First choice will be Old Town Temecula. “Old Town Temecula” is a collection of historic 1890s buildings, hotels, specialty food stores, boutiques, gift and collectible stores, and a large amount of antique dealers. Old Town is also home to such events as car shows, western days, and summer entertainment. (Check out the photo gallery for old town pictures).
Old Town is also home to the Temecula Museum which features exhibits about the local band of Native Americans and the local natural history and city development. The newly completed City Hall is located in Old Town. Old Town Temecula has been around since 1859 when the California Railroad came through the valley and local investors created the first Bank, and retains many historical features. In Old Town Temecula you’ll find that elusive piece of art you’ve been looking for, that usual and tasteful gift for the person who has everything, then finish a perfect day with a wonderful meal at one of the many independent restaurants( paid for by the guests). It’s an absolute delight!
Second Choice is Pechanga Casino. A Las Vegas style casino right in the middle of Temecula Wine Country. A vast 200,000+ square foot gaming floor makes Pechanga California’s biggest casino. Designed with player comfort in mind, the casino is equipped with a state-of-the-art air filtration system and offers extensive non-smoking areas.
