Temecula homes are located in the southern tip of Riverside County and bordering San Diego County. The community is one of the oldest in the area and has a rich history, beginning with the Luiseno and Cahuilla Indian tribes, continuing through the Spanish rancho period. Today the city has become a destination for tourists, attracted by the lovely scenery, wine country, Old Town, resort golfing and many festivals. There are many great employment opportunities both in the community and in nearby San Diego and Riverside. In addition, the Temecula Valley Unified School District consistently scores highest on standardized testing among schools in Riverside County.
Temecula real estate owners have a commitment both to preserving their fascinating history and investing in the city’s future. Not only are the schools top-notch, the park system provides many opportunities for kids to play, join sports teams, and take art classes. Young people can participate in annual events like the annual science fair; Youth Innovation Conference, where teens learn about the business world; the internship/fellowship program in city government; and the college and vocational school fair. Each summer, local businesses are encouraged to employ youth in the “Just Add One” program.
The Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival is held the last weekend of June and includes balloon launches and wine tasting. The city is also dedicated to supporting the arts. The Temecula Valley Arts League offers support to working artists, as well as art classes to the public. Shakespeare in the Vines performs the Bard’s best plays throughout the year and offers opportunities for youth to get involved in drama.
