Get to know Menifee

Menifee’s motto, “Gem of the Valley,” is no trope: The city sat atop a prosperous quartz lode discovered by its namesake, miner Luther Menifee Wilson, and diamonds are an iterative theme found on street signs and other elements throughout town. Though it’s often considered a suburb of Riverside, Menifee has a distinctive character all its own, spanning the neighborhoods of Sun City, Quail Valley, Paloma Valley and Romoland. It’s one of few Southern California communities with available land in an economic development corridor, positioning it as one of the region’s top hotspots for growth. With a mild, Mediterranean climate, expect to enjoy lots of sunshine throughout the year. A thoughtful blend of historical and modern, not to mention close proximity to parks, lakes and outdoor recreation opportunities, make this Temecula Wine Country community a great place to visit—and an even better place to live.

Living in Temecula Wine Country

Meet a dynamic region that’s equal parts scenic suburb, rustic-chic resort and unspoiled high desert wilderness. Celebrated for its dry climate, watercolor landscapes and equidistance to the Los Angeles and San Diego metros, it’s the gateway to Palm Springs and the greater Coachella Valley — home to the eponymous music festival and iconic Joshua Tree National Park. The Temecula Valley AVA, historically a thriving winemaking region, has experienced a renaissance as of late, bottling award-winning vintages and playing host to a growing gourmet scene that’s pinging the radars of epicureans near and far. Booming development in recent decades transitioned the area’s once largely-agricultural towns to populous self-sufficient commercial centers, with well-stocked Main Streets full of eclectic shops and splashy sidewalk-table eateries. You'll also find championship golf, polo clubs, and a bevy of museums and attractions to explore.
