We begin this memorable day with an included southwestern lunch buffet at The Hacienda (same owner as Tivoli Terrace in Laguna Beach), a historic estate built in 1901 that was once part of an orange and avocado ranch. The whitewashed adobe and charming courtyard exhibit southwest style at its best with garden courtyards, fountains, romantic balconies entwined in ivy, grand staircases and antiques. Next, we venture to the lovely Bowers Museum, one of California’s finest museums, for a docent-guided tour of the special limited-time exhibit, American Visionary: John F. Kennedy’s Life and Times. It celebrates the life, political career, and extraordinary vision of one of the country’s most admired and most charismatic presidents. No single politician was photographed more than JFK – from his direct congressional bid as a decorated war hero in 1948, to his fairytale marriage to Jacqueline Bouvier in 1953 to his run for the White House, his role as Commander-In-Chief, his commitment to the arts, his travels around the world, and the final tragedy in Dallas. American Visionary captures the dramatic scope of Kennedy’s life through the presentation of over 70 photographs and is the most exhaustively researched collections of Kennedy photos ever assembled. The exhibition is produced in association with the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library. Also enjoy time to browse the Bowers’ permanent collection and lovely gallery store.
