Welcome to Hemet, San Jacinto, and Menifee, located in Riverside County, California.
Our communities are situated in an area known as the Inland Empire of Southern California. The area is surrounded by mountain ranges and hills on all sides, with only a few natural passes to Los Angeles and Orange County to the West, San Diego County to the South, and Palm Springs to the East.
The natural beauty of the mountain rim on 320 degrees of the horizon is punctuated by a vertical elevation of over 10,000 in at least four places. The Inland Empire is perhaps the only place in the United States where you are 60 minutes from ski slopes and 60 minutes from the beach. The area offers many recreational activities including golfing, hiking, bicycling, swimming, tennis, and more.
The climate has long been a major reason for growth in our Valleys. Early Native Americans followed the seasons up and down the elevations for comfortable weather and food-gathering. Later, the climate attracted those seeking the health benefits of sunshine throughout the year. Today, the economy is one of the largest and fastest growing in the nation.
Our cities are close to several international airports including Ontario, San Diego, and Palm Springs. Major highways include the 10, 60, 215, and 15.
People have been attracted to the natural wonders of the area for years and continue to enjoy the natural amenities today. With a rich history, natural wealth, and a robust economy, the area is full opportunities for those seeking live/work/play quality of life.
