Murrieta, California is a city with over 100 thousand residents in Southern California, located about halfway between San Bernadino and San Diego. Murrieta has experienced a tremendous population increase in recent years, as the number of local residents more than doubled between 2000 and 2010.
Murrieta, which was a vast sheep ranch in the late 1800's, was named in honor of Spanish businessman Esequial Murrieta. 30 years ago, the newly-built Interstate 15 began to turn Murrieta into a “bedroom community” that serves as a suburban home for many who commute to work in Orange County, Riverside, San Diego, and other urban areas. In 2009, Murrieta was recognized as the 2nd safest large city (over 100 thousand residents) in the United States, behind Irvine, California.
