Information About Retirement Community in Temecula

Temecula is a quaint California city nestled between Los Angeles and San Diego. According to Pechanga mythology, the city was believed to be the "meeting place" of Father Sky and Mother Earth. So, it should come as no surprise that Temecula is a derivative of the Indian word "Temecunga" which means "place of the sun." Given the city's subtropical climate, that is a pretty accurate description of the balmy temperatures its approximate 100,000 residents - 24% of whom are forty-five years old or older - can expect almost year-round. Tecula retirement communities offer a weather very enjoyable to most seniors.
