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 surprised my wife and I when we moved here a year ago. Geographically, it's about an hour SE of Anaheim and an hour N of San Diego nestled in a lush wine country valley with rolling green hills, lakes and mountains. We found it by the real estate market being dramatically more affordable as it's part of Riverside County, and we can still travel to Carlsbad's nice beaches or the lakes nearby for recreation. The majority of family neighborhoods were constructed from late 80's to early 2000's so everywhere you look there's decent housing.

We don't have kids yet but have found it to be the most kid-friendly city with INCREDIBLE programs for younger aged kids at the Recreation Center in the library and local parks. There's a LOT to do in the city from visiting Old Town--a few city blocks of preserved early 1800's buildings, to music and dance venues; horseback riding in wine country to a great diversity of food and restaurants including more health-conscious options.
