The Temecula Valley community invites you to make yourself at home in our laid-back slice of paradise that’s equal parts town and country. Whether you come for the wine and craft beer, the artisans and antiques or Pechanga Resort Casino and Old Town, Temecula promises to surprise and delight you at every turn.
Located in Southern California’s rural region with a mild year-round climate, Temecula is an easy drive from Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego and Palm Springs. We are Southern California’s Wine Country—and so much more.
The passionate dreamers and entrepreneurs who have shaped the Temecula of today take advantage of the region’s rich history, unique growing conditions and natural landscape. And they delight in sharing the fruits of their labors and our homegrown gems with guests like you.
While we’re no longer a small town by the numbers, Temecula retains its small-town spirit and traditional charms. Pair that with a strong spirit of creativity and an innovative drive, and you have a down-to-Earth destination where the classic complements the new.
This guide was crafted to help you plan a memorable experience in the Temecula Valley, whether you’re a first-time visitor or consider yourself a “regular”. Discover where to sip and savor. Learn the lay of the land, and find inspiration on where to get out and play. From a souvenir shopping guide and hot air ballooning how-to’s, to restaurants for romance and places to stay, it’s our honor and privilege to introduce you to the very best of Temecula.
