The Pasadena Tournament of Roses is a celebration more than a century old – a festival of flowers, music and sports unequaled anywhere else in the world. It’s America’s New Year Celebration, a greeting to the first day of the year, and a salute to the community spirit and love of pageantry that have thrived in Pasadena for more than 130 years.

Unpack once and enjoy a five-night stay in beautiful Orange County in Southern California. The tour features Orange County’s most famous sights and beach towns, including a visit the beautiful Mission San Juan Capistrano, one of the original missions built by the Spanish. Later head up Highway 1 for spectacular coastal views and visits to Laguna Beach and Newport Beach. That evening ring in the New Year with a New Year’s Eve Dinner Party that will be filled with music, dancing and Monte Carlo casino-style games. Ring in the New Year with a champagne toast!

Happy New Year and welcome to 2024! Get up early to experience all of the majesty of the Tournament of Roses Parade from reserved grandstand seats for the ultimate in up close viewing during the parade. After the parade enjoy lunch at famous Lawry’s Restaurant in Beverly Hills.

The next day gives you the opportunity to experience the Showcase of Floats, where the floral creations are parked for walk-around viewing.
