That's actually a really nice area if you don't mind drug dealing out in the open, thugs on the corners, and homeless wandering about.

There is an apartment complex on the corner of Fruitvale and State Street (about a block away) which isn't bad. You can verify this by calling the police department and asking about the crime stats there.

Another area west of State and Menlo is not too bad either. Check all the streets named after the presidents.

Reagan 08 is right about the State and Menlo area though. It's pretty bad.

And just watch out for a perverted child molester described to be wearing a shirt with the name "Reagan 08" across it and who has been reported to be exposing himself to children, old ladies and stray dogs in that area.

But the other parts of town should be ok if you happen to be a white supremacist (oxymoron).

i use to live in hemet. not a bad area. a lot of older people live there but the last 2 years more younger ones are coming and a a mixture of nationalities. its about 30% white 40% mexican 30%white. there are good and bad parts of hemet to live. the main hospital in my opion is somewhere i wouldnt ever go to i went out of town for care,medical care is not good in hemet and the dental care is really bad. it is true a lot of child molesters live in hemet. drugs are in all ciyies. stay way from the mobilhome parks it seems they have a lot of crime in those areas.a lot of shopping and it is being built up in the hemet area. weather is hot! summer is arount 110-118. good luck

Hemet is a dump. You can put lip stick on a pig and it is still a pig.

It is a dump !! I wish I could get out of here.
the older retirees are getting sick and passing away or moving in with adult children for care.
The new people who are moving here are from another planet!!! They don't take care of there yards, they are rude, etc.
The City of Hemet was not prepared for this type of growth. Its crowded, druggies, homeless folks
walking around, business' are closing there doors.
RATS IN A CAGE...... thats what we call whats going on ! I wish I could sell and get the heck
out of here!

If you divide Hemet into four sections--North, South, East, West--what are the good sections to live, and what sections are not so good.

Your not against the homeless because they don't have a home right?? Most of them are just sad. Yeah hemet is pretty bad no matter where you go but if your looking into an apartment make sure it has thick walls. It is scarey how common it is to see drug dealers on the corners. Like there younger men in their early 20s or even young sometimes.. Of all races..Oh and the other day on San Jacinto street by the middle school a hooking was trying to get a customer. Very creepy!

The east part of Hemet (Valle Vista) area of Hemet is a nice area. I would also suggest the south-east part of Hemet, too.

The entire valley floor is vulnerable to crime. Valley Lifers are selling and leaving town or moving up into the hillside enclaves, south of Hemet. Most of these residences are gated and have cameras and security systems, now. Homes on the valley floor are relying on gates, fences, bars on windows, pit bulls and are packing heat for protection.

My family is on the way out, we are moving to Murrieta. It is not a good enviornment to raise a family anymore. The schools are getting worse (bullying, little banger wanna be's, fights), the amount of crime is getting worse (one of the highest sex offenders per square mile ratio of any IE city), and just take a trip down Florida at night (dealers, shopping carts, homeless, prostitutes). Holy crap, a trip to Walmart after 10pm is down right an adventure. There is not a lot to do for kids, so they cruise around housing areas and hang out in front of Walmart acting like fools. Even the LA Times did an article on Willow Walk the new gated community off S. Sanderson, calling it the "gated ghetto". This is not the Hemet it used to be and will be never be the same. I am sure it will get better, but it will never recover.

On a positive note, Diamond Valley Lake is really nice and the new softball fields are great. It looks like they are finishing the new Buffalo Wild Wings too. Oh, and my neighbor (we do live a nice neighborhood on the westside) is going to get his stolen stereo and amplifier back from a pawn shop (after he pays for it).

LOL @ Willow Walk!! I looked into those homes when I was looking for a second house. I went there during the day and the homes looked really cute, but too close together. I went back in the evening and WHOA! No thanks!

Hemet is the worst place to live. It is getting worse than LA Per Capita. It is full of gangs, drugies, I mean come on they were setting war against the police station there, it was all over the news. DO NOT MOVE THERE.

I have lived in Hemet for 7 yrs and Its like a never ending nightmare. Why was there 4 black dudes trying to break into my home and when we pulled up they just walked away like they had just had dinner with me. I called the police over and these guys had the audacity to walk pass my house and then started running like crackhead, the police caught them and they were wanted felons, one was considered armed and dangerous. This was in the gated ghetto of willowalk, cant wait to sale my home and get the hell out of this mount. If you have kids stay far far away, the schools here are horrible and the teachers think they are actually teaching something. My son was teaching them. Just plain ole sorry town. Run as fast as you can
stay away from hemet
