TEMECULA, Calif. — While Old Town Temecula does two “Grape Drops” to celebrate New Year’s in the Big Apple at 9 p.m. PST, and Midnight PST to celebrate the local love of wine, the city also is hosting over 75,000 visitors who annually attend the parties at Pechanga Casino Resort. The four diamond spa, golf and casino resort has parties going on in 7 different venues, each with different music, food and vibes. Similar to an event at the Queen Mary in Long Beach (where midnight fireworks are included – queenmary.com), Pechanga boasts the most fun to be had in Southern California wine country.
For a more intimate party, rock band included, Temecula Creek Inn is featuring a New Year’s Party and offers room packages, plus the convenience of easy parking, a beautiful, open resort location, less crowds and equal fun for those who don’t require 75,000 people to make them happy.
