Living in Murrieta

Murrieta is a city of just over 100,000 in southern California, situated between Los Angeles and San Diego. The city has experienced a recent boom in population, growing by 234% between 2000 and 2010. It is no wonder then, that it calls itself “The Future of Southern California”. The city is a popular commuter town, with many residents travelling to jobs in the nearby urban areas. Murrieta also has its own attractions, such as the Mulligan Family Fun Center and, for nature lovers, the Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve. Expats living in Murrieta will find a pleasant and well to do city, with the second lowest crime levels of any US city with a population greater than 100,000. In addition, there are a number of fine schools and good local colleges for those expatriates who are moving to Murrieta with their family. With so many new people in the city, InterNations is a great place to connect with other expats in Murrieta and get an inside track on the city.

Moving to Murrieta

The arrival of Interstate 15 in the early 1980s was a major reason for the rapid growth of the town. This made it much easier to reach the other major cities in the region. I-215 also runs through the city and both California State Route 79 and Historic US Route 395 serve Murrieta. There is a general aviation airport at nearby Riverside County and current proposals for a new high speed rail link. In the city itself, the Riverside Transit Agency provides local public transport. New expatriates in Murrieta will find many modern housing developments and good quality residential areas. To find out which area is best, why not consult other expats living in Murrieta on the forums and discussion boards at InterNations? Or even if the details of your move have already been ironed out, you can always use InterNations to simply socialize and network with a global expat community of like-minded people.

Working in Murrieta

Expats in Murrieta will find that the local economy is dominated by education and healthcare, with retail being the other main employer. That said, most of the local population will commute to the nearby San Diego or Los Angeles metropolitan areas for work. The central position of Murrieta opens up these huge economies to any expat in Murrieta, while providing a comfortable and attractive place to live in. Getting in touch with other expatriates living and working in Murrieta at InterNations is an excellent method of keeping up to date with the local economy and uncovering potential professional opportunities.
