From antique stores to olive oil specialty stores this "Old Town" district won't fail to have something for everyone. The incredible variety of eats and drinks will keep your stomach filled to get to the next block. I love Saturdays for the farmers market but beware, it gets crowded! You'll find a specialty shops for Lavender, Cheese, Rootbeer, Cigars, Candy... More

If you haven't been to Temecula, you're missing a treat!! This old stop on the Butterfield Stage line has kept it's flavor of by-gone days in spite of a resurgence of considerable new development. As a matter of fact the new development is part of the charm as you walk around the lively, (Old Town Center), it feels as if... More

We have gone past Temecula on I-15 many times not knowing about the area, what a surprise! The old town section is not very big but you can spend time going through shops. There is a good selection of restaurants to chose from. There are several public parking areas so parking is not a problem. During the weekends some of... More

Old Temecula has some charm and worth a quick visit while in the area. My wife and others raved about it - but did concede it was very small.

I was hoping for more of an "authentic" town, but it has just been made to look like an old western town. Didn't spend much time here.

Between the boardwalk and the buildings that look like they came out of an old western movie, one really does feel like they have traveled back in time. There are lots of restaurants, pubs, wineries and shops. We went to the Visitor's Center and the people working there were very helpful. Despite the construction currently going on, we found that...

We walked around Old Town with friends and had a light lunch and then strolled around some more. There is a lot of charm in this part of Temecula and we enjoyed our visit.

It's quaint with lots of shops and restaurants, but parking is awful. Park several blocks away in a public lot.

The Gambling Cowboy restaurant was amazing. The atmosphere was great and the food was outstanding. I would highly recommend.

Shops, antique stores, pubs, restaurants, all in an old west setting. Also some great wine tasting in old town. The only drawback is that some shops close early.
