December 31, 2021 — CHOICE OF HOW TO SPEND THE DAY AND A NEW YEAR’S EVE GALA CELEBRATION
Start your day with a buffet breakfast before heading off to your choice of attractions:
Option #1 – HOLLYWOOD CITY TOUR AND STUDIO TOUR: Experience Hollywood like never before! Take a guided tour of a working Hollywood Studio. You’ll see where the movie magic is made and learn about the rich history of the film industry. The day would not be complete without a Hollywood City Tour. The history of Hollywood will come to life as you explore Hollywood’s Past and Present. Your knowledgeable tour guide will take you to the center of the glitz and glam. Visit Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and much more. Lunch will be on your own at Universal CityWalk.
Option #2 – CATALINA ISLAND: You’ll board one of the Catalina Express ferries for a short one-hour cruise to the island. These vessels offer both inside and outside seating, as well as a snack bar and restroom facilities onboard for your comfort. You’ll log some 26 miles as you sail along the Pacific ocean over to Catalina Island. Once you arrive, the day is yours to get acquainted with the storybook town of Avalon, which you’ll find is packed with boutiques, restaurants, and things to do! You might want to take a tour of the historic Casino, take a guided tour of Avalon, or rent a golf cart or bicycle to sightsee on your own this afternoon.
The evening is filled with elegant dining, dancing to a live band, and the fun of a live “Monte Carlo” style casino. There will be hats and party favors, a drawing for exciting prizes, and a champagne toast to ring in 2022! (BREAKFAST AND DINNER)
