More retail shopping, including restaurants, clothing stores, and night life. Love the parks, small-town atmosphere and friendly neighborhoods. Cost of living is great and so many new homes!

Though there are some rough places, it is hidden within history and culture of the town. Many places are similar but none are alike here!
I have been a resident of San Jacinto for 3 years and so far, i am happy with my relocation from Riverside, Ca. My neighborhood is quiet, well kept, very very low crime rate, a good place to raise a family. However, there are limited businesses as far as places to eat and shop. Also, i am a mother of two children (4 & 8) and there isn't much for them to do out here. In order to experience more variety, we have to go to Hemet or outside of Gilman Springs. However, i am very satisfied with the school my kids attend. Overall, i would recommend someone to live out here as they are developing new houses near me and schools.
