Review of Beaumont, California

Beaumont, CA..... Rancho Cucamonga in the making?
Star Rating - 12/25/2019
My oh my has Beaumont, CA come a long way! My husband and I have resided within the vicinity from Redlands throughout Calimesa all the way to Palm Desert off and on for roughly a decade now and there's nothing like the charm wafted by way of the bustling town of Beaumont!

More upscale than nearby Banning, a bit more urban than that of Cherry Valley, we can definitely envision this place becoming the next Eastvale or Rancho Cucamonga if the city plans in accordance and does things correctly.

From Sundance throughout Plantation newly built homes can be viewed from the 60, 79 and 10 freeways however the traffic due to what appears to be an undeniable lack of preparation is what separates the apple orchards from the orange blossoms!

Simply put. Traffic in Beaumont is an absolute nightmare!

If not on the freeway (the 60 & 10 are both undergoing construction), taking the side streets are enough to compel you to reconsider staying at home and for what?

A handful of chain restaurants, a Wal Mart and a few other low end restaurants? Perhaps this would've received a pass a decade ago but we're going into 2020 & there's really nothing to vouch for the high cost of new homes.

There's potholes in the roads and ....pot heads aligning the freeway off ramps. What used to be a beautiful place still has all kinds of potential but I'm guessing crap rolls from the top down in situations like this and in this case, it starts with the corrupt city officials and wanders directly into the low lives residing below the snow capped mountains.

In short, we still love it here but I can't bring myself to give the town 5 stars.

I'm giving it 4 because it's a beautiful place that doesn't sound as delightful as Cherry Valley but at least it's not Banning! And that alone allows us to sleep well each night.
