Swing to Murrieta in your RV rental from RVshare! One of the fastest growing cities in California, Murrieta is a commuter town with its residents working in larger cities nearby. It was a small county town, which has its own ups and downs throughout its history but the passing of the Interstate 15, built in the early 1980s, played a significant role in the development and growth of the town. Murrieta reached a city status only in 1991 but is now the largest city in the Southwest Riverside County. The city, often called the “future of Southern California”, prides itself as a great place to live at and is evidenced by new dining, shopping and recreational options. It has also attracted a number of first rate healthcare facilities, and research and development/medical technology firms. Today, Murrieta enjoys its reputation as being one of the safest cities in California and a home to thousands of people who are proud residents of the city.
