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.
I lived near Temecula, CA for over 12 years and enjoyed this location in Southern California. Temecula is a charming community that offers the residents breathtaking views of the wineries throughout the countryside. Temecula is a town rich history most known for the various wineries earn the town the nickname Wine Country. If you are looking to move here, Temecula is a great place to raise a family as the area offers a relaxing and safe environment that is ideal for all ethnic groups. I especially like that Temecula is centrally located as it is near San Diego, Los Angeles, and Orange County a short drive to explore these cities. The Balloon and wine festival is one of my favorite events here as you can travel in the balloons taking in the majestic views of thousands of beautiful acres of vineyards. Down in Historic Old Town Temecula is where thousands come to see antique stores, car shows, festivals, and a sample the culinary cuisine served at our world-class restaurants.
