Hemet

lodginglodging reservations in Hemet

Well, if you are heading over to or thru Hemet, you may as well hit up the pine village of Idyllwild & Lake Hemet while you're out this way. Unless of course, you wanna spend time at the local Walmart in the urban mecca of asphalt, baking in 100 degree heat, or eating fast food.

The city called Hemet has a decent population of senior citizens, average folks, construction workers and sex offenders. Hemet is a centrally located Southern California city with plenty outdoor recreation surrounding it, but the town itself is nothing special. The view of the mountains is great. After a fierce winter storm clears and the sun breaks out, the snowy mountain is lit up golden w/ warm, sunset colors radiating on the fresh snow capped peak. Can be quite an impressive view from the valley.
