Why San Jacinto Valley?

For decades San Jacinto Valley has been a “best kept” secret for Snowbirds.  Each winter thousands of Snowbirds visit the valley via RV or look to stay in rental property.

Those who winter in the San Jacinto Valley return year after year.  There are many reasons to be a Snowbird in the San Jacinto Valley, but here are our Top 5 to get you started:

1. Great Location for Snowbirds

You simply can not be more centralized in Southern California. Most major Southern California destinations and attractions are less than 90 miles away. San Jacinto Valley is a wonderful place for Snowbirds to be able to take advantage of all that Southern California offers those who visit.

2. Weather

Spectacular, end of story. With over 340 days of sunshine, it never gets too hot or too cold.
Here are the average high and low temperatures (via The Weather Channel) that Snowbirds can expect in the San Jacinto Valley:

October – 83/50
November – 73/42
December – 66/36
January – 67/37
February – 67/39
March – 71/43
April – 76/46
May – 83/51

Snowbirds are active!

3. Value

This is a huge reason that Snowbirds stay in the San Jacinto Valley. Once you begin to compare prices in other areas in Southern California, you’ll see clearly that the area is your best value.

4. Activities

You can be as busy as you would like to be in the San Jacinto Valley. Annual events, multicultural offerings, Valley-Wide Recreation and Parks District (one of the most successful recreation agencies in California offering everything from classes to trips to events), volunteering options are all found in the area.

5. Relaxation

There’s no “hustle and bustle” for Snowbirds in the San Jacinto Valley. While being centrally located in Southern California, the valley is rural at heart and has kept the small town appeal it has always been known for. The wide-open spaces found here, due in large part to the agricultural heritage of the valley, make it unique in Southern California and a perfect place for Snowbirds to enjoy the time you have to spend escaping the cold.
