  • Visit the Christmas tree in Old Town or at the Temecula Duck Pond. Snap a photo in front of the holiday decorations.
  • How often does the City of Temecula turn a park into an ice skating rink? Only once a year for the holidays! Stop by Temecula on Ice located at Town Square Park while it’s operating from December 12 through January 5 and take your picture in front of the rink. Even if you don’t plan on hitting the ice, you can purchase a cup of hot chocolate from one of the food vendors to stay warm while you’re there.
  •  Ring in the new year in front of City Hall at the City’s NYE Grape Drop and don’t forget to take a selfie!
