La Cresta is perched in the hills above the cities of Murrieta and Temecula, which have all of the amenities of big cities, but are far less congested than Los Angeles, San Diego and Orange County.

Down “the Hill” from La Cresta, you will find:  award-winning restaurants; a vibrant indoor shopping mall; Historic Murrieta; Old Town Temecula; full medical facilities, including four hospitals; top-notch schools; Pechanga Casino – one of California’s largest; farmers markets; movie theaters; Temecula Wine County, including over 40 wineries and tasting rooms.

If you don’t find everything you need here, LA, San Diego, Orange County, Disneyland, Legoland, Palm Springs, Big Bear Mountain and more are within a one and a half hour drive!
