Top 3 Reasons to Move to Idyllwild


It is impossible to miss the natural beauty – it is everywhere you turn. Surrounded by state and national forest land, Idyllwild is located at 5300 ft in elevation and offers amazing opportunities for hiking and outdoor adventure. Visitors and residents alike enjoy camping, bird and wildlife watching, rock climbing, and fishing at nearby Lake Hemet.

2. ART

Idyllwild is also famous for being an artist’s community. Artists find inspiration in the beauty of our forests. If you are an art connoisseur, you’ll enjoy the many galleries and exhibits to view and purchase a one-of-a-kind piece to display in your home or business. If you’re an artist, you’ll want to consider joining our local Idyllwild Alliance.

Once it’s safe to gather again, you won’t want to miss out on the world-class shows and performances that take place on the campus of the prestigious Idyllwild Arts Academy.


In my opinion, the sense of family in this community is the most valuable asset we have. We truly are a one-for-all and all-for-one community here. In my 20 years I have seen the residents rally around each other in times of need and times of celebration. In the spirit of any good small town, we stick together.
