The Presidential Touch in Simi Valley

From Los Angeles, it’s a fairly short and beautiful drive north to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley. Not only is the library really interesting to tour, planners can treat attendees to a beautiful mountain setting by hosting gatherings in the Air Force One Pavilion, the front entrance courtyard, White House Rose Garden, and the Ruwe Terrace and West Lawn, which connect and feature a large piece of the Berlin Wall. The enclosed Air Force One Pavilion is especially impressive as it was built around the retired Air Force One airplane that Ronald Reagan used as president.

Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole welcomed Emma Matilda, a 16-weekold Bernese mountain dog last May. She has been melting the hearts of guests, groups and staff ever since. Tillie is named after the wife of William O. Owen who was the first, along with three other climbers, to ascend to the summit of Grand Teton in 1898.
