The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State

Temecula, Calif.

Distance: 87 miles one-way. Let wine snobs snicker when they hear you spent a weekend at a vineyard in Temecula. I took a friend for an overnight stay at the South Coast Winery Resort & Spa (34843 Rancho California Road; [951] 587-9463,, a 39-acre slice of nirvana where relaxation is inescapable. Twenty-four hours wasn't nearly enough time to enjoy the premises. -- Ryan Ritchie
