Temecula was much less diverse back in 2009 when I first came. The population was more Causcian. There was a few times where I encountered racism being hispanic. Nonetheless, most Caucasians have been kind so I can't speak for all, but racism still exists. The town has been very republican, but these past few years thousands have inhabited the city from different parts of the world since it attracts families because of the top rated schools, safety and family friendly environments. Thus, making the town more diverse then ever. With the growing population, crime has increased as well. Diversity is good, but it totally brings a different vibe to the town. Everyone keeps to themselves like a city mentality vs town mentality. Not so homey feeling afterall. Many people come from cities and states all throughout the US. It is still safe. Schools are great! Juse can't call it home. Too crowded and not so friendly people.

I have lived in Temecula for 10 years and I am still finding new places to go. It is a safe city to take a night cruise in and this as an awesome place for the foodies and wine lovers! There is a lot of nice views, and I'm not just referring to the wonderful diversity Temecula has. Wine country is the most relaxing, enticing and beautiful place in the city. Temecula is also very family friendly as well. From duck ponds to children's museums and kids eat free days, it is a place the whole family can enjoy! The freeway is close, which makes commute times reasionable from San Diego to Riverside. Top flight education. Thmecula offers 3-4 private schools and a multitude of public schools from grade school to high school. Although the cost of living is high, Temcula truly cares about its community! Jobs are easy to come by as well. I enjoy living in a place where I can take me kids out to explore and be creative and be able to enjoy shows at the local Casino.
Temecula Ca, has everything anybody has to love about California! Nice weather, always! There are things to do for all ages. To trampoline parks for the children to casinos for the adults. A downtown area that is so adoreable for all ages and that is always hosting events. The lake is just around the corner for summer to being out your boat and tubes. The winery's are all minutes away from each other and have really nice venues. The schools top of the top with testing and sports.
