Hey we were coming to California for semester break and a gal in our Historic Folklore of America II class saw this on Trip Advisor and printed out the reviews for the class, so we decided to include it in our sunshine getaway (it's cold in Oklahoma in the winter). So after the Rose Bowl (Go Sooners!!) we headed up - great drive up coast, and Nitt Witt topped it off. This guy Art Beale (and nobody knows him like our tour guide Mike) was a historical gem himself - the things he did, in life, and in this mansion, are amazing - we (college freshmen/women) loved it, my parents, AND my grandparents loved it, but the capper is, my 2 sisters (5 and 9) loved it, and my 15 year old teenage brother (who doesn't like anything "older" people like) said it was 'phat' and 'way cool', and that he loved it, too!! - he even grinned a lot while we were there - Prof Rhinehart showed the California Gold video we brought back to the class and he's already put it on the list for academic credit tours!! - and yes, we got credit for it, this year, too. There'll be a bunch of us back either at spring break or next Rose Bowl. (Sooners will be there) maybe we'll bring the winning team up, too!!
