You can leave your rose-coloured glasses at home when you pack your bags for America’s favourite New Year’s celebration. Everything is coming up roses on this special tour of Los Angeles, starting with a pre-countdown gala complete with beats, bites, and bubbly. The celebration continues New Year’s Day at Pasadena’s famous Tournament of Roses Parade where you’ll enjoy reserved grandstand seats, an official commemorative program, and prime viewing of the spectacular floral floats and marching bands from around the world. Truly stop and smell the roses at the pre-parade viewing area where you can get up close to the fragrant, fantastic creations. Other sweet experiences include guided sightseeing in Los Angeles, a visit to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, a special post-parade lunch, and a farewell dinner floating on board the RMS Queen Mary.
If your New Year’s resolution is to travel more, why wait? Surf’s up at the 70 miles of beaches along Southern California’s most laidback city. Hang ten or simply hang out in San Diego’s renowned zoo, museums, and eclectic neighbourhoods. Half the fun of this extension to your Los Angeles holiday is the scenic train ride here from La-La Land.
