Murrieta, CA - A Great Bedroom Community for Families!

I have lived and raised my family in Murrieta California for the last 20 years. The city has grown from less than 10,000 people to over 100,000 over the course of my time here and it has become a wonderful place to live and raise a family. Because of the proximity to both Los Angeles and San Diego, many business-men raise their families here and commute into the city. Because of this, there are tons of young families who live in Murrieta, which makes it ideal to raise your kids. There are three full high schools with thousands of kids in each. It makes for a healthy rivalry that makes friday night football special. If there was a negative to Murrieta it is how sheltered it is. Sometimes my kids have complained about their "not being anything to do here". However, they have enjoyed being able to drive into LA for concerts and the beach and Disneyland are less than an hour away. There really isn't anything noteworthy to visit in Murrieta itself, but if you are looking for a great place to live in Southern California, Murrieta would definitely fit the bill. Great shopping opportunities and families will love its peaceful atmosphere. The crime rate is low and the houses are all new and beautiful. It is the typical California suburbia that everyone sees when they watch California on television.

aerial spraying My family and I are considering to move to Murrieta from Santa Monica. I love the weather here but it is getting too expensive for us. However, I need to move to a place that is not sprayed with pesticides for various pests. My son wants us to go to Ventura, but I read that because of the strawberries the spraying is very on-going there. Does this happen in Murrieta …
