    LA Times: Wine, root beer and rolling hills in Temecula

    My sister lives in this area...while pretty low key, even we tend to lose sight of how much there is to do and/or enjoy.

    Having read this, I want to try Old Town Root Beer Co. the next time I'm home!

    Yes? Do tell. I've managed to avoid the place.

    The town has some cute shops and places to eat. It's a good rest stop between LAX and SAN. No more. No less.
    Allow 60 - 90 minutes.

    I lived in Temecula for 10yrs. They have some great restaurants in the wineries. A lot more to do than you think. Penchaga is a nice casino. Old town has a lot of nice bars and restaurants. Great weekend location.

    We did a day trip from San Diego in February and had a good time. Lots of cool shops on Old Town Front Street, and a great hole-in-the-wall fast-foodish Mexican place that had delicious carne asada. I was hoping to find a place that sold Fallbrook wine (the winery was nearby but not taking visitors) but alas, no luck. Still, it was an interesting day. We go to San Diego yearly and will likely be back to Temecula at some point.
