Retaining the markings of its agricultural past, Hemet’s relatively rural character adds to its small town charm. But don’t let its quiet, tree lined streets and mountain views fool you. Hemet is home to a host of cultural outlets and eateries as well as boasting an intense shopping district conveniently located along the city’s main thoroughfare. In fact, a short drive along Florida Avenue will find such national brands as Fresh & Easy, Smart & Final, and Target.
Located at the base of the San Jacinto Mountains, Hemet enjoys mild winter temperatures with nearly year round sunshine and cool breezy nights. The great weather, dramatic desert views and variety of activities have made Hemet a favorite among wintering snowbirds and permanent retirees.
The area offers some truly stunning courses like Diamond Valley Golf Club. Hemet Valley’s many golf courses range from 9 to 18 holes with varying levels of difficulty.
Sure to be a hit with casual fishermen as well as serious anglers, Diamond Valley Lake is bi-weekly stocked with 2,000 lbs of rainbow trout during the fishing season. Miles of beautiful desert hiking trails follow the lake shore and offer an opportunity to enjoy the area’s unique wildflowers.
And if gaming is your thing, the Soboba Indian Casino is just 5 minutes away in nearby San Jacinto. Soboba features 2,000 slot machines, over 20 table games, two restaurants, a 12,000 seat entertainment pavilion and one huge sports lounge.
A little over an hour’s drive will see you in either Los Angeles or San Diego for larger entertainment venues like Disneyland and Sea World.
