Welcome to Temecula, California
Poetically dubbed the land "where the sun shines through the mist" by the original Native American stewards, Temecula (pronounced "ta-MECK-you-la" by locals) is truly a temperate but sun-drenched enclave in California's Inland Empire. Pacific breezes make it to this fertile valley (the population and popularity of which has skyrocketed since the 1970s) cooling the So Cal sun and making Temecula one of California's prime wine making regions, which still holds on to its small-town, country roots even in the face of growing development. Stay in Temecula for the annual Balloon & Wine Festival, seven championship golf courses, rustic Old Town Temecula, Vegas-style gaming at Pechanga Casino and, of course, a warming stint in Southern California's burgeoning balmy paradise.
