Vail Headquarters has been the heart of Temecula since 1867. Thanks to decades of preservation and restoration efforts, it is now a living historic park and a destination for specialty restaurants, boutique stores, and special events. Once again, Vail Headquarters is a place that brings the community together, introduces visitors to our local heritage, and welcomes everybody to enjoy the best of today’s Temecula.
