Canyon Lake is a unique city where many feel as if they are on vacation all the time. This city is a gated community where golf carts are driven from the neighborhoods into the local country club and Canyon Lake Town Center across the street. Many come here from Orange County and the South Bay area finding you can purchase a waterfront home for half the price. The lake is serene yet full of life in the summer. With the beaches and parks, you never have to leave Canyon Lake. Throughout the year Canyon Lake has many community activities for families such as the Boat Parade, Fiesta Days, Taco Tuesdays and of course the Golf Cart Parade just to name a few. If you would like a tour of some of the homes here, contact me directly I’d love to show you where dreams are made…A bit of paradise awaits you. Aprile 951.545.7855
