Murrieta is an outstanding city to live! The city has achieved national recondition known for it's trifecta (great crime rate, schools and weather)! Temecula is the mother city to Murrieta which is adjacent on Murrieta's south and east sides. The two cities tend to blend together quite well. Both cities are located very close to the half way mark between both major metropolitan cities such as Los Angeles and San Diego as well as the ocean and mountains making it's location very attractive. Murrieta is known for being a great city to raise a family. This could be that right city for you! Contact myself anytime if you have any questions and/or would like any further insight.
