Join us on this adventure that provides a great way to experience a completely different side of Los Angeles!  Today we explore the 1,000 acre Saddlerock Ranch and Vineyard that is nestled in the scenic hills of Malibu.  Board custom-built open-air Safari vehicles with a trusty guide and driver team aboard for a 90-minute animal and wine-tasting safari.  We'll make stops along our journey to take in the scenery, taste local wines and get up close and personal with animals you never knew were Angelinos too!  Many of these exotic animals, who all welcome you with open "hooves," came to the Ranch to retire after successful careers in Hollywood:  zebras, camels, alpacas, bison and more.  All the wines that you will be tasting are sourced from local vineyards, featuring the tastes and flavors of the casual wine-making culture alive in the Santa Monica Mountains.  You may wander about the grounds enjoying the scenic surroundings as you sip and savor each wine and enjoy tasty accompaniments.  For those who do not drink wine, water and lemonade can be provided if notice is given with your reservation.  Preceding the safari, enjoy time at leisure for lunch on your own at the Malibu Country Mart - a pleasantly informal, yet trendy, outdoor shopping and dining complex where the celebrities often dine.  Suggested:  flat, closed-toe shoes.

You are cordially invited to a memorable day at the state-of-the-art, Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum.  This is always and especially wonderful time to visit the museum because of the special exhibit which features more than 25 exquisitely decorated Christmas trees.  Upon arrival, enjoy a delicious barbecue buffet lunch of beef sirloin, apricot glazed chicken and all the fixins' beneath the wing of Air Force Once.  The Air Force One pavilion features a presidential limousine and secret service suburban, a Marine One helicopter and the Air Force One airplane that served seven U.S.. Presidents.  An included docent-guided tour of the museum will highlight artifacts within the 18 galleries that pay tribute to America's 40th president.  Visit a full-scale replica of his Oval Office, see a piece of the Berlin Wall, explore interactive exhibits, read letters that provide a glimpse into Ronal and Nancy's devoted marriage and pay your respects at their final resting place with spectacular views of the Conejo Valley.  Enjoy time at leisure to explore a special limited-time Titanic exhibit that provides a fascinating look at the ill-fated ship, combining real artifacts with the real stories of the people onboard.  Artifacts from passengers, dispersed over time, will be reunited in this exhibit for the first time in over 100 years -  in a way no museum has done before.  See a deck chair (one of only eight known to exist), the only known complete set of boarding documents and tickets, a pocket watch from a third class victim, wreck wood from the ship, the insurance claim form of the "Unsinkable" Molly Brown and other passengers for loss of life and property, and props and costumes from the 1997 movie, Titanic.
