    Day 1

    Begin with a drive down through the western side of the Central Valley on Highway 33, arriving at Stewart and Jasper Orchards in time for a tour before lunch. In the company store you will find almonds, apricots and other fine goodies fresh from the neighboring orchards. Continue to the coast, arriving in San Luis Obispo in the late afternoon. Tonight, enjoy the cozy comfort of the inn along with cookies. Apple Farm Inn – 2 nights (L)

    Day 2

    A nice hot breakfast prepares you for a day of touring along the Central Coast. First up, explore the Grand Rooms of Hearst Castle. First called Sam’s Hill, this home is definitely an enchanted castle in December. In the afternoon, browse the little shops in Cambria or perhaps you’d rather visit the Elephant Seal Rookery in San Simeon? December is the month the females arrive to give birth to their 70 pound pups! Upon our return to the Apple Farm we will enjoy a light wine reception. Tonight, downtown San Luis Obispo comes alive with its weekly Farmer’s Market, voted one of the best in the entire state. A short trolley ride takes you to all the festivities; produce, arts and crafts, music and, of course, local foods for dinner. (FB,L)

  • Day 3

    Begin your last day with another hot and hearty breakfast. On our return to Sacramento, we make a brief stop in Salinas for lunch at the Steinbeck House. This quintessential American author truly has the story of local boy “done good.” While his writings were very controversial at the time they were written, at least according to many from his hometown, today Salinas is proud of their Nobel Prize-winning author. It just isn’t right to go to the Central Coast from Sacramento without stopping at Casa de Fruta… a familiar and folksy market, home to the “flippin’ cup.” Arrive in Sacramento in the early evening.

A Play on the Lake, A Ride to the Sky

Head to Lake Tahoe for a fun overnighter featuring the 1960’s musical, Beehive. An exuberant jukebox celebration of women musicians from the 60’s; Beehive transports audiences on a nostalgic musical journey. The outdoor venue at Sand Harbor is perfect for a summer night of music, laughter, and of course Aqua Net-glistening coiffures! Join your fellow Sports Leisure travelers for a late morning trip to Truckee. Check into the Hampton Inn, don your best 60’s apparel (optional) before dinner at Moody’s before enjoying the show. Imagine, this venue has one of the most stunning backdrops in the world, a Lake Tahoe sunset!
After breakfast at the hotel; depart for Olympic Valley. Squaw Valley is one of the largest ski areas in the United States, and was host site of the entire 1960 Winter Olympics. A tram ride to the summit provides an aerial view of the valley, plus takes you to High Camp for lunch. Visit the Olympic Museum before returning to Sacramento, mid-afternoon.
