Rose Parade Vacation Package Details

Fully immerse yourself in the pomp and circumstance of the 134th Rose Parade, then take the scenic route up the California coast to San Francisco.

Los Angeles is abuzz in the days leading up to the Rose Parade, and you'll be in the middle of the excitement. You'll enjoy behind-the-scenes access to the float barn where the flower-covered stars of the parade are getting their finishing touches by a huge team of volunteers. Add to that a private presentation and dinner with the Tournament of Roses Committee, and you'll be an expert by the time the parade begins. The day of the Rose Parade, your grandstand seats are perfectly placed for optimum parade viewing.

The excitement of the Rose Parade will fade into the background as you travel up the coast to scenic beachside towns and landmarks, including Santa Barbara, Pismo Beach, and Monterey. One of the grandest homes in the world, Hearst Castle, overlooks the waves in San Simeon. Is it any wonder that presidents and Golden Age movie stars looked forward to an invite?

Your journey ends in San Francisco with a tour of Alcatraz, the world's most notorious prison, followed by a tour of city's top landmarks. This is a New Year adventure you'll never forget!
