If you live in Southern California and want a mini vacation you need to head down to Temecula. I spent one night there recently and it was too short of a time. I will go back to spend more time in Temecula, it’s a great getaway that is only a short drive away. I did see a lot while I was there.

I went to so many cool places, ate at really cute places and really thought about getting a place there. I’ll tell you I was pleasantly surprised with what a great city it is. First of all the people are so warm and welcoming. Genuinely kind people every where I went which makes the city feel like home. I also love how the city feels small but has so much new development.
