About the Temecula Community

Temecula was originally founded by ranchers and Native American farmers in the 1700s and is located right in between Murrieta and the Pechanga Indian Reservation in Southwest Riverside County. Many families have been drawn to Temecula due to its affordable housing, variety of large shopping centers and high quality style of life. Due to easy access of the I-15, many residents of Temecula commute to the neighboring counties of San Diego and Orange for work.

In addition, Temecula is known as the very heart of Southern California wine country. The mild climate and rolling hills create an impeccable setting for beautiful fields of grapes that are perfect for creating award winning wines and sparkling champagnes that are renowned around the globe. Other than residential neighborhoods consisting of close knit tract homes and condominiums, Temecula is also home to a large number of truly stunning equestrian estates on the southeastern side of its borders. Temecula is without a doubt one of the most established communities in Southern California, yet it still maintains a contemporary and forward-thinking atmosphere with the help of careful planning and professional City leadership. Below you'll find a great list of Temecula schools, Temecula dining spots, shopping and recreation and a ton of other great Temecula community information!
