Irvine is all I do

I was introduced to Temecula in 1983, my wifes Dad had a place in Anza, so we'd drive through Temecula to get to it.  There was one traffic signal and a few stop signs, and we'd breeze through the sleepy town.  But now it takes a while to get through the town, depending on how many Red Lights we hit.  It sure has grown.

Great information, and of course no suprise Temecula ranked high. It's such a beautiful place to live.

Now I was suprised to see #'s 4 & 10 make that list?

Joan:  Thank you for the nice comment!

Charles:  Don't believe everything you hear on the news.  California is not one be Los Angeles, it's has many, many suburban communities, ranch communities, and vineyards in both Southern and Northern California. I did not even get to the beach towns....negativity about California is only a very small part most of California is beautiful and yes, safe tranquil and lovely, lovely weather!

Laura:  Or at least come for a visit! :)

Jennifer:  Thank you for stopping by my blog.  I enjoy your blog about your beautiful area as well.

Pam:  Here's wishing both of us great success in our lovely area of Temecula.  I know you stive to provide excellent service to your clients as well!

Marco:  Temecula and Murrieta does have rural areas as well as well as newer subdivisions and a lot of ranch homes, with avocado groves, vineyards and of course wineries.  Thank you for your comment!

Andrew:  Thank you, the article was originally written by Business Insider, that's where I saw it.

Andrew:  In a state like Maine, they have to take into consideration, "Counties", or like you did the entire State.  I agree with you that safety is a valid concern for residents.

Debbie:  Thank you and I'm glad you have been here, you can tell Charles above that it is a safe place first hand as I don't think he believes me! ;)

Raymond:  It's nice to have you comment about they way Temecula has changed.  I have been here since 1989 and know what you mean.  I agree the traffic has increased greatly.  I can remember when there was only one stoplight as well.  And only one fast food restaurant.....the Del Taco on Jefferson....that was it!

Brian:  Murrieta is right next to Temecula, so not really a surprise, and Orange California is rural as well.  Thanks for stopping by and glad you have had a chance to visit Temecula!
