Fountains, back in the day, were a point of LA pride.  They are diverse, artistic, beautiful to look at and historically important.  We’ll see a floating teapot, a 9/11 memorial, an American youth rising above the waves, spitting swans, among many others. We’ll lunch on our own at The Americana at Brand in Glendale.  Then we’ll partake in everyone’s favorite, a root beer float, at the famous Fair Oaks Pharmacy, with its oak doors, embossed glass, marble counters, tin ceilings & honeycomb tile floors, a real throwback in architecture & design

Every now and then we need to be surprised! Sometimes it’s fun not to know where we’re going and what we’re going to see.  Just sit back and relax as we head either east, west, north or south.  Use your best deduction skills and try to guess our destination as we roll along.  Our stops will only be revealed as we approach them. Lunch is also a mystery and included on the tour. Walking level is easy, but wear close-toed walking shoes and bring a light sweater. 

***REMEMBER*** Call Helen to choose your reservation date before you send in your check.  Deadline September 6.
