I was surprised at how legit Pechanga was. My husband and I spent our anniversary going to the comedy club, having dinner and dancing. Only bad part was the smoke smell but you would get that at any casino.

By far the best place to bring in the New Year!! You get the best of Vegas right here in town. Amazing DJ and the most friendliest people.

All the casinos in San Diego have no smoking areas. Sycuan has a room and it is lovely. This place is full of smoke. I asked where the no smoking area was. They told me in and in front of all restaurants. All the restaurants...More

Our short visit to Temecula (1 Replies)
We just returned from a short but wonderfully relaxing trip to Temecula. The area is a hidden gem. I hope it stays of the commercialization radar a bit longer before turning into another Napa. We stayed at Hampton Inn. Large clean rooms, friendly staff, short walk to Old Town. Took a tour with Grapeline. Visited 4 wineries in one day. Lunch included. By my estimate, drank over a bottle of wine. The following day, took Uber to see other wineries. Didn't like Wilson Creek. Too crowded;...More

Laguna Beach gets my vote too. Try Las Brisas if you want a taste of mexican with your view or The Beachcomber in Crystal Cove..check out their website....they are practically on the beach!

Thanks for the great advise. We really enjoyed our trip to Temcula. For those not wanting to read the book that is my trip report: Embassy Suites is great as long as you request a suite and not a double room. Their free breakfast and managers reception are wonderful. I also liked their big pool and hot tub. We only at a few restaurants but enjoyed them all. If you get the chance, try Mad Madelines & Rosa's Cantina in Old Town. Also check out the jerky store & olive oil company....More
