Temecula is beautiful and a wonderful place to live. It attracts many young familes and retired couples. I was born and raised in Temecula. I have seen it change and expand over time. The traffic is becoming a problem because of the increasing expansion of Temecula. There are many schools scattered throughout Temecula. This also contributes to the chronic traffic issue. Located within driving distance from the coast, mountains, and desert, Temecula offers a perfectly placed valley. There are also many young families in Temecula, it is very kid friendly. Famous for its wine country, Temecula welcomes tourists from around the world. Old town Temecula in particular is a popular place to go out to dinner, bars, and dance clubs. There are also many restaurants for a nice night out. All in all, I enjoy living in Temecula. I would not be who I am today without having been raised in Temecula.

Since childhood, I have lived in this lovely city that exudes care and productivity. In terms of my living environment, neighbors are absolutely lovely, and genuine and the location is close to everything. No need to spend loads of money on gas when everything is so very close and convenient. The overall atmosphere of Temecula is welcoming and is filled with genuine citizens to take time to talk to you personally. Going to places such as Fallbrook proves how tightknit and a community that Temecula is. The city council hears there citizens and improves the city on a continual basis. The homeless population has gone down drastically, and the employment rate has improved. If one is searching for an accepting, fruitful city, Temecula is a perfect option.
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.
