About TemeculaHaving served as an important stop for the Butterfield Stagecoach Route and later as a station on the railroad between San Bernardino and San Diego, Temecula was founded in 1882 and today is a fast-growing bedroom community for Riverside and San Diego counties.
“Old Town Temecula,” on Old Town Front Street between Rancho California Road and SR 79S, preserves historic buildings and is an antiques shopper's delight. The countryside, known as Temecula Valley Southern California Wine Country, supports extensive horse ranches, vineyards and wineries. The free pamphlet “Play Among the Vineyards” with a map spotting the local wineries is available at the convention and visitors bureau or from The Temecula Valley Winegrowers Association; phone (951) 699-6586 or (800) 801-9463.
