Temecula Valley filming locations encompass natural landscapes and open space including chaparral, prairie, and oak woodlands; untouched rolling hills and mountain ranges; and lakes – ample and small.

Real dirt roads lead seemingly to nowhere. Quality, circa 1890 structures include a preserved, stone house built by quarry men and a tall, historic space with venerable, brick walls and excellent acoustics. The hub of Temecula Valley is the 12-block, historic district – a Western-themed Old Town, one director acknowledged by saying, “Thank you for building this town, just for us!”
For filming locations, Temecula Valley also offers wooden barns and equestrian ranches; excellently designed golf courses embraced by nature, with expansive views and dramatic elevation changes; and a contemporary mall with a distinctive indoor-outdoor layout. The variety of Temecula Valley filming locations also features modern warehouses of varying expanse with characteristic loading docks and roll-up doors; suburban neighborhoods with late 20th-century and early 21st-century homes; and city parks with large lawns, established shade trees, lit ball fields and soccer fields, old-school play areas, and picnic tables.
