Vacation Overview

Go behind the scenes in Los Angeles to experience the Tournament of Roses, America's most famous New Year's celebration. Ring in the New Year with a festive dinner and dance gala complete with hats, live music, party favors, and champagne. Celebrate New Year’s Day by watching the Tournament of Roses Parade in reserved grandstand seats only minutes from the beginning of the parade route. Later, get up close and personal with the parade floats at the post-parade viewing—a highlight of the trip for many—and smell the roses and other flowers that adorn the floats. Other highlights of the trip include a farewell dinner on board the RMS Queen Mary and a visit to either the Getty Museum to see its extensive art collection or the Ronald Regan Presidential Library, celebrating the life of the 40th U.S. President. This year, don’t just watch the Tournament of Roses parade on TV; see it live with prime viewing seats!

Years of Experience: 19 years

My interest in the national parks began as a child on summer vacations in Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. In college, I studied Botany, Ichthyology, Mammology, and Ornithology, and I began working in Yellowstone as a summer seasonal guide 25 years ago. I have also worked in Sequoia, the Everglades, and Alaska as a naturalist guide. Whether it's beachcombing in Florida, birding in the Everglades, or hiking in the Tetons, as long as I'm in nature, I'm where I want to be.
