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.
