South Temecula Market Report
Temecula has been twice named "The Best City in Riverside County to live in" by The Press-Enterprise.
Tax revenues generated by the many shopping opportunities have allowed the city to provide a solid infrastructure, low crime rate, fairly clean air, and an abundance of cultural and recreational programs.
Just south of central Temecula, the Pechanga Tribe of American Indians operate the Pechanga Resort and Entertainment Center where visitors can enjoy gaming, boxing, or concerts.
Award-winning schools within the Temecula Valley Unified School District such as Great Oak High School offer many programs to assist students as well as a career-technology program designed to prepare students for direct entry to the workplace. The staff is comprised of a group of highly qualified, idealistic educators who are taking advantage of the opportunity to try some new methods of assessment and instruction.
