Howdy, I'm currently looking to buy a house in Yucaipa, but all the info I find is just demographics... Do any of you know what sites are out there that might have information on other things rather than the median income?

Default Redlands, Yucaipa's Neighbor

I live in Redlands, which is Yucaipa's neighbor. We have lived here 6 years and I have lived in Inland Empire Area for 27 years.

Yucaipa used to be a more rural community, but in the last 5-10 years housing has boomed out there. Specifically Chapman Heights, which you might want to avoid as a number of homeowners are in the middle of a class action lawsuit over the homes sliding down the hill due to improper grading of the land. I believe KB is building some new townhomes in the area, some might already be open. If you are looking for a place to rent, I would try to find a place around the North part of town, between Crafton hills college and Oak Glen Road.

But, Yucaipa has seen a lot of growth in the last 5-10 years and generally attracts more family types. Homes have larger lots and some neighborhoods can be old trashy farmish.

They recently built a shopping center that has a Cold Stone, lots of banks, a Ross clothing and some other shops.

Neat! thanks for the tips about Yucaipa, it helps to actually get some feed back! It's a bit nerve wracking
For other peeps I did find a couple of sites that had more than epodunk and yahoo real estate. I found a blog aroundyucaipa.blogspot.com that actually has a list of al lthe local music. It sounds like it's a very lively music comunity
I also found Yucaipa Community Information which had a lot of great info, a good restaurant guide and other suff. I think I saw a real estate listing in..."Uptown Yucaipa" is that a good neighborhood?

I really just wanted to get a pulse on the community, to see if it was growing or staying the same. Thanks for the tips!

If your looking around Oak Glen - neighbors are unfriendly, nosey, snobby and downright unfriendly!! Neighbors should be neighbors not watch dogs.

I have lived in Chapman Heights in Yucaipa for just under 4 years. I have absolutely LOVED IT! There are miles of manicured walking trails and bike lanes that lead all the way up to the Regional Park. Yucaipa has nice parks that my family enjoys visiting. I have four young boys and there are many free and very cheap activities to do to keep them busy and happy. My experience here has been great! Overall, the people are very friendly and we have had nice neighbors. I am very outgoing and started the relationships on my own, but everyone was welcoming and we look out for each other. The elementary school that my children attended was very nice. They have a strong PTA and many extra activities to keep the children excited to go to school and participate. Because of circumstances, my family has to move away for awhile, but I am anxiously awaiting the time when we can move back to this wonderful community. I have read some threads that say ugly things about the city, but I suppose you can find the good and enjoy your community or you can fester about the bad that exists in every town. You make the choice.

Check it out good you can't judge the book by the cover. corrupt city government. too much foolish spending on things like city hall and parks that no one uses, look at the streets in older parts of city etc.

Default I live in Yucaipa

I live in Yucaipa and I hate it. It is so hot in the summer you can't breathe and there is nothing to do. We are a 90 minute drive from Los Angeles and the signs are all wrong and confusing. The main street is Yucaipa Bl and all it has is stores. For nightly entertainment, we go to [URL="http://www.sanmanuelcasino.com"]www.sanmanuelcasino.com[/URL] to play the slots and listen to a live band. It is very close to us. To get to Yucaipa, you take Interstate 10 East and get off at Yucaipa Blvd and go up a hill (all the way) (the whole city is a hill) It's hot in the libray and there are no movie theaters or any kinds of entertainment except the biker bar on 18th St. and Dunlap. I hate it here because it is boring and unless you like to stay home and watch TV, I wouldn't recommend moving here. Mary

Like every city, Yucaipa has good and bad points. For the most part Yucaipa is a great community to live in. There are many homes available that have unusually spacious yards that you would never see in other communities. It has a quieter and rural feel with everything close at hand from shopping to entertainment. Yes, sometimes you have to go to other cities for excitement, but most consider that a good thing...... You can be anywhere within minutes but still live in a safe and quiet community. Views are beautiful. Hot summers but tolerable, and worthwhile. Lots of new retail which provides a good job base. Local community college with exceptional programs for firefighters and more.

Its Oct 2010, I just moved here recently. I agree w/most of the posters here, its a beautiful, safe quiet & yes at times very slow (especially Sundays), but if your here for peace & quiet, this is one of the places to be. Driving anywhere its a drag, but you get use to it. Although you can walk to the churches, as they are lots of them in this city, very church going out here. I'm from LA and yes I miss everything out there as far as convenience and what I grew up with, but I won't move back, because of my age (in my 40s), so the years of nightlife & partying are past me now, and slowing down some, goin to church more often (they have a recently newly built Catholic Church on California Street, it reminds me of the newer one on Temple St, in LA, but not so congested, as its very accommodating w/both the seating and parking, but again we can walk to it. To go to Walmart, Target, the malls, movies, Trader Joe's, Dollar Tree/(they have a 99c store thats really popular, since its the only one out here), you do have to drive to Redlands, Beaumont, Perris/Moreno Valley (not too bad, the 60 west entrance is in Beaumont. People, its gotten diverse, (my sisters lived her forever), which I like, religious, Christian seems to dominate, but again, in one way or another we are all into God. The areas, well upper Yucaipa which I guess is where I am, since I'm not too far from Calimes & Oak Glen is considered a nice family oriented area (although pockets of "not so nice areas" & farmish & abondoned homes), Chapman Heights is the Ritzy Area (located near Crafton Hills Community College & near Mentone), more suburban & reminds me of Rancho Cucamonga, but much nicer, although you can sense a little snootyness in the air. (I get that where I live too), I guess lower Yucaipa is by the freeway & is quaint in some areas, and not so nice in most of that area. Yes its defintely a small rural town, a little more city on Yucaipa Blvd, but you can see remnants of old town towards Yucaipa & California St (some businesses look abadoned & kinda junky/dusty-dirtroadish), but still quaint. I love the area, again its for people that want a safe environment for their kids, close to Oak Glen, where its old time jamboree feeling & apple orchards, etc are awesome for our kids of today to grasp, and mainly people who reach an age where they no longer want to be in the busy city/party life anymore. If your still wound up about LA & the party scene, this is not the place for you. As for thriftyness, the Yard Sales are AWESOME!! They are actual yard sales & not like in LA where everyones having them every week & trying to get retail for their used items (the idea is to get rid of, not make back your investment from)..lol, The Thrift Stores are also very cool, theres several of them out here, my favorite one & I can't remember the name, but its on California St, (like their Uptown/Downtown area),a little more vintage, ran by a family, where the daughter is usually there all the time, she's sweet, always greets you w/sincerity, and I amoung others usually buy there because of her, shes a little chatty, but so sweet you can't help but end up buying (its really cheap there too!), because shes has a great sales personality. Also in this city, Yard Sales & usually that thrift store I mentioned leave their items there after closing, usually as a hint for you to come and take it, "please take it off our hands" type of thing, very interesting you won't ever see that in LA unless its the usual thiefing....& yes your by all the Casinos/Palm Springs area too......I like it.
