Day 1

Dec 30

Toronto to Los Angeles Meals Included: Dinner

Today we fly non-stop from Toronto to Los Angeles—the City of Angels. We'll be met by a local-guide who will show us the highlights of Hollywood, Rodeo Drive and the Sunset Strip. We'll be staying at the Hilton in Woodland Hills. All of their hotel rooms were recently remodeled so it feels like a brand-new hotel.

Day 2

Dec 31

Los Angeles Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Experience the magic of the Rose Parade floats before they make their debut in the parade! During the final stages of preparation, a variety of seeds, bark, fruits, vegetables, grasses and flowers are applied to the floats by both professionals and amateurs. We'll have the opportunity to view their tedious work and take a number of pictures. These creative folks are very friendly and enjoy answering your questions. You'll appreciate the parade so much more after seeing the float decorating process.

After lunch we'll board electric carts for a VIP behind-the-scenes Warner Bros Studio Tour in Burbank. This is a wonderful opportunity to see one of Hollywood's most famous motion picture and television studios. We’ll have an early New Year's Eve dinner tonight as we have an early start tomorrow for the parade.
