Yeah, doing my research, the Inland Empire looks like what California used to be, but I guess the drawback is the weather is more like Texas? COL looks great compared to the OC, which is where I was looking.

Having spent a lot of time in Texas, I will guarantee you that the weather is not like Texas. There is no other state with weather like California.

97 seems surprisingly hot. The data I'm finding online shows summer averages at 91, which seems more realistic to me. Should be no hotter than Riverside IMO, and with lower humidity. I mean, it's a huge wine growing region, so that usually makes for generally pleasant weather with mild but noticeable seasonal differences.

I'd say Temecula has a very agreeable climate overall and is a nice city -- just a bit far from major metro areas.

It depends where in the Temecula Valley you are. Southern Temecula is a little cooler because of the afternoon breeze ( wind ). I hate wind so we chose to live in Murrieta. Temecula and Murrieta are all practical reasons one city. In any event I love the climate here as I like warm weather. The climate is not what you would call very seasonal.

I don't have to commute, so a place like Temecula can work for me. 91 and 97, that's a difference for sure. 91 would be preferred.

Yeah, I've definitely noticed as you drive north out of Temecula, it gets hotter as the mountains block the cooling breezes, and it starts to feel more like desert than wine country.

By "seasonal," I simply meant it's noticeably cooler in winter than summer (60s vs 90s), and nights get chilly in winter. But compared to much of the country, it's heaven.

If you live and work in the Temecula area, then yes it is a very nice place too live and it is growing. But when you have to commute to Los Angeles or San Diego, life is hell.

I agree 100%. I am retired so the traffic is not a problem for us. There is no way I would live here if I had to commute.
