Temecula Travel Guide: 74 reviews and 215 photos


Temecula, California is located south of Corona and north of San Diego on the I-15 highway. Easy to reach by car, this is one city that is growing by leaps and bounds. Becoming famous for the wine that is produced in the Temecula Valley, the city also has a wonderful part called "Old Town" that was established in 1859.

Many motels, hotels, B&B's are located in and around Temecula as are Indian Casinos, Pechanga and Pala, for those that want a little Las Vegas with their wine country tasting tour. Pechanga is a mega resort with eight restaurants and over 2000 slot and video gambling games. Old Town grabs the old west and antique stores get the attention. Restaurants and bars line Front Street for a little relaxing time in Old Town.

    Hi Larry, greets from Aix where I am enjoying a big, hearty local cab/syrah before I head out for dinner. BTW, that is a scary pic! Karl

    Great page Larry! My sister and her daughter finally stopped along the way to see me to explore this area. Shannon didn't realize how neat it was here. I know I had fun exploring it.

    Excellent tips. Must see if I can get hold of some Temecula wine. Had some other Californian wines which was very nice indeed ;-)

    It looks inviting to see the sun and beauty around your area. I used to travel a lot to San Fran, San Diego, LA, but most and best around Newport Beach region. Great State

    Hi Larry! It's really a winner's page! Congratulations for the great job done. I enjoyed the Baloon video. I did lot of flying during my collage days but never on a Baloon. India lacks all these sports.
