Tournament of Roses with San Diego

You can leave your rose-colored glasses at home when you pack your bags for America’s favorite 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 post-parade viewing area where you can get up close to the fragrant, fantastic creations. Other quintessentially Californian experiences include guided sightseeing in Los Angeles, a visit to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, a special New Year’s Day lunch, and a farewell dinner at a locally loved restaurant.
