Menifee is the Gateway to Southern California’s Temecula Valley Wine Country where you’ll find nearly 50 charming wineries nestled along the backroads with plans for more. The secret to their unrivaled flavor? The area’s viticulture has an ideal climate, boasting a whopping 260 days of sun per year.

Nestled amid Southern California’s crystal-clear lakes and majestic moun-tains, Menifee is also a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. Golf lovers can tee off in style at the greens of Menifee Lakes Country Club, while daredevils get their hearts racing with nearby skydiving. For a more serene experience, soar over the valleys in a hot air balloon, taking in the breathtaking vistas. If you’re feeling adventurous, hop on a bike or go hiking in the beautiful San Gorgonio, San Jacinto, Palomar, or San Gabriel Mountains surrounding Menifee. For more adventure, hit the Salt Creek Trail, spanning from Menifee to Hemet and Lake Elsinore. It’s a hot spot for biking, horseback riding and walking.

Calling Water Lovers

There are water sports galore from Diamond Valley Lake to Lake Elsinore, Lake Perris and Wine Country’s Lake Skinner. Whether you’re angling a big catch or kayaking to your heart’s content, there’s no shortage of adrenaline-pumping fun to be had.

Calling History Buffs

Menifee’s Historical Museum is the place to be for a true-to-life glimpse of the local past. If you’re up for a citywide adventure, check out Menifee’s Historical Marker Tour, tracing the footsteps of the city’s early settlers from the 1800s. Plus, rev up your engines and feast your eyes on some sweet rides at the nationally televised Motte Historical Car Museum.

Hungry for More?

Menifee’s growing culinary scene is on fire! With two award-winning chefs at the helm, Savage Chef Bar & Grill is a mecca for fusion-inspired American dishes run by Chef Dylan Soro and Chef Mario Amaral. These ace chefs bring their top-shelf executive kitchen skills from such places as Todd English and Spago in Las Vegas. The inventive chef-driven menu is a feast for the taste buds, filled with succulent steaks and custom-made cocktails.

But the world doesn’t end at the city limits. Tacos & Tequila Grill and Cantina, Melody Thai Cuisine and Mama’s Kitchen Korean Restaurant add some international flair to the mix. Their dishes are packed with flavor, inspired by family recipes passed down from generations. The newly opened Exquisite Tapas, which brings together a global selection of small plates and craft cocktails, is perfect for anyone seeking international gourmet flavors in a relaxing up-scale lounge environment.
