I have been living here for around 4-5 years now and I can definitely say, I love living here. While still brand new, I feel like Wildomar is slowly growing and is building up to be a nice city like Temecula or Murrieta are becoming. I've been loving the amount of stores and locations to go to and they all seem to be pretty close to where I live, via bus or walking distance! It's also really family friendly, allowing for many new families to move in and start a life together! While there is a slight issue with the trash, I do feel this is a nice place to live in!

Wildomar is a great area to live in. It is a nice small city but it is growing rapidly! We have so many good options for food and shopping. We are also strategically located very close to Murrieta, Temecula, and Lake Elsinore. You can hop on the freeway and get to One of these locations in 10-15 minutes!
I like that Wildomar is a small town that is not that far away from major cities and destinations. Disneyland and LA are about and hour and a half away while San Diego and beaches are about an hour away. There are also places around Wildomar that are fun to explore from the Ortega Mountains that have various hiking trails and waterfalls, to the local Dejong’s Dairy that has the best chocolate milk. There are also fun seasonal events like at Halloween when the Baseball field has a Field of Screams, or at Christmas when ice rinks are around the town. Also in the spring we have a beautiful poppy season where the hills are rolling in flowers and it looks beautiful. I like the weather in SoCal it is usually sunny.
