Located halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego, Temecula Valley is the perfect romantic getaway for gay couples. Whether you live in Southern California or just visiting one of our gayborhoods, you can be enjoying the good life in wine country within two hours. For a truly memorable visit that without straining your wallet, consider planning your stay midweek. Here are five top reasons to  find yourself in this chic and happening  destination on a weekday.

5. Midweek events at Pechanga Resort & Casino
Like all casino and resorts, Pechanga get creative to draw visitors to their entertainment and gaming venues during the slow weekdays. From headline concerts to new Bingo matinee sessions there’s sure to be something to strike your fancy.

4. Easier golf tee-time availability
Seven impressive golf courses sprinkle the Temecula Wine Country, often offering better tee-time availability  on weekdays. Time to hit the links.

3.Enjoy old town Temecula’s tasting trail at a slower pace
Artisanal eateries and wine tasting rooms are bombarded on the weekends. Weekdays allow visitors to linger at local favorites such the Temecula Olive Oil Company, Old Town Root Beer Company, the Lorimar Winery Old Town Tasting Room and more.

2. More affordable accommodations and activities
Not only are hotels, motels and resorts priced more competitively midweek, but many special excursions like hot air balloons, tours and golf can be had at reduced rates.

1.Take your time enjoying the vineyards,
Less busy weekdays are the perfect opportunity to indulge yourself in a few of the 40 or so wineries that span the valley. A slower pace means that you have the opportunity to enjoy more one on one time with winemakers, discussing their wonderful selection of world class vino.
