On the Road with Julia!

Join us on a fun bus trip with old friends and NEW as we journey up to visit Hearst Castle, famously designed by our very own Julia Morgan, and help support our art education department at the same time! 

This FUNdraiser kicks off at 7 a.m. on Saturday, November 4, with muffins, fruit, and mimosas on the road up to Morro Bay!

We’ll stop in Arroyo Grande for lunch, and then continue on up to Morro Bay for some site-seeing and check-in to your rooms at the Inn at Morro Bay.

Dinner at the hotel will be at 7 p.m.

The rest of the evening is yours to enjoy, just be sure to get some breakfast before you load the bus leaving for Hearst Castle at 9 a.m.!

We should arrive at Hearst by 9:45 a.m. The tour begins by watching a short film, then you’ll take a walking tour of the castle. Then enjoy a truly behind-the-scenes, exclusive-for-us tour of Julia Morgan’s studio drawings with the renowned Victoria Kastner, Hearst Castle’s Decorative Arts Curator! We’ll be having lunch at Hearst and don’t worry, you’ll have time to hit the gift shop before heading back to Riverside (we’ll have dinner and wine on the bus back)!

This fantastic trip benefiting our art education programs is only $300/person. This includes the price of the bus, hotel room (double occupancy), breakfast, and the dinner/wine on the way back to Riverside.
