Recharge at one of the many restaurants offering home-style BBQ, authentic Mexican and Southern California Wine Country-inspired cuisine. Continue your afternoon exploring the many "games" Pechanga Resort & Casino has to offer. Visit the gift shops for Luiseno Indian-inspired gifts, perfect mementos of your visit to the valley.

End your day of exploration with dinner at one of Pechanga's many fine and casual-dining restaurants, followed by a show or concert at the resort's various entertainment venues.

Day Two

Play. Temecula’s year-round mild climate is perfect for exploring the vineyards and tasting all they have to offer. Get a start with an energizing breakfast at one of the many wine country resorts. Then, it’s off to play at one of the award-winning wineries.

After a morning at play in the wineries, rejuvenate with a wine country lunch before heading back out for your afternoon among the vines. Complete your day dining al fresco in the vineyards as you watch the sunset over the Southern California sky.


Day Three

Relax. After two days of exploring and playing, it’s time to relax and reflect upon your time in Temecula Valley. For some, an early round of golf and breakfast at the "turn" is the perfect way to relax as morning mist floats along the fairway. For others, breakfast and then a deep tissue massage at one of our inviting full-service spas is ideal. 

As morning turns to afternoon, revisit Old Town for a casual lunch and some antique shopping or venture back to the vineyards for more wine and relaxation.
