Los Angeles . . . . . . . .Surf and Sun for Everyone
Our #1 selling Senior Class Trip in Los Angeles starts when you arrive from your overnight travel at Universal Studios Hollywood with an all Day Pass including such shows as “Revenge of the Mummy”, “Jurassic Park”, “The Simpsons”, “Terminator II in 3D”, “The Blues Brothers”, “Studio Tour with King Kong 3D, “Shrek in 4D”, Special Effects Stage and more. At closing we will actually stay in the park and proceed to the famous Hard Rock Cafe for dinner at around 6:30pm. We will then load up the motor coach and head over to check-in after this adventuresome day and dinner. Most of our student groups choose (and it's one of our favorite hotels) the beautiful Holiday Inn La Mirada-offering high speed wireless, cable TV, fitness center, whirlpool and a large outdoor heated pool.
The 9:00am breakfast the next day will be at the Red Robin which is located on-site at your hotel. Then we'll proceed on a fascinating, fast paced tour of Los Angeles and Hollywood with our own expert step-on-guide. From La Brea Tar Pits to the Hollywood Walk of Fame at Grauman's Chinese Theater, from the famous LA Flea Market to the famous Rodeo Drive our guide will give you a whirl wind 3 ½ hour sightseeing tour. Our next stop is the beach in beautiful Santa Monica where we will gather for lunch at Perry's Outdoor Beach Grill. There we will have a complete lunch with dessert and beverages plus we can keep our chairs and tables on the beach after lunch for a 3 hour beach party including paddle boards and volley ball equipment for the beach plus frisbees, beach balls and foam footballs for our use on the beach. Our groups even get free-single speed beach bikes for biking along Santa Monica's wonderful boardwalk located a few yards away. After our beach party at approximately 4:30pm we will be able to use the City Park's showers (next door) to rinse off the California sand and change into some dry clothing.
That second evening in California, immediately after our beach party, we will head about two blocks away to the always fun Santa Monica's Pacific Pier Amusement Park. Free ride tickets and a dinner voucher will be available to each student. Most groups develop a base of operation in the group picnic area overlooking the ocean and set a rendezvous schedule every hour. This is California's only “Coney Island” style park. Watch for young Hollywood celebs such as Justin Bieber or Selena Gomez to name a few, after dark
After breakfast on your third and final day pack your bags, check out of your room and load the coach for Disney fun. Either of the Disney Parks can be chosen but most students will choose the traditional Disneyland Experience. Some groups choose to depart at the park until it gets dark and some stay all the way through the fireworks. We can't wait to see you in sunny California!
