Temecula is known for its golf courses, hot-air balloons, wineries, and Pechanga Casino, but that doesn’t mean the kids have to stay home! In fact, Temecula is host to plenty of events and destinations for families with kids.
Pennypickle’s is essentially a hands-on, interactive science museum for kids – it’s truly a child’s dream! With hands-on inventions, gadgets, experiments, and more, the award-winning Pennypickle’s Workshop promises that your child will have fun — and will learn all about science along the way.
With a busyness schedule readily available, and sessions broken down throughout the day, you can time your visit right to avoid crowds in this 7500-square-foot children’s museum decorated as Professor Pennypickle’s home.
What we especially love about Pennypickles is the attention to detail that that every room provides – every room is an adventure for the eyes, hands, and mind.
Get up close and personal with the resident alpacas at The Alpaca Hacienda. Schedule a tour where you and your kids will get to feed alpacas, learn about the friendly animals, and shop for items made from luxurious alpaca fleece.
There’s even a short tractor trailer ride that takes you and the little ones around the hacienda.
This indoor playground and party place lets kids try on different roles in an imaginary town. They can pretend to attend or teach at a university, rescue people as a firefighter, take on a role at the vet, and so much more.
Who doesn’t love fresh blueberries? Take your kiddos to the farm and let them pick their own blueberries for blueberry pie, blueberry pancakes, and blueberry muffins. Temecula Berry Company also hosts a daily chicken show, weekly story time, and movie nights.
Teach your kids the delicious fruits of a little hard work when you take them to pick their own strawberries during strawberry season. Follow Kenny’s Strawberry Farm’s Facebook page to keep yourself updated on their special events, like family-friendly paint classes, farm tours, festivals, brunches, and more.
When the temperatures rise, nothing feels better than playing in a refreshing pool. Add a twisty water slide to the experience, and you may never want to go home! Enjoy public swim and/or swim lessons throughout the summer.
A trip to the library is the perfect activity for any family, no matter the day or the weather. And along with checking out new books to read, the Ronald H. Roberts Temecula Public Library also offers plenty of additional (free!) family-friendly activities.
