Things To Do In Southern California

We are working on this page

Our ranch is  located a few miles from I-15
in Temecula Valley which is in north San Diego County.
We are in the midst of vineyards surrounded
by large and small famous wineries which are famous for Best of California Wines.
The wineries offer wine tastings, fine dining, concerts and tours. Temecula is conveniently located to many of Southern California’s
most sought after and visited attractions.
These attractions in Temecula include: several Antiques stores,
Handmade Pottery and Art Galleries.
There you will find the opportunity to explore
a myriad of charming and bountiful
shops up and down the streets of Old Town Temecula.

There are opportunities for natural habitats preserves in Santa Rosa Plateau
for hiking and nature walking tours.
Temecula is also well-renowed for being a horse county.
There are several horse staples and several of them offer
horseback riding, hiking, biking, fishing
which are just short drives up or down the Coastal Region we call home
The Southern California golden beaches are within 45 minutes by heading west.
The MOUNTAIN Hikers, Bikers, and adventurers can enjoy beautiful
Palomar Mountains, Julian, and other areas, to the east.
Temecula Wine & Hotair Balloons Festival
 Temecula Hot Air Balloon Rides 
Sunrise hot air balloon rides over the Temecula Valley wine 
country in Southern California. 
One-hour flights include champagne, orange juice, continental
 breakfast and souvenir photo.

Your flight adventure begins before sunrise at a local winery in Temecula where we will meet your party. The inflation of the gentle giant begins as the sun comes up over the valley. You may participate or sit back and enjoy the show. You will then board the balloon for your picturesque flight. The ground crew will capture your special moment on film. Your souvenir photo will be presented to you upon landing in a special picture card.

You will spend 60 to 75 minutes in the air observing vineyards, citrus groves, wild life, and estate homes. Upon landing the ground crew will meet your balloon where you will toast to a successful flight with chilled Champagne and orange juice. While the pilot and crew pack the balloon up you will be treated to a continental breakfast served picnic style. Temecula sunrise flights are offered year around, seven days a week, weather permitting.

Enjoy the day in Temecula-Southern California's hidden treasure!
