Score! Tour ticket for Annenberg’s “Sunnylands”

It was a good thing I was paying attention and looking through Sunset magazine last night…

Beginning March 1st, Walter and Leonore Annenberg’s Sunnylands retreat in Rancho Mirage will be opened for public tours. It’s a masterpiece of Mid-century Modern architecture in a beautiful setting of parks and gardens–even its own 9-hole golf course. It is now both a retreat center for world-class events as well as a museum of art and visitor center for the Annenberg Foundation.

Tickets went on sale this morning at 9:00 AM, and I was ready with credit card in hand. I scored a ticket for 10:15 AM, Saturday  March 10th. The entire batch of available tour tickets for the first half of March sold out within 20 minutes…

I’m really excited and it should make a great day trip–I love going out to the desert. I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures (on the grounds and in the center only, none in the house itself unfortunately) and do a write-up.

Check out the Sunnylands website here for more info.
