Named one of the “10 Best Wine Travel Destinations” by Wine Enthusiast, the Temecula Valley is SoCal’s answer to other wine-centric regions in California. Its location about 90 miles south of Los Angeles, and 60 miles from San Diego, Orange County and Palm Springs, helps it to attract nearly three million visitors yearly. A short trip will likely include wineries (there’s more than 40), Old Town Temecula and a visit to Pechanga Resort Casino, but other events and attractions like championship golf, the Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival or its International Film Festival might capture your attention, as well. Old Town features a Foodie District, craft breweries, speakeasies, shops, hotels and entertainment along wooden boardwalks and rustic, 1880s western-era buildings. Food-wise, it runs the gamut, but one spot – Devilicious Eatery & Tap Room – was named “Best Sandwich Place” and appeared on TV shows including Eat Street and Let’s Eat. A popular farmers’ market offers fresh produce, eggs, flowers and artisan items each Saturday morning.
