ANNENBERG ESTATE AT SUNNYLANDS CENTER AND GARDENS
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014
Be among the lucky few to tour the famed Annenberg Sunnylands estate in Rancho Mirage, which recently opened it’s doors to the public for the first time in 2012. Once the private home of Walter Annenberg, a diplomat and a giant in the American media, and his wife, Leonore, it was the setting of glittering parties, elegant Sunday brunches, and holiday fetes attended by the top echelon of the entertainment and political worlds, including presidents, foreign dignitaries and royalty. During their lives, the Annenberg’s, who were dedicated to philanthropy, nurtured and developed their dream of transforming their beloved estate into a retreat for world peace, as well as a visitors center for the arts and education. You’ll embark on a guided tour of this exclusive retreat, which is set against the backdrop of the scenic San Jacinto Mountains. Marvel at the famed “pink wall,” stunning art collections, reflecting pools, nine-hole golf course, and magnificent desert gardens where you can walk a medieval-style labyrinth. The estate limits entry to just one bus group per year, so don’t miss out! Your trip includes a box lunch at the estate.
