Las Vegas, Hollywood & Santa Barbara (4 days, 3 nights)
***Overview content below***
Celebrate Thanksgiving holiday weekend in two of America’s most quintessential cities—Las Vegas and Los Angeles! Depart early on Thanksgiving morning for glamorous Las Vegas, a city of lights, nightlife and mega hotels. Upon arrival, you’ll sit down to a traditional Thanksgiving dinner at your hotel, complete with turkey, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce. After dinner, see the lights of Fremont Street on a short night tour and then relax in style at Las Vegas’ top-rated hotel, the Platinum.
Spend the next day seeing the sights of Las Vegas—from the pyramid of the Luxor, to the indoor canals and gondolas of the Venetian—or visit the Grand Canyon on a day tour. Your tour guide will lead you on a night tour that evening to see the spectacular shows that the Las Vegas hotels put on—see the Bellagio fountain show, a volcanic eruption at the Mirage and a choreographed pirate battle at Treasure Island.
On your third day, depart Las Vegas for Los Angeles. You’ll have a choice to spend the afternoon in Disneyland or to visit Los Angeles’ famous beaches, Santa Monica and Venice. On your final day, see the stars with a tour of Hollywood, including the Walk of Fame and the famous Grauman’s Chinese Theater. Then see one of California’s classic beach towns, Santa Barbara, and spend the afternoon at the beach or shopping on State Street. You’ll arrive that evening back in San Francisco with great stories and happy memories of an American holiday spent in two classic American cities.
