    Murrieta is a mid-size and fast-growing palm-studded city based in California's Riverside County, part of the state's infamous Inland Empire. The city offers abundant golden sunshine, a bounty of outdoor activities, and plenty of family-friendly attractions. Murrieta vacation rentals include inner-city cottages, family homes, and apartments, as well as epic ranches and mansions dotted in the surrounding hilly countryside. Wine aficionados can book a Murrieta vacation rental in the vineyard-blanketed Temecula Valley wine region, just outside the city.

    Out and about in Murrieta

    Get your golf gear on, book in a tee off time, and head out for a round on one of Murrieta's several 18-hole golf courses _ these courses and clubs are sprinkled around the city's edges, boasting peaceful views across the coppery desert landscape. Alternatively, if you're traveling with the kids, take them to one of Murrieta's wacky mini-golf courses. Nature enthusiasts can venture out from their Murrieta vacation rentals to the Santa Rosa Plateau, a nearby ecological reserve spanning across purple needle grass prairie and California oak woodland.

    History and heritage in downtown Murrieta

    In downtown Murrieta, architecture enthusiasts can see the St Martha Catholic Church, a modern and sprawling low-rise brownstone complex _ fronted by palms and capped with a star-white crucifix _ with elements of adobe and Spanish Mission architecture. Another central Murrieta monument is the Murrieta Veterans Memorial, a towering granite obelisk based in the tranquil Town Square Park, built to commemorate those who served in WWII and the Korean War. Outside of Murrieta, stop by the Temecula Visitor Center _ 7 miles south of downtown _ where you can book a wine-tasting tour through the valley's many wineries.

    Spring sunshine and warmth in Murrieta

    Murrieta enjoys a Mediterranean climate with a staggering 263 days of sunshine per year. This means that during the height of summer _ July through mid-September _ temperatures reach the low to mid 90s. This makes hiking through the city's surrounding wilderness difficult, but it does create prime pool conditions _ so if traveling in summer, book a Murrieta vacation rental with an outdoor swimming pool. The spring season _ from April through June _ is a perfect time to travel for outdoor activities. The temperatures range from low 70s to low 80s, and the fragrant Riverside County flora will be in full bloom.

    Vineyards, mountains, and wild waterfalls near Murrieta

    Murrieta is surrounded by wilderness and wildlife. The Temecula Valley wine region lies to the immediate south and east of Murrieta, with its peaceful and rolling vine-clad hills. A few miles east the road leads to Lake Skinner, a shimmering manmade reservoir perfect for fishing, camping, and sailing. But for truly untamed wilderness, visit the Santa Rosa Plateau, and beyond that, the southeastern stretch of the Santa Ana Mountains, where oak pine and cypress house bobcats, coyotes, and mountain lions. Hike to the Eden-like Tenaja Falls, where crystalline water cascades down a 150-foot rock face.
