Have Fun This Summer at Sommers Bend

This summer in Temecula, CA, is shaping up to be a great one. With so many activities for all ages and tastes, it’ll be hard to find time to do them all. To help you have the best summer yet, here are a few popular things and destinations around town that you don’t want to miss.

First up, Temecula Wine Country E-Bikes are a fun way to see Southern California’s vineyards. Each bike comes equipped with everything you need to zoom around, including an optional carrier bag for the bottles you pick up along the way. Take your pick of routes too: a leisurely ride through historic Old Town’s tasting rooms or more of a challenge through the valley’s lush hills.

Speaking of wineries, treat your friends and family to some of the best in the world. With the largest concentration of vineyards in Southern California, nearly 50 producers boast the finest cabernets, merlots, zinfandels, Syrah, chardonnays and pinot noir. Explore the backcountry from the scenic vantage points on one of the popular guided tours or simply head out on your own with one of these suggested maps for a fun and informative way to see Temecula’s wine-growing region. Tasting rooms across the valley host summer events regularly like the Friday Night Live Music series at Thornton Winery and wine and truffle pairings at Sugarplum Zoo and Chocolates with Chapin Family Vineyards.

And while there are plenty of grapes to go around, don’t forget to sample a taste of the local spirit by enjoying craft cocktails, vodka or moonshine at one of the many distilleries in Temecula Valley. Keep an eye out for Galway Spirits’ event page to see when you can catch shows in the downtown business district—and sometimes fine cigars—while sipping on timeless spirits that are uniquely modern.

With a multitude of public art projects, visit sculptures, murals, mosaics and more in downtown Temecula, an authentic historic district with beautiful tree-lined boulevards encircling over a hundred shops, restaurants and art venues. Hear the buzz of conversation at a small-plate restaurant, grab a beer at a pub or listen to live music buskers on your way to Jazz at The Merc, every Thursday at 7:30PM.

When you live in a place as fun as ours, your choices are as lively and limitless as your imagination. Float into the horizon on a hot-air balloon or ride horseback through trails between vineyards. Whatever you get into, summers in Temecula Valley Wine Country are the perfect blend of sun-drenched days, gorgeous views and experiences of a lifetime.
