October 11, 2017 - Los Angeles

Arrive: 7:00 am

Depart: 11:00 pm

The City of Angels always hovers between dream and reality. Once a near-forgotten colonial outpost, the pueblo metamorphosed into an agrarian paradise before reinventing itself as a movie colony. Perhaps no other city owes so much to the technological innovations of the 20th century, from the automobile to the airplane.  Little wonder that LA is often described as the ‘dream machine.’  In LA, reinvention is a way of life. Yet this talent for change has created a city with a rich ethnic diversity and a sizzling culture. LA is the source for trends that migrate across the country and then the world. Where else can you enjoy a Thai taco or munch on a kosher burrito? Or travel from downtown’s high rises to the beaches of Malibu, shopping in Beverly Hills along the way?

October 12, 2017 - Catalina Island

Arrive: 8:00 am

Depart: 5:00  pm

Santa Catalina Island has drawn Southern Californians since the mid-1820s. That’s when the Pimungan tribe settled there, attracted by the island’s rich marine life. But Catalina’s true popularity dates from 1919, the year Chicago chewing gum tycoon William Wrigley purchased the island development. Overnight Catalina secured its reputation as a playground for wealthy magnates and movie stars.

Since 1975, the Santa Catalina Island Conservancy has held most of Catalina in trust. Buffalo, imported for a 1924 movie, roam the island’s sere uplands. Offshore kelp beds shelter brightly colored Garibaldi fish, sea lions and seals. Gray whales pass on their annual migration, and dolphins are a frequent sight. It’s no wonder the island – home to America’s oldest fishing club – continues to woo weekend yachtsmen, deep-sea fishermen and divers as well as casual visitors content to explore Avalon’s quaint lanes.

October 13, 2017 - Santa Barbara

Arrive: 7:00 am

Depart: 5:00 pm

“Welcome to Paradise,” is a fitting expression for those visiting the coastal city of Santa Barbara. Called the American Riviera, Santa Barbara is a place where food, art, history, fashion, wine and sunshine mix to create a delightful and unique experience for the visitor. Charming Spanish and Moorish style buildings graced by brilliantly-colored bougainvillea, palm-lined beaches, a warm Mediterranean climate, charming sidewalk cafés and a pristine seaside setting are some of the aesthetic reasons for visiting Santa Barbara.  Just outside of Santa Barbara, lies the Santa Ynez Valley which is home to numerous world-renowned wineries. The scenic beauty of the dramatic mountains, lush valleys and oak trees is only surpassed by the rich flavors of the wines produced in the area.

October 14, 2017 - San Francisco

Arrive: 1:00 pm

San Francisco has it all: a colorful history, superb restaurants, sophisticated museums, world-class shopping, and that elusive air of romance and abandon that’s part of the tang of the city.  There is so much to see and do during your time in this beautiful city.  Enjoy.
