Oenophiles Gravitate Toward Temecula Valley

Temecula Valley is located 500 miles (800 km) south of San Francisco, resulting in a slightly higher angle to the sun and greater solar intensity. The popularity of Temecula Valley Wine Country and Pechanga Resort & Casino have been the driving forces in a fourfold increase in visitor spending in the valley. Temecula Valley is a huge tourist destination for seniors on weekends.

The City of Temecula

Temecula is well known for its championship golf courses, a climate perfect for serene and beautiful hot-air ballooning adventures, and award-winning wineries nestled in 3,000 acres of picturesque wine country, but that’s just the beginning. The community’s mix of entertaining activities and friendly residents makes visitors want to return again and again. Located in the heart of Temecula, the Old Town district blends historic buildings with over 640 antique dealers, unique shopping, and restaurants. Old Town Temecula is the site of many special events including car shows, semi-annual Rod Runs, Western Days, and summer weekend entertainment.

Take a jaunt in a horse-drawn carriage or stroll along the wooden boardwalks. Take a step back in time and experience the rich history of the Temecula Valley from its discovery to today. A visit to the Temecula Valley Museum promises a fun and informational day for the entire family. Picnic facilities and a children’s playground just outside the museum’s front door in a picturesque park completes a pleasurable day.
