Stay safe

Hemet has had an increasing drugs and crime problem caused in large part by the weak local economy(causing many locals to jokingly refer to their town as "Hemeth"). Tourists are, as a rule, not targeted, but it would still be wise to exercise caution in the city center and the neighbourhood to the west of it after dark and steer clear of motorcycle gangs at all times.

Get out

Idyllwild is a mountain resort 30 minutes by car from Hemet.
