Day Trip to Riverside & The OC: Spectacular Christmas Exhibit at Nixon Library

  • Dec 9, 2012 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please Note: This is part of a series of events I am hosting the same day. The events are a la carte, meaning you dont need to attend the other events to attend this one. I am hosting this event for both Gay Foodies and Pleasure Palate. Call/text me when you arrive at the venue:[masked]-4099.

Admission to the museum is $12 per person.

This event was suggested by PP member Jas.

I have hosted two prior visits to the Richard Nixon Presidential Library. While he deserved to notorious legacy because of the Watergate Scandal, there's more to his legacy like his helping open up China and putting an end to the Vietnam War. When I go to presidential libraris, I check my political affiliations at the door and try to see things from a historical perspective.

You can easily spend a couple of hours here seeing everything they have to offer, and they have a nice garden and pool that is reminiscent of the one at the Getty Villa in Malibu because its designed by the same architect.

From their website:

Trees, Trains and Traditions will display dazzling Christmas trees, miniature trains and Christmas traditions and customs from around the world.

★ Thrill to 25 breathtaking trees decorated to reflect the spirit of the holidays from countries and cultures around the world — including China, Ireland, France, Germany, Russia, Japan, Korea, Scotland, Mexico, England, Sweden, Austria, Italy and Africa.

★ Specially themed trees include the Abraham Lincoln Tree, the Elvis Tree, Pat Nixon Centennial Tree and a tree made entirely of poinsettia flowers.

★ Five model railroad train engines representing Denver & Rio Grande Western Mogul, Colorado & Southern Mogul, Denver & Rio Grande Western Forney, 2-8-2 Mikado, and Thomas the Tank engine.

Situated on nine rolling acres in Yorba Linda, California, the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace offers visitors an insider’s glimpse into the events, people and world that shaped, and were shaped by, the 37th President.
