Since its early beginning, the Temecula Valley has always been a place where the combination of mild climate and beautiful rolling hills has attracted human settlement.
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”. The most popular interpretation of the meaning of “Temecula” is “Where the sun breaks through the mist.”
The first residents of the area were the Temecula Indians who resided throughout the surrounding hills. In fact, ancestors of the Temecula Indians were in this area as early as 900 A.D. The native people from here to the coast who shared the same language and culture became commonly known as the Luiseños, because many of their villages were once under the influence of Mission San Luis Rey.
Fast forward to today and Temecula is now well known for its championship golf courses, beautiful hot-air ballooning adventures, and award-winning wineries nestled throughout 3,000 acres of picturesque wine country, but that’s just the beginning. The community’s mix of entertaining activities and friendly residents makes visitors want to return again and again.
Located in the heart of Temecula, the Old Town district blends historic buildings with over 640 antique dealers, unique shopping, and restaurants. Old Town Temecula is the site of many special events including car shows, semi-annual Rod Runs, Western Days, and summer weekend entertainment. Take a jaunt in a horse-drawn carriage or stroll along the wooden boardwalks.
