Murrieta experienced a 133.7% population increase between 2000 and 2010, according to the most recent census, making Murrieta one of the fastest growing cities in the state. This population boom in 2010 surpassed the population of the historically larger and more commercial city of Temecula to the south for the first time since the incorporation of either city.

Largely residential in character, Murrieta is typically characterized as a commuter town, with many of its residents commuting to jobs in San Diego County, Orange County, Los Angeles County, Temecula, and Camp Pendleton. Murrieta is bordered by Temecula to the south and the newly incorporated cities of Menifee and Wildomar to the north. Murrieta is located in the center of the Los Angeles-San Diego Mega-region which contains a population of 22 million people. Murrieta's city motto is "Gem of the Valley," and a diamond is prominently featured on its seal as well as various elements throughout the city, such as street signs and freeway interchange.
