Murrieta, CA

Located about 65 miles north of San Diego, Murrieta is primarily a residential community. It is considered the safest city in Riverside County and the 44th safest city in the United States. After experiencing dramatic growth following Interstate 15's expansion in the 1980s, Murrieta incorporated as a city in 1991. Today, it has a population of approximately 100,000, many of whom headed north after the cost of living in San Diego County became too expensive. About a third of the population is between 25 and 44 years old, and another third is 18 and under.


Murrieta is filled with upscale houses that cost a little more than homes elsewhere in the region. However, the recent real-estate crash has affected Murrieta adversely, with prices dropping and foreclosures increasing.

Some of Murrieta's most notable neighborhoods include:


The retail sector employs the majority of people in Murrieta, followed by education, small sector services and health care. The city also has a small manufacturing base. Many Murrieta residents work outside the city.

Murrieta's sudden population boom means that the city's economy - which consists primarily of small businesses - is constantly expanding. The addition of the Rancho Springs Medical Center has boosted employment in health care, and the planned Loma Linda University Medical Center is expected to add around 500 jobs to the area.





Azusa Pacific University, a Christian college, has a regional center in Murrieta. Murrieta is also located close to several other colleges and universities, including:


Murrieta sports fans root for professional sports teams from both Los Angeles and San Diego, including:



Murrieta residents get their news from two local newspapers-North County Timesand the Press-Enterprise, as well as from the Los Angeles Times and the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Most TV and radio stations aired in Murrieta are from Los Angeles, though residents also receive some broadcast channels from Palm Springs.
