Temecula Overview

Less than 2 decades ago Temecula was a rural town just obtaining it's official cityhood; nowadays it has a thriving population of nearly 100,000 people. The city is rich with history, with it's first traces of settlers dating back to 1797. Historical landmarks, pictures, and preserved buildings are dotted throughout the Temecula valley.

Nature seekers are able to find peaceful solace in the nearby Santa Rosa Plateau, which affords hiking and access to local wildlife. Temecula's "wine country" contains several wineries which are open to the public for wine tasting and lunch, while hot-air balloons fill the morning sky. Several annual events such as the Balloon and Wine Festival, Hot Rod Run, and Tractor Races draw thousands of visitors, as well as locals, each year.

Although a rapidly growing city, Temecula still maintains its focus as a safe, family-oriented environment.
