I love Old Town Temecula. It has such a nice "old west feel" about it, a wide variety of restaurants and shops. There seems to always be a lot of construction going on though which can make getting around somewhat difficult and parking can be an issue. Find a parking spot and walk around.

Old Town Temecula is one on my favorite places to visit, I love the walk up and back along the boardwalk, the fresh vegetable market, the Artisan Table/organic restaurant, the Starbucks, the old Bridge, The Bank, and the many shops along the way.

Old Town Temecula gets good reviews here. It is a cute street with an Old West feel to it. It was fine, but nothing special. We were there on a Monday afternoon and it was pretty crowded. On weekend's I bet this place is packed. There seems to be pretty good parking, but on a busy day that probably fills... More

Old Town Temecula is a wonderful place just to unwind. Just walking around is very enjoyable with lots of shops to browse or for grabbing a bite to eat. There are many food choices to pick from which includes the somewhat fast food to the fine dining. When events are going on you can enjoy the local flair or sit... More

I love the sat market...I get my meat and veggies for the week. I have a tamale and walk around and think about the menu for the week based on what looks the best. I come early and sometimes go back later to get a good deal as they are closing.

Old town has always given me a bit of anxiety. It has always been a bit crowded on the weekends, however, it tends to draw an interesting crowd after dark. Constant fights and mean people. I think it is getting so much better now that there are more upscale restaurants and bars coming in. The shops are fun to browse... More

I love walking around and looking at different kinds of shops. Old town Temecula did not disappoint. We went to and olive oil shop and many other tourist and non-tourist shops and I bought some fun stuff. Would definitely go back.

I went to Old Town Temecula for a wedding and had no idea about the Historic downtown. I was pleasantly surprised, there are a lot of options for bars and restaurants along with live music. Very fun atmosphere, but many homeless (that weren't a problem, it just took away from the charm).

Thank Shane B
