Perris California is a Beautiful Place to Live

I have lived in Perris California for many years and can proudly say that overall it is a great city to grow up in. It was the perfect size population wise for my family and I with just over 72,000 people. It wasn't too large of a city, yet it wasn't too small either. Perris always seemed to have exactly what I was looking for.

Growing up as a child, one of my favorite things about Perris is that it is very close to Disneyland. It was only about 40 miles away and we could get there in a short amount of time. Living far enough away from the theme park didn't make Perris a tourist town which was very nice. Heading to Disneyland for the day is one of my favorite memories as a child. In my opinion, there really isn't any negatives about Perris California. If you are from a northern state, it may get a little hot for you as the average summer temperatures tend to be between 90-100 degrees, but it can get warmer than that as well. I know for someone who is not used to that temperature, it can be a little uncomfortable. The great thing about the weather is that it rarely gets below 30 degrees even on the coldest days. Sure, a winter jacket may be a good idea, you don't have to worry about being cold for too long. The cost of living in Perris California is not too bad. It is still very affordable for those who are working full time jobs.

If you are thinking about relocating to Perris California, it is definitely a great destination to choose. You will be overcome with the beauty of not just the city, but the entire state as a whole.
