Hello, I am posting this as for questions about they three area's in the main topic: Romoland, Wildomar, and Perris.

I plan on relocating my family from PA to Southern CA, and though I have look more at places such as: Murrieta, Temecula, Murrieta Hot Springs, Sun City, Quail Valley to name a few. I want to keep my mind open to other possible area's.

I am doing my research and have posted numerous questions concerning costs of living in these such areas. I currently have another thread for utility costs (which, thank you to everyone for posting). I have also performered research through the web as well.

Thank You in adcance for you comments, questions, and critiques.

I`d stay away from Perris and Quail Valley. Murrieta and Temecula are one of the nicer areas to live . If I were you I would first go visit these places that you are interested in. Then you`ll really know which cities you like and how far the drive will be from were you work. I have found that to be the best way to find out what a city is really like. The internet doesn`t really give you an acurate picture of what other places are really like. Being there is the only way you`ll know.

Thank You for your advice. I would like to take a trip out, it's been over 20 years since I've been there and I know a lot has changed.

I live in Wildomar and love it. Moved here from Canyon Lake. I like the fact that it is pretty rural for the area. Where I'm at all the houses are on lots that are at least 3/4 acre. I'm also on a dirt road. Great views of the hills too.

Quail Valley is often the subject of jokes out this way, I've heard it called Crank Valley more than once hehe. But there are some nice places there too, just not that many.

A buddy of mine lives in a four-year old house in Quail Valley, which he informed me has just been annexed as part of the city of Menifee, which just recently became incorporated. His little neighborhood is really nice and right next to a semi-wilderness area.

The bummer of these areas is the long distance travel for shopping.

I agree Murrieta and Temecula are nice. Important, too, are the schools. I believe Murrieta and Temecula beat the pants off any nearby areas' schools. You can find and compare schools at www.greatschools.net. Also depends on where you commute to for your work. Murrieta and Temecula are closer to the Marine Corps base at Camp Pendleton.

Some new housing tracks were built recently in Quail Valley, and they look pretty nice. Temecula has the best school district of them all and it's a nice, but very crowded, area. If I had to choose, I would live in Murrieta or Wildomar for they're still semi small towns. They're clean, with little major crime. Wildomar is building like crazy, and I bet, nice, affordable housing can be found there. Consider Canyon Lake, too, as prices have dropped in there dramatically.

Hello: I have lived in Wildomar for about 25 years. There are many options available in the Riverside County area. We have everything from the Ultra Rich, to the homeless, as well as about everything in between. Temecula has only three freeway exits, so getting off the freeway during rush hours can be a real bear, unless you get off the freeway a couple of exits before your main exit, and use the alternate roads to reach your destination.
Murrieta has lots of residential neighborhoods, and condos, as well as apartments. The whole of southwest Riverside County used to be mostly rural with lots of horses, and open land. That for the most part is a thing of the past now.
You might wan to take a trip here before you decide which area you think will be what you are looking for as a permanent place to live.
While we have great weather in comparison to the east coast, we also have lots more traffic, and higher cost of living than many other places.
However, Los Angeles and Orange Counties are even more expensive to live in.
I have lived in California since 1955, and though I have stayed, it is way too crowded for me. I prefer more rural places, with mountains for hiking, horseback riding, and camping. We do have places like that, but we also have lots more people than I like. way too many cars, smog, and crowded freeways.

Perris is doing some major changes now. In June 2010 Perris is FINALLY starting to widen the 215 interchange at Redlands. The owner of Target was just waiting for the red tape to clear. He wants to built Target, but with the way the 215 interchange was built in the 1960s was fine - for that time. It needed to be updated by the late 90s and finally measure A is kicking in. People will not want to come to Perris due to that one stupid intercetion.

All cities have bad parts of town. Come down here and take a look. We also reduced our crime rate. The City of Perris is also on FaceBook. They have a stratgeic plan up on their website at cityofperris.org

Perris is family friendly- most people here have 3 or 4 kids. Median income is now somewhere near 45K. If you like sports - baseball, you'd love it here. We are known for skydiving as well.
Perris is not that bad. I have been here since 1985 and I have seen it grow.

I'm not sure how the metrolink project is coming along. What you need to do is come down the 215 and get off the stupid freeway. You will not be able to see all of the city or town on the freeway. You will see lots of dry land since Perris has much open land here. It will probably be used for more large distribution centers. Perris is also about (according to this site) 56% hispanic. I don't think so. I think it's more like 75% hispanic.

If you don't mind having a family friendly town, having a lot of diversity near you and if you don't mind having the freeway right next to you, then you will do fine here.

Perris Citizes for Change is also on FaceBook. They are taking questions from people that live in the city of Perris. Come take a look. Temecula and Murrieta was not all that nice 20 years ago either. We all have to start somewhere. And Perris has been a city since 1911.
