Seniors Drop By Temecula


Temecula, a city in southwestern Riverside County, with a population of 100,097, is in the heart of southern California wine country. Temecula is a place where senior visitors will enjoy natural beauty, historic traditions, and modern conveniences.

Since its early beginning, the Temecula Valley has been a place where the combination of mild climate and beautiful rolling hills have attracted human settlement. Temecula is bordered by the City of Murrieta to the north and the Pechanga Indian Reservation and San Diego County to the south. The City of Temecula forms the southwestern anchor of the Inland Empire region.


The name Temecula comes from the Luiseño Indian word “Temecunga” – “temet” meaning “sun” and “-ngna” which means “place of”. The Spanish interpreted and spelled the word as “Temecula”.

Over the years, the meaning of “Temecula” has been translated into several different versions of this interpretation, including the most popular, which is “Where the sun breaks through the mist”. Its rich history is a major attraction for senior visitors to the area.

 Seniors Enjoy Tourist Destination


Temecula abounds in historical sites that include an old bank and the Mercantile building. The city is a prominent tourist destination. Senior travelers will enjoy the Temecula Valley Wine Country.

Old Town Temecula, championship golf courses and the Temecula Valley Polo Club are also attractive to visitors. The Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival and the Temecula Valley International Film Festival, attract a significant number of senior tourists.

 Old Town Temecula Draws Seniors


TripAdvisor enjoyed a visit to Temecula and notes 75 things you will want to consider as “must see” sites starting off with Old Town Temecula. I know that this is where my wife and I would start off our visit.

Then we would have to do some serious tasting at several of the wineries in the area and maybe drop a few coins at the Pechanga Casino and then consider one of six balloon rides in and around Temecula. I’ve alway wanted to do that, expecially over vinyards!

So sets your sites on wine country and plan to spend a few days in Temecula.  You will find it to abound in hospitality and of course great wine. It is a fun place for a visit as this video shows. -jeb
