About this trip

 

***Update March 2021: We continue to receive positive news from the Rose Parade Committee and the great number of venues and restaurants we will be working with on your Rose Parade trip. The committee is confident that yes, there will be a parade! There is still time to add YOUR reservation to our Friends and Family trip!


In December, before and during the trip Zoom call the bands hosted, we announced a small price increase of $15.00 per family member to cover the price increases PAC was aware of year-over-year in rescheduling the trip. Those students signing-up after December 8, 2021 realized the slight increase. The majority of those registering before that date have not. The $30.00 adjustment will be added to your accounts prior to your July 1 payment, just so you know.

Itinerary

Monday, December 27
Travel to Southern Californa

 Monday, December 27: Depart for California on your choice of airlines from either Nashville or Memphis (airfare on your own). You can book on a variety of travel sites such as Southwest.com, Travelocity, Kayak, or similar.


Welcome to Southern California! 


Share a ride with other “friends and family” or rent a car and check into the beautiful Newport Beach Marriott Bayview Hotel (or similar).


PAC recommends you rent a car for this trip so you can enjoy meals out and about somewhere other than your hotel. Uber fares from LAX to the hotel run $50-$60 each way which way pay the lion's share of your rental car bill, especially if you share a car with another family!


The closest airport to Newport Beach is John Wayne Airport (but usually the most expensive). You can also fly to LAX, Burbank, or even Ontario but be mindful of the transportation distance (and cost) to the hotel! You MIGHT choose to rent a car for your stay!
