If you think Temecula has alot of traffic, than Southern California really might not be for you. Lake Elsinore is up the road and has basically doubled since the 2000 census. Murrieta has also doubled since the last census. I understand you have a different perception coming from Michigan, but Temecula is one of the most remote areas in Riverside County, unless you want to live in the desert. If you think there's alot of traffic along the 15 and 215, you should probably stay in Michigan. The area will continue to grow.

Temecula is a place to educate your kids and that is it.

Been in the area for 20 years but truthfully for such a busy place, there is not much to do here. Eating out and shopping are most popular, neither of which I find enjoyable. Everything is a drive, 1 hour or more. Summers, long and very hot (part of May-part of October). Often too hot to do anything outside locally, so you need a pool and/or patience to drive to the beach often, again over 1 hour away.
Move to the beach, I am miserable that we moved away and you won't regret it!
