Temecula is more like S.D.
Murrieta is more like the Inland Empire....(for now!) I know it's right there but SOME people drive the raised trucks and have the tough guy tattoo's like you see in East County (S.D). My Fiancee bought a place in Murrieta.....and I work/live in S.D. so this is just my opinion. If I had to choose I would take Temecula any day! (For quality and class take Temecula.)

Moving into the area from Portland, Or. Have researched as much as I can, but as always, you can read, but there is nothing like info from "locals". What are the pros/cons for moving to Murrieta or Temecula?. Schools, safety, jobs, lifestyle-parks, weather, etc. I am looking forward to the sunshine, but what about the weather during fall and winter? Will not have a job when I first arrive, so how is the economy for banking, waitress, starbucks, that type of thing? Online, the economy is looking good but that does not match up with the foreclosures. Is there an asian community? any china town stores/restaurants? Starbucks on every corner? To grocery shop, are there a lot of options close?
Not familiar with Mello Roos and other taxes/assessments you have. Are they expensive, and everywhere? Can a person with an income of $30k a year have any kind of life or are you outpriced?
I sure appreciate any help.

Temecula has better schools and is a little more developed, but both cities are very similar to each other.

I thought that was hilarious how you characterize the people in Murrieta and the I.E., but there is some truth to that.

Temecula and Murrieta are exactly the same. Murrieta is not more like the Inland Empire, they both have the same character. Both have the same masterplan communities. Both have views of the mountains. Temecula has Pechanga and the vineyards, but Murietta is only one town over. Really they are just one lump of suburbia. They both have identical demographics. They are kind of the unofficial twin cities of the region.

They are not exactly the same. Temecula wins hands down. Better schools, better representation, nicer grocery stores. I live in Texas now but when I return it will be to Temecula.
