Tour Itinerary

Day 1 (Dec. 29) Today we fly to Southern California.   Upon arrival, we board the deluxe motorcoach to our   hotel accommodations, which is the Hilton Garden Inn, located in Montebello, for the next three nights. The hotel is surrounded by a beautiful championship golf course.

Day 2 (Dec. 30) After breakfast, our morning begins at the Float Barn, with a look at a few of the stunning floats that will be featured in the Rose Parade. From there, we attend the Tournament of Roses “Bandfest” that will feature the prize winning bands of the 2020 Rose Parade. This will give  everyone a chance to see these talented musicians, dancers and auxiliary performers in  action. B

Day 3 (Dec. 31) Our day begins with an exciting look at the magic of Warner Brother’s Studios, with a special studio tour featuring the creation of some of the film’s most beloved moments. Next, we visit the Huntington  Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens. The  Huntington Library is comprised of three separate       entities: the Library with its collection of rare and historic books including a  Gutenburg Bible, the Huntington Art Gallery, devoted primarily to British and French Art of the 18th and 19th centuries, including Gainsborough’s Blue Boy, and the Botanical Gardens, which features  a lovely Chinese Garden. We return to our hotel with time to freshen up for New Year’s Eve. The party is complete with a fabulous dinner, dancing, and a champagne toast to 2020! Dance to the sounds of our favorite D.J.
