Free or Cheap Stuff to Do

Temecula and Murrieta have a lot of fun things to do for less than $50.

Are you enjoying the fun stuff to do in Temecula and Murrieta for free to $50? Well, are you? No. This is not a rhetorical question. You see, a little under a year ago, I started a meetup group titled Fun Things to Do in Temecula-Murrieta for Free to $50.

Hi. My name is Jacqui Dobens, originally from L.A. and have been loving the valley for about 4 years now. I must admit that although originally I started the group because of my sister Janet  -- watch this video for more details http://youtu.be/7vGh-VXgJQI -- I must admit that I have enjoyed it exponentially since starting the group.

For the pink elephant in the room. You're right. It's also rather descriptive and accurately depicts our purpose.

To date, we have done everything from indoor karting, hiking, hanging out at farmers market, enjoying live music, attending free comedy at both Pechanga and the Edge and having a fabulous time enjoying horses, both trotting and a carriage ride.As a matter of fact, I am scheduling one today which I will post the invite shortly.

I have experienced many rewarding benefits since starting this group almost a year ago. Please believe that we do have fun. However, the more heart warming and touching serendipities has been the charitable, giving and philanthropic spirit that runs through these amazing group of people that I am honored to call my friends. They are some of the most thoughtful, kind, funny, hilarious people I know.

I recall when one of our TemMurrians friends was in need of household items to get back on track. Many, without hesitation, jumped in and helped someone that they may never know.

Now, you know what I mean about the caliber of people that I have had the pleasure of getting to know. For me, it's not about the numbers. Never has been. Don't get me wrong, of the ninety plus TemMurrians that have joined, I've met thus far 72 of them. I've scheduled events and been the only one that showed an interest, so I went and had a blast alone. I've gone hiking with one other person as well as with 19 of us. Each time it has been a fun event.

I'm always on the look out for fun, fresh and unique venues and events to attend, some I make up my self. If you know of anyone that meets our criteria, have them get in touch with me at funstufftodointemecula@gmail.com.

I'm always updating and, as much as I can, I resist the frustration of waiting for vendors to get back with me regarding scheduling, group discounts and the like. Most of the time it works out fine without a hitch. What makes it all worth it is when I see old friends reconnect and new friendships formed.

If you're new to the area and looking for things to do, or if you promised yourself you would get off the couch and out of the house, check us out. The worse that can happen is you will discover Fun Stuff to Do in Temecula Murrieta for Free to $50. Can't beat that now, can you?

Check out our youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/Temeculafunstuff2do. I've been having so much fun, I am way behind in postings. Working on that, my friend. Progress, not perfection, right?

Oh, by the way, we have both marrieds and singles, young and young at heart. You'll fit right in as long as you like to have fun. Can you tell yet what my driving force is? Hee hee. Looking forward to getting to know you.
