What you'll learn in this tour class:

A unique and exclusive opportunity to tour this estate that is rich with historical significance, as it has welcomed Queen Elizabeth II, U.S. presidents and Hollywood icons. Opened to visitors in 2012, this Rancho Mirage estate was the private home of Walter Annenberg, a diplomat and a giant in American media. It was the setting of Hollywood parties, elegant brunches, and holiday feasts attended by the top echelon of the entertainment and political worlds. On an exclusive 90-minute docent-guided tour of the historic house and grounds you'll walk in the footsteps of presidents and royals and learn about its architecture, interior design and the history of the estate as a private residence and a high-level retreat center. 

At the Sunnylands Center enjoy time at leisure to watch the films, browse the art from the Annenberg Collection, and interact with the exhibits that highlight the legacy of philanthropists Walter and Leonore Annenberg. An impressive array of modern sculpture and canvased work by many 19th and 20th century artists including Picasso is on display. You'll be captivated by 40 years of history in the "Room of Memories", which features framed photos, letters and memorabilia gifted by the famous icons, presidents and royalty the Annenbergs hosted. The nine acres of gardens feature 1.25 miles of walking paths and 53,000 individual plants (of 50 different species) planted like an Impressionist canvas. Enjoy an included boxed lunch on the grounds. We'll make a stop at Hadley's, famous for their breads, nuts and date shakes. 

Offsite Tour Location:

Unless otherwise instructed, your tour guide and motorcoach will pick you up at the Glendale College upper parking lot (Lot B). Parking at the college is $3 per day.
