Summerfest Tour of Temecula Valley (Old Town and Wine Country) | #TemeculaValleyFAM @Visit_Temecula

Most recently a group of bloggers and I went on a Tour of Temecula with Visit Temecula Valley. We took a walking tour of Old Town Temecula, visited a couple of their wineries, and attended a Balloon Glow for their annual Balloon & Wine Festival. I haven’t been to Old Town Temecula, and I really wanted to see what their Balloon & Wine Festival was all about. Believe it or not, in one afternoon we were able to visit seven stops within our “Walking Tour of Temecula” (all right before we checked in at our hotel). It was eventful, nonetheless, and we were in for a full day of fun!
