Trip to - Getty Villa & Malibu Short Hike

Tour of Getty Villa is free, but they do charge $15 for parking. So if you wanna split the cost, you can carpool with your friends.

PRINT OUT YOUR FREE TOUR PASS FROM THE GETTY VILLA WEBSITE for March16th, 1:30pm - http://www.getty.edu/visit/

I will carry some tour passes with me but they won't be enough for everybody.

Some people from other groups are also coming.

Getty Villa is a great place to visit even if you have been there before - used to go to Malibu side more often when I was at USC - time to do it again.

Also there are a bunch of hiking trails in the Malibu hills - we can do a short trail I know of but it has good views of the surrounding area & the ocean. At the end of the hike there is a place where we can have some snacks made from freshly caught local seafood. If there are any vegetarians, lemme know, I can arrange something else for you guys.

Recommend the following:
+ Eat something light before the hike
+ Bring water
+ A camera
+ A good appetite for our seafood break
+ A mind to be awed by the Getty Villa collection - this guy(J Paul Getty) used to live in style!
+ comfortable clothing, sunscreen, a hat etc.

Contact for carpool and/or just about anything -[masked]

http://www.getty.edu/visit/see_do/gardens.html

The hike will start @ 11am
Seafood break @ about 12:15am
The Getty Villa visit @ 1-30am

LA meetup location is -- The parking lot at the intersection of PCH & Sunset Blvd.

OC people willing to carpool - meetup point in Irvine(text me)

    Admission to the Getty Villa is free, but don't we need to have our ticket in advance for the certain time that we go? I recall a friend telling me that she had to order her tickets prior to going.

    March 13, 2013

    • Bir

      Good point. I have bunch of tickets printed out for people. But I think we may need more.

    Approximate drive time from Beverly Hills?

    March 12, 2013

    • Bir

      Hi Kristen, just to be sure & to see exact distance from your specific location - I would recommend to use the maps link on the event page with something like google maps.

      March 12, 2013

    • Kirsten W.

      Will do, was just being lazy, wondering if it was over an hour.

    Hi, for people looking to carpool - firstly, try your best to arrange a ride(maybe with another friend) & we'll try our best accommodate everyone based on how many people are coming from each area. Leave a comment with your general location if you're looking to carpool. Thanks.

  • Karishma G.

    Anyone from near Los Feliz willing to carpool?

    February 18, 2013

    • Karishma G.

      Also, I could meet you somewhere in Hollywood, so you don't have to come to Los Feliz to get me.

      February 18, 2013
