Single-day tours include visits to places of cultural, historical and sometimes technical/scientific significance. Locations have included the Mission Inn, Griffith Observatory, Palm Springs Wind Farms, Descanso Gardens, the Getty Center, and Edwards Air Force Base. Meals are often included at restaurants that include Lawry’s North Woods Inn, Clifton’s Cafeteria and the Tam O’Shanter Inn. In addition, tours include attending concerts at the Disney Concert Hall, as well as performances of Broadway plays. Full payment for single-day tours is required at the time of registration. Weekday single-day tours depart from the La Bonita Park parking lot, 1440 W. Whittier Boulevard, and on weekends from the Marketplace shopping center parking lot, 1801 W. Imperial Highway (adjacent to Sprouts and the Regal Theater). Please note that at this time, our tour provider requires that travelers be up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccinations, and proof of vaccination is required, as well as a specific waiver.
Multi-Day tours are offered to California’s Central Coast, Death Valley, Yosemite, and San Francisco. The division also offers extended national and international tours to locations throughout America, as well as locations in Canada, England, and Italy. You can register for multi-day tours in person or by phone at the Community Center. Your initial payment at the time of registration will be a required deposit only; you will be billed for the remainder of the multi-day tour fees by Good Times Travel.
