French Valley offers a bevy of can’t-miss things to do, from attending special events, to getting involved in the arts and learning about local history; to dining at independent restaurants and staying active at area parks. Being a great place to live also means being a great place to work. A thriving economy helps the tax base (so there’s more money for city improvements) and helps a city attract and retain talent. It’s no secret that schools and education opportunities are big motivating factors when choosing a best place to live, French Valley homes several private and public schools which are part of the Temecula Unified School district (one of the top ranked school districts in Southern California). The rural farmlands of southwest Riverside County’s French Valley have largely been transformed into housing developments for thousands of families.
