A Riverside county, CA (few miles from SD county) city, which I live a good 20 miles from. 30 square miles of land, about 100K people, and lots of construcion work going on. They make lots of wine there. Crime is 20% less than the national average, which I think is nice.
Um, the Temecula Embassy Suites hotel by the Rancho California Rd exit, on the 15 Freeway about 10 miles from the SD county border.
