I was looking at several maps, and it looks like there are two options to get to Temecula from John Wayne Airport.
1. Go south on I-405 and I-5 to San Juan Capistrano and head west on Ortega Hwy to I-15 south.
2. Head north on 261 to 91, then south on I-15.
At least on paper, it seems like the distance isn't much different.
We should be leaving LA around 2:30pm on a Thursday in mid-October. Does anyone have suggestions?
