Where is the best place to leave if working in Moreno Valley? My husband is accepting a job working in Moreno Valley. We have a new baby and we're looking for somewhere safe with family-friendly things to do, but also with a reasonable commute. Any suggestions? Riverside? Temeula? Not a fan of new-construction, cookie-cutter subdivisions. Would love a well-established neighborhood with walking distance to things to do. Thanks in advance!

What's your budget?

Riverside has several older established neighborhoods on the east side that are relatively safe and walkable. However, they can be expensive. Look at Canyon Crest, Orangecrest, Woodcrest, and the neighborhood just north of UCR.

I wouldn't be so quick to rule out new construction subdivisions, though. They may lack charm, but they have a lot of upside for a young family.

The houses are new, so major maintenance problems with plumbing and electricity aren't likely. You get a lot of house for the money.

Neighbors with young children tend to bond- you're liable to be among many new mothers. The initial cost is relatively cheap, and if you choose well, you may be a short stroll from a park and shopping center.

I'd look for a house in a newer development in Perris or Menifee. Murrieta and Temecula are nicer, but more expensive (and a little farther down the 15 from MoVal).

Warning! SAFETY is an issue in some parts of Perris. If you look there, do a little snooping.

Why commute?
Find a good neighborhood in Moreno Valley.

I strongly suggest Canyon Crest! I worked for a law firm located in Moreno Valley and lived in Canyon Crest. My commute was 10 minutes and I loved the Canyon Crest community and beauty. I would suggest that you and your husband look into Canyon Crest, Box Spring Mountain area, or Alessandro area.

Moreno Valley has gotten really bad over the past 10 years. I was raised there and I would strongly suggest not living there--even in the nicer areas. The three places I would highly suggest is in Riverside, the orange crest area (zipcode 92508). Several individuals listed Canyon Crest (92507 I believe). These are wealthier area with less crime, a quick 10 minute communte to Moreno Valley, and the cost of living isn't much different than Moreno Valley.

Another area I really like, which is just a little bit further, is Redlands (92373). Redlands is another wealthy area with really great schools. The commute is going against traffic and it would take about 20 minutes.

I don't think you can go wrong with any three of these choices. Best of luck to you!

Don't think there are any.

I would suggest Winchester. It is a low crime area , with nice schools ( HUSD) and in-between Hemet, Menifee, Perris, and Temecula/Murrieta. Lower cot housing, rural life and traffic and close to the real world...

Good choice...I wouldn't live in Mo Valley without armed guards. Do some research.

Redlands, Yucaipa, or beaumont. I live in beaumont now and there are a lot of cookie cutter homes but the schools are good, it's safe, good home prices, and it's not far from Moreno Valley. We go shopping there and out to eat all the time. There are older homes in beaumont that may fit the bill for you but I would give beaumont some consideration. Lots of young families. Good luck.
