Red face Moving to San Jacinto?

Hi everyone! My parents just recently sold our house in San Diego and are moving to a house in San Jacinto. I just wanted to know how it's like to live there? Is it as bad as people make it seem? I know there isn't much to do in that area, but that's ok because I'm always stuck studying. I just want to know how the people are, crime, etc. Thanks everyone!

You'll spend most of your time in Temecula. Not much retail/entertainment in San Jacinto. Crime is moderate. There are some active gangs but I don't worry too much when I drive through.

You can also go to Idyllwild or take the 79 North into Oak Glen. I like taking my son to Riley's Farm. As far as night life goes, it's pretty boring. Unless you go to the movies or to dinner. The mall is pretty small but there are other shopping areas in the city. Not a big city compared to San Diego but it's a nice place to live if you like the quiet sleepy town.

I don't think it's as bad as some people make it out to be, just depends on what area you live in. There are some nice newer communities out there, a relative of mine lives in San Jacinto and it's a very nice neighborhood and rather quiet.

Your very close to Hemet, and not to far from cities like Temecula, Murrieta, & Menifee. So I could think of worse places to live.

I actually think it's pretty there. I like those rural kinds of places with hills and greenery. I also like the barren, dry desert too.

I currently live in San Jacinto, It's a quiet rural/agricultural area. There were major business and residential development plans for San Jacinto, in fact it was touted the next Diamond Community of Riverside County, first was Temecula, then came Corona, next is supposed to be San Jacinto. The econony has stiffled some of the development plans for now, but since I moved here 6 months ago, I've seen business construction springing up all over, slowly but surely. From what I have read, San Jacinto states that they are still doing ok economically, but the Mid County Parkway plans to connect San Jacinto to Temecula and Corona and the 15 fwy have been cut in half. It was supposed to be a 32mile major transportation corridor, that has since been scaled back to only 16 miles. Construction is supposed to begin in 2011, although I think they have already started construction. 9,000 new homes have been built here since 2004, and 11,000 more are supposed to be built here by 2011. There are some new developments of beautiful homes that look like ghost towns due to the sub prime disaster, so now is a great time to find a large 5,6, or even 7 bedroom house in the 175,000 area. There are empty houses all over the place. In the Winter time San Jacinto is breathtakingly beautiful, to me. The home prices are dirt cheap. Entertainment is here, not much yet, but you can do anything here that you can elsewhere. There a couple nightclubs, movies, restaurants etc. I'm please with it.
