Hi

I have a new job in Corona and am considering places to live. Can anyone tell me how long it would take to commute there from say Murrieta or Temecula ? Work starts at 8am.

Thanks

Why not live in Corona? The commute is BAD from Temecula and Murrieta! The 15 becomes a parking lot. Then if you have to get onto the 91, it's over. The way back is also bad.

Corona is just as good a city as Temecula/Murrieta. It would actually be cheaper living in Corona.

I was thinking about schools and housing costs . I thought the schools are better and housing cheaper in Murrieta/Temecula. Is this the case ?

Yes, that is the case. I would also consider Lake Elsinore. It's a little closer to Corona and is cheaper.

Yes, I echo the posts above me. Temecula and Murrieta as well as Elsinore are almost identical to Corona with regards to living quality and city sociodynamics. Don't torture yourself living that far from it. Traffic at that time in the morning isn't too bad, but it's a nightmare coming back in the afternoon/evening.

Thanks for the replies so far, appreciate the input.
I've read on this forum that Lake Elsinore has crime/gang problems, is it not really that bad ? Just how long would the commute to and from Corona be from Murrieta ? 1 Hour ?

Lake Elsinore is decent. It's really hit or miss but it's definitely a downgrade from Corona, Murrieta or Temecula. The drive from Murrieta to Corona is probably about 40-50 minutes without traffic.

If schools are a high priority for you, Lake Elsinore does not have as much to offer as Temecula/Murrieta or even Corona. I love Temecula, but if I could afford to live in the same city as my husband's job and get good schools, I would. See what you can find in Corona near one of the higher rated schools.

Me: Product of the Corona-Norco Unified School District, until grade 8.

I think I turned out well.

If you look hard enough, actually, if you look at all, you'll find what you are looking for in Corona. Corona isn't the kind of place to commute to, more of a place to commute from, if you catch my drift.

Just think about the quality-of-life you'll have without an unnecessary commute. Oh, the possibilities!!!

Regarding Lake Elsinore, the crime/gang problems are really isolated to the lower income areas. They don't exist in the newer developments such as Alberhill or Rosetta Canyon; nor do they exist east of I-15 (Tuscany Hills, Canyon Lake, etc). In the interest of full disclosure, I live in Rosetta Canyon.
