Menifee is a charming city in Riverside County, California, and is considered part of the greater Los Angeles area. It’s located just 15 miles north of the Temecula wine country. In the 1880s, a miner in the area by the name of Luther Menifee Wilson discovered a quartz lode, and that is how the city derived its name. This city was initially developed in the 1960s as a retirement community but later became more inviting to visitors as they added more parks, shops, and restaurants. Mt. San Jacinto College opened a campus in Menifee in 1990, which brought about an influx of a younger population.

Menifee is home to an abundance of parks and recreational centers where you can check out picturesque views and scenic wonders. Have a picnic in La Ladera Park and enjoy an afternoon of tennis matches and basketball games, wonderfully set to a beautiful mountainous backdrop. Bring your furry friends out to enjoy an adventure at the off-leash Aldergate Dog Park with plenty of shade and friendly dog-owners. Indulge in a round of golf at the Menifee Lakes Country Club or enroll your child in their junior golf clinic. Take a lesson from a skilled instructor while soaking in the sun and enjoying the breathtaking lake view.
Are you an avid car collector? Then be sure to check out the Motte Historical Museum. The Motte family was one of the oldest pioneering families in the area, and this museum was built to share their history and experiences in farming, and also to show off an extensive antique car collection. Menifee is a mecca for arts, crafts, fairs, and festivals. Menifee Moonlight Markets is a place where you can enjoy concerts, delicious food, and family fun activities. Each week there is a creative theme and a movie shown on the big screen in the park. A multicultural festival is held each year that brings together live performances, cultural cuisine, diverse craft booths, and music from around the world. One of the most anticipated festivals is the annual Family Campout event. Families come together at Silver Star Park to enjoy dinner, games, s’ mores, and a moonlight movie. Win the scavenger hunt competition or tell scary stories around the campfire. It’s sure to be an adventure you and your family will never forget.
