California’s Beloved Cultural Icons
Day 1 – Travel west to California. The motorcoch passes through Palm Springs and San Bernadino on the way to Simi Valley, home of the Ronald Reagan Library. Perched atop a hill with sweeping views of the south land, the Library is one of California’s most beautiful and unique destinations.
The museum features continually changing temporary exhibits and a permanent exhibit covering President Reagan’s life. A full scale replica of the Oval Office is a prominent feature. Other parts of the exhibit focus on Reagan’s ranch, the presidential retreat Camp David, life in the White House, and First Lady Nancy Reagan. Audio guides are available for an additional ($7) fee.
In Air Force One Pavilion, walk onboard the actual Air Force One aircraft, tail number 27000, which flew seven U.S. presidents. The hilltop grounds provide expansive views of the area, a re-creation of a portion of the White House Lawn, and a piece of the Berlin Wall. An F-14 Tomcat is also located on the grounds.
