One of California’s several wine counties is near the city of Temecula. A holiday here means checking out the surrounding wineries and many fun activities with your family. Old Town Temecula is a storehouse of the history of this city with its quaint shops and charming buildings. Another great way to soak up the Californian sun when in Temecula is by heading out to one of the many golf courses in the vicinity. The best time to sample the wines produced here is during the Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival that is held in June every year. The festival, held at Lake Skinner, offers hot-air balloon rides along with tasting, events and games. Temecula also brings a little bit of Spain with itself with the running with the bulls event in summer.
