Explore Temecula

Temecula Valley, a tourist's paradise.  Just 20 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean exists a Mediterranean climate sports enthusiasts love.  From the lush greens on numerous championship golf courses to blue skies perfect for hot air ballooning, this valley virtually beckons, "Come visit and play!"  Horseback riding, hiking, fishing, boating, and cycling are just a few of the outdoor activities to be enjoyed.
 

  History buffs, antique collectors and window shoppers will take a step back in time wandering the streets of Old Town Temecula viewing rustic buildings, sidewalks, and store fronts reminiscent of our historic golden west.  The town was born in 1882 when the California Railroad came through the valley.  "Old Town" Temecula was the site of the Butterfield Overland Stagecoach Stop and California's first inland Post Office.  Sam Hicks Monument, made from a granite boulder 11 feet high weighing 15 tons, honors 56 important people who influenced the unique and rugged character of Temecula.  You'll still feel the presence of mountain men like Jedediah Smith and Kit Carson who once "passed this way" in addition to authors like Helen Hunt-Jackson and Earl Stanley Gardner.
 
 
Entering Wine Country, vistas of rolling hills are covered with vineyards, dotted with uniquely designed wineries.  From French chateaux to hacienda style, each vintner offers an interesting spot for wine tasting, a tour or picnic.  Want to leave the driving to someone else?  Hop on a guided wine or limousine tour.  
  The perfect opportunity to begin or enhance your wine collection, the valley produces some of the finest varietals to be found. The valley hosts some of the finest dining in the state.  In historic old town, Temecula wine country, the golf resorts and other fine restaurants and eating establishments, the variety of dining choices will satisfy any appetite.
 
Temecula prides itself on hosting entertaining and exciting activities for all ages.  There are fine wines, great music, and a sky full of magical color at the Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival, rock and roll and vintage cars at the Rod Run, the old town gunfighters dueling it out at Western Days, music and movies at the International Film and Music Festival, entertainment and excitement at Pechanga Resort and Casino, jazz concerts and fabulous dinners at the wineries, farmers market on Saturday morning's in old town.  The list continues...
 
 
  Great golf can be found in the Temecula area on 153 holes at eight golf courses, including seven championship courses.  Six of the instruction and practice facilities are also first class.  If you are looking for your best game of golf, search no more, you've found it!  Nearby minor league baseball is played in a beautiful new sports complex.  Mud baths and health spas promise to rejuvenate the mind and body.
 
With many specialty shops and restaurants, the ever expanding Promenade Mall, and fifteen minutes North, Lake Elsinore Outlets, challenge the seasoned shopper.  Modest, refined, rustic, or refurbished, Temecula offers a variety of accommodation alternatives from busy resorts, inns, hotels and motels to leisurely bed & breakfast establishments and the invigorating natural settings of our campgrounds and RV parks.

 

 

The City of Temecula has helped ensure a balance in residential, business and industrial growth.  Planned community residences with grassy common areas and excellent schools, extensive state-of-the-art parks and recreation areas, and "town center" style shopping plazas are just a few of the qualities that make the Temecula Valley an enriching place to live and play.  Please accept our invitation and "Visit for a lifetime, or stay for the day!"
