Granted, we live in this precious town, but even if we didn't, we'd drive from wherever to spend a day here! From charming antique shops to boutique wine shops, Old Town Temecula is a gem!

Loved it here! We stopped by for lunch and to do a bit of shopping after our stay at the South Coast resort. Very charming town, so many little shops and lots of places to eat. I cannot recall where we decided to have lunch, but the food was quite good. I really enjoyed it here and would like to... More

We covered the area in about two hours including lunch and had no problem finding a parking spot on the main street. Interesting drive over the mountain from Palm Desert! Wish we had arrived earlier to check out more of the wineries just a few minutes from the downtown area that afternoon. We did manage to visit Danza del Sol... More

Great place to hang out in the evening and early night. Restaurants for couples and familys. There is a jazz house, a playhouse, and many many shops. A revitalized area that is worth experiencing. Just need to be patient in finding parking.

Temecula is a huge dormitory of gate communities, the old town is a touristic trap and the wine estates are nice but lost in these huge real estate developments.

Great way to spen the afternoon wandering in and out of shops and experiencing the town and people. Home town feel, relaxed shopping and good dining choices. Great photo opportunities. Relaxing way to spend a day.

This is just a great little "old town". There is something for everyone! The dining options are great. The shops are unique, and it's magical during the holidays. I've never been there on a weekday or a weekend that it wasn't alive with lots to see and do.

Old Town Temecula is a great spot to enjoy. Park at the city garage free, electric car charging available too! The visitor centre is right on ground floor of the parking structure and they will steer you to the best places. See the old Bridge nearby. Our group included two ladies in their eighties and they were able to navigate... More
