It is a great community. I was raise in Poway and has everything you need.
I must admit, I moved to Temecula recently and it is like poway was 30 years ago.
It has newer schools and parks- excellent schools too!!
Employment, just got a real hospital, etc.
People are moving here, from Poway now, for the lower price in housing, but still getting everything else. well, not the access to the beaches... We make a day of it, if we want to go there...
