jammed often. But hey, you chose SoCal and thats what you get. Bottom line: Best larger city in the area, if you like this area. (I personally liked smaller Fallbrook better.) Weather is a bit more extreme than say Fallbrook. Hotter highs and lower lows. Had a big snow storm awhile back that was a Super rare Read More

Life in Temecula - 10/19/2016
We have been here since 1987 and have loved it. Now, almost 30 years later, it has grown to traffic congestion, tract after tract of huge homes on tiny lots and still no real 'career' jobs. We still love the beauty of the area, the central location to everything from beach to mountains to desert, but it is not small business-friendly (Riverside County in general), and promotes chain stores, which people love here. We just love our neighborhood and our home in the very southern tip (used to be San Diego County years ago) of the city, but we are planning, if things work out, to move back to the Monterey Bay/Carmel area within the next 5 years because of the weather being cooler, the people being more 'creative/artistic/nature-loving' and the more laid-back feeling. It's a tough, tough town to make a living in; people mostly either have 1-2 hour commute or struggle in small businesses. Yes, chains like Starbucks and Target/Wal-Mart rule here. Sad but true. We have loved being Read More

Temecula, CA: Still a jewel. - 12/19/2014
Temecula is one of the best run cities in Southern California. I moved here over a decade ago when the population was about 60,000. The city is about 30 square miles and has its neighbor, Murrieta to the north. Both cities now have populations of about 100,000 for a total of 200,000 regionally. The good that comes with that is all the ammenities an area of that size brings, such as shopping, dining and entertainment. The bad, of course is increased traffic, but the crime rate here remains quite low. Temecula has very good schools. The city boasts a fabulous Old Town shopping and dining area, a state of the art indoor / outdoor shopping mall with great restaurants, The Temecula Wine Country with over 40 great wineries to choose from. The area is also home to the Pechanga Casino. We have great weather and although being relatively close to the ocean, our local mountain range holds back the coastal fog on most days. We are about 1000 feet above sea level so we do tend to be Read More

Great place to raise a family - 4/30/2014
I've lived in Temecula since 1989 and it's the absolute best place to raise a family. Schools are top notch, park system is outstanding, crime is low and we have a well run city council. It is by far the best city to live in Riverside County. Common areas throughout the city are well landscaped, Old Town is a favorite destination to go out for the night or shopping. 10 golf courses within 20 minutes, over 30 wineries to spend a day at and hot air balloons fill the sky every morning. Home prices are 30-40% cheaper than San Diego or Orange County. The worst thing about the area is traffic if you have to commute to San Diego, LA or Orange County. It is a well run city that has a lot to Read More

Great Place to Live - 10/2/2012
We have lived in Michigan, Colorado, Hawaii,
and Florida -- But, our favorite place to winter
is Temecula, CA. The people are authentically
friendly and the area offers a gorgeous atomosphere.
There are always flowers blooming and the citrus
cannot be beat. The vineyards offer excellent
exposure to new wines and the shopping leaves nothing
to be desired.

A little too hot for us in the summer months, but
fall, winter and spring are absolutely wonderful !

Could use a little more cultural enrichment, but we
think this is only a matter of time. The Old Town
is a perfect venue for more art galleries & uniqueRead More

fell in love with Temecula - 7/10/2012
I came for a visit a couple times (2011 & recently July '12) in Temecula with a friend. Went to Old town,liked it.. Came back a few weeks ago for a few days, went to the wineries, the weather is great.. it seems like everytime I come here I have this feeling of wanting to live here. I have lived in the bay area for 16 some years. I have been to several places to check and see if the place is a great place to raise children.. This is the only place I feel like it's pulling me in. I find that people are mostly friendly. Housing to me is much affordable compare to where I live now. It feels like a great place to raise my teenager and gradeschooler. My ONLY concern are JOBS!! I have been in the medical field for a long time and has a very stable job "quote on quote...Went on CL's and checked out jobs in this area and seems like there is none around... My friend told me it's the most safest city to live.. Read More
