  • description:
    Temecula and Murrieta have essentially merged into one huge residential area, with a huge winery tourism industry; while Murrieta has quadrupled in population. Murrieta experienced a 133.7% population increase between 2000 and 2010, according to the 2010 recent census, making Murrieta one of the fastest-growing cities in the state. Can't wait to see the 2020 census stats!
