San Jacinto Valley has been waiting for you!

With the San Jacinto Mountains as a backdrop, you’ll love our peaks and valleys.

The San Jacinto Valley is home to the cities of San Jacinto and Hemet, as well as the Soboba Band of Luiseño Indians. Rich in Spanish culture, history, and recreational opportunities, the San Jacinto Valley is one of the oldest destinations in Southern California.

With annual events celebrating our multicultural heritage (like the Ramona Pageant which is the nation’s longest running outdoor drama and California’s official outdoor play), the San Jacinto Valley offers a variety of experiences unique to the area.

A popular destination for “Snowbirds” for decades, the San Jacinto Valley invites you to visit and enjoy this very special part of Southern California.
