Total Drive Distance: 135 miles (round trip)

Estimated total tour duration: 6 hours


The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library rests on a majestic hill overlooking the breath-taking topography of Southern California. The 100 acre campus, with picturesque views reaching out to the Pacific Ocean and lush gardens, pays tribute to one of our nation’s beloved leaders.


Our drive will take us on back roads past Lake Casitas and through the quaint towns of Ojai and Santa Paula. We’ll continue our drive over the foothills into Moorpark and take CA-23 South to the Presidential Drive leading to the Reagan Library.


When we arrive at the Presidential Library, we’ll enjoy a one hour docent led tour through the Library. It will include replicas of the oval office in the White House, the “flying White House” Air Force One which served seven Presidents, the Memorial site, and a host of other exhibits. The Pompeii Exhibit, which features over 150 authentic artifacts on loan from the Naples National Archeological Museum in Italy, will also be on display.


After the tour, we’ll enjoy a delicious buffet lunch in the Air Force One Pavilion. After lunch, you can spend more time on your own in the library or head directly back to Santa Barbara with the tour leader.  The return trip will be on the US-101 North where you’ll enjoy beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean and the Channel Islands as you drive between Ventura and Santa Barbara.
