This insane year is rounding out awfully quick. About six weeks left and we have moved just enough times to fit in a story for every week remaining in 2016.
The first park we stayed at really set the bar, one we didn’t know we had. I knew Temecula was a nice area, but I had no idea prior to moving there that they were hiding such a gem of an RV resort.
The park had plenty to do. Starting with the fact that it is attached to a casino. Not being much of gamblers, we were skeptical of it as a great fit for us. Well, our luck would have it…(; that watching people risk money was way more fun than actually participating.
We ARE food people though, so we took really well to the variety and convince of 24 hour restaurants, coffee, and desserts in the casino. And plenty of other amenities to check out for your self.
The best part though, was the shuttle. From one call, they pick you up at your park spot and take you to the front doors of the casino.
Aside from the perks of the RV resort, Temecula showed us some great stuff! Of course we took a wine tour, and I should shout out to Groupon being a huge help with that. It was a couple of hours with an informative walk through, tastings, and even a food pairing from the onsite bistro. Great price and super fun afternoon. We also took a cooking class at a local shop, another Groupon find!
We were able to pick and try some grapes, straight off of the vine.
The downside was 100 degree weather. The upside was chilled wine!
There are plenty of areas to stroll through, even a huge sports park that was very active throughout the week. Ashe was a fan.
Another great and sort of tourist spot to walk around is Old Town Temecula. Lots to see, with great restaurants and quaint shops, they have something for everyone. We consistently returned to a coffee shop that had recently opened. I believe it was called, The Press Espresso, owned by a super sweet couple.
If I mention the coffee, I’m obligated to the pizza place also. Aside from Tony’s pizza in San Francisco, Bongiorno’s Pizzeria is worth us planning a trip back to Temecula.
The only thing keeping us away would be the constant and congested traffic in the wonderful city of Temecula. We would definitely stay at Pechanga again. Lots to do for any group!
