Alex on Neatorama threw out an open invitation for bloggers to write about their home towns. "Lastly, an open invitation to anyone who want to write 4 Neat Things About My Hometown (format up to you) - let me know, and I'll link to your blog. If it's particularly funny or interesting, I'll put it on the front page so here goes!
1.Temecula Wineries --- We have great, beautiful wineries. South Coast, Falkners, Miramonte, Leonesse Cellars, Finsinger, Ponte, Weins Family Cellars, Bella Vista Cilurzo, Mount Palomar, Hart, Callaway, Keyways, Maurice Carrie, La Cereza, Long Shadow Ranch and Winery, Thornton's (a champagne winery), Stuart Cellars, Churon, Wilson Creek (you must try their Almond Champagne). Drive down Rancho California Road and see the beautiful rolling hills with rows and rows of vines and one beautiful winery after another.
2. The infamous Temecula Duck Pond --- What a wonderful small town thing to see! Our neat duck pond with walks surrounding it so people can stroll and feed the ducks! Neat bronze bronze statues and families with their cameras---You don't see things like that in your big cities.
3. Pechanga Casino and Resort --- Pechanga is our Indian Casino right here in town. It can give any casino in Las Vegas competition. The building is large and flashy and wonderful. It has a club that looks like it should be in Chicago or New York City and of course it has a great hotel as part of the casino. Sooooo, put everything on red and let it ride----or----get your bag of nickles and get ready to rumble. Oh did I forget to mention all of the celebrities that have shows at Pechanga?
4. La Cresta, Murrieta --- Our own answer to the Beverly Hills---only better, in my opinion, of course. Gorgeous homes on five acre parcels. Rolling hills with lots of white rail fences, horses, and even one helicopter! Every different type of architecture--all great---You will find everything from multimillionaires to regular working class folks but the most amazing thing is how all of the residents fit together so well---Nice people who are welcoming and gracious. There is no differences or exclusions there---how many areas can people even say that they know their neighbors---much less in an area of 5 acre parcels?
