If you are focused solely on the well-being of yourself, ignorant towards different cultures, extremely religious, selfish, would like to drive the "SoCal" version of the 'Autobahnen',have never seen a cyclist before, can't stand the site of diversity, would like to litter and feel no guilt, and believes strongly in a police state.

Then Welcome to Temecula, California.

If not, and still plan on moving here, you would go in the bottom 8% of people of Temecula and Murrieta.
They are basically the same city.I bike around both almost everyday. Don't try and make it sound like there is some huge difference. That, is the competitive side locals tend to have around here.

I moved here to Temecula had a population of 400 (about 40 years) and I am grateful I've had the experience of seeing so many changes over the years. Every city has it's good and bad and Temecula is no exception, however, I would say it's still a good place to live and raise your children. It's not like LA or Orange County but still has alot of things to do even on the weekends. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else!

I have lived in the Temecula Valley since 1989 and my husband and I love this place, we raised our daughters here and now one of our daughters is married with a son and she loves living here also. I grewup in Orange County, lived at the beach, but I have far more enjoyed living in Temecula then when we lived in Huntington Beach. The community here is wonderful, the people are much like everywhere else in California, some more friendly then others. And yes we do have season changes here, in the fall we see the leaves change, the end of October we feel the cool weather and cold evenings, our winters are down right cold, our days are anywhere between 45 to 55 degrees and our evening are usually between 29 ato 34 degrees, and yes we even have dusting of snow. I have lived here for 22 years and I have seen alot of changes, some bad, but mostly good and I would not want to live anywhere else. Also our schools are fantastic my children have graduated and finished their schooling and are professional business women who are in their 20's and make over 50K a year, not bad for young women in their early 20's....I can chalk some of that up to their Temecula upbringing. Good Luck and God Bless

<quoted text>Thanks for the positive reply. We are truly set on moving out there, but have received 50/50 views on it. We too are looking at Redhawk area-ish. Do you commute to LA? What is the "actual" time on the road you spend?? Would be interested...Otherwise you hit the nail on the head with everything else...thanks again.
Look in Meadowview for a home when ur in Temecula It's one of the better neighborhoods and easily accessed from the freeway

I've never been to Temecula, but the negative comments, pretty much sums up Huntington Beach and other parts of the OC. So don't bother moving to coastal cities and expecting anything different.

Let's face it Midwest people, we will never be able to lower ourselves down to California standards. It is a daily struggle to live with these blundering idiots, good luck.

I've been living in California for 4 years. We relocated from Hawaii to Temecula due to my husband's job. From someone who came from Hawaii, I actually love living in Temecula. It's not Hawaii but there are more positive than negative.
I am quite surprised of all the negative comments. I'm Asian and I have never experienced any racism, the cost of living here is less than Hawaii, and the people are very nice here.
The houses are beautiful...the cost of homes are far less than Hawaii and the houses are twice the size. The schools are very conservative and safe. The standards are quite high and the schools are highly rated. Students are highly competitive as far as scholastic achievement which I like.
There's a lot of parks, shopping centers and lots of restaurants. The traffic is a bit heavy during work hours but other than that, traffic within the city isn't bad.
I feel safe living here. Coming from a state where violent crimes is one of the lowest in the country, it was important that we live in a city that we felt safe.
I have to admit, there are a few negatives. There's a lot of 'transients" living here.. primarily because of the many military families that move to Temecula because housing is less expensive than it is in San Diego. They are less invested in the community.
The other negative aspect of living here is the very hot summers which I hate. Temecula also lacks culture but I'm making comparison to Hawaii where everything is about culture. Temecula do lack diversity in its population. The population is majority white...approximately 70%.
So far, I've enjoyed living here but I wish downtown San Diego was a little closer. I don't like having to drive such a long distance to experience the city life.
Is your opinion still positive about Temecula? I recently moved to the East coast on the mainland from Hawaii and I'm not liking it all that much but I'm not sure if moving back to Hawaii is the best option (for the same reasons you listed: cost of living and housing) for my family. Would you be open to giving me more information on the area to help me make a more informed decision?

For those of you that think 500,000 for a home is upscale, You are wrong. That is a lower to lower middle class home in So California. That is a problem of poor research before moving here.

Transplant sounds like a liberal douche bag. Everyone thinks their shit doesn't stink or the grass is always greener on the other side. Mexifornia is a shithole and swirling the bowl. LA county is turning into Tijuana and spreading to Orange County. The OC is either going to turn into TJ or Saigon. Fallbrook is a breeding ground for illegal aliens and gang bangers.

Susan. I made the same move in 2010 and it is great here. The weather is awesome and location is convenient. Closer to San Diego for beaches and sports etc... 45 miles from an empty Ontario airport. Houses are shooting up in cost and the 250K 3000sq foot houses are gone but there are still deals. I loved the summers in Portland but the rest of the year was dark and miserable. Good luck

I would not suggest moving to Temecula, Murrieta, or any of the surrounding areas if you can help it. If you want to relocate to southern Cal stick to the coasts (if you can somehow afford it)- or perhaps drop the idea altogether. I am a Chicago suburb transplant myself, and I have been utterly amazed (in a negative way) by what I've experienced since making the move out to the Murrieta/Temecula area myself two years ago.
To put it bluntly, it seems like the majority of the population in and around this area are just plain selfish, rude, obnoxious, wasteful, and disrespectful to an extreme.
The most obvious reflection of this is how (and what) people drive around here. I used to drive to downtown Chicago nearly every day and never saw so much wreckless, rude, disrespectful, and foolish driving as I have here in the last 2 years. It appears that the speed limit around here is a complete joke - people routinely drive dangerously over the 70 mph speed limit, usually 20-30 miles or more over, unless the traffic is so backed up as to force them to slow down. This extends to regular city streets as well.
lol, you clearly are not from Southern California.
Coming from somebody who was born and raised in Los Angeles I most definitely have to agree about the driving. It is sincerely anxiety causing even for somebody who has driven in the congested streets of LA for her entire life.
But it tends to be the way of life for all southern and central California regions. The farther up north you get you start to see more spacious road and less congestion but also deal with lower income areas..
California seems to be a dream to most whose bubbles are popped when they realize the cost of living here goes past their wallet. It takes a toll on your mental health dealing with all types of people that come with so cal. But you get used to it, eventually. Where I currently live (glendale), we have the most arrogant people..houses are horridly priced, neighborhood is going to sh*t due to increased drug abuse and the city trying to remake it into another dtla. A place like temecula for somebody like me is sincerely refreshing.
BUT I could possibly only be seeing the positives due to the fact that I'm already used to snotty people, shitty air quality, graffiti & gang members, a median house value of 700,000 and rising, and home of THE worst drivers.
My suggestion to people thinking of relocating to southern California or California in general... dont.
It's often looked at as an amazing state to live in, but the cost of living is stupid, the people all have their heads up their assess and act like their time is more important than yours, traffic is so bad that sometimes it easily takes an hour & a half to get somewhere that should only take you 20 minutes, and California as a whole is being taken over by methamphetamines.

I lived in Temecula for over 20 years and seen its transition from small town to a busy, overpopulated, and congested city. I've witnessed attitudes of the contracted Riverside Sheriffs department first hand and can say with 100% certainty that you will never witness a lack of humanity greater than here. It's lack of culture, attitudes, and education which all contribute to that. Materialistic, closed minded, cliquish, snooty are the words that come to mind. Yes you will get good public schools but the trade off is the aforementioned plus congested roads, hot weather, nothing to do but shop. I would like to stress nothing to do. Terrible people and terrible place.
