Town & Gown Spring Day Tour
The Queen Mary
Long Beach, CA
Thursday, April 23, 2015
9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Transport yourself back in time aboard the legendary Queen Mary, once the grandest ocean liner in the world. From her construction in 1930 in Clydebank, Scotland to her maiden voyage on May 27, 1936 from Southampton, England, she set a new benchmark in transatlantic travel. She captured the hearts and imaginations of all on both sides of the Atlantic representing an era known for its elegance, class and style.
On arrival we will have a private one hour docent led tour “The Glory Days” – interesting anecdotes, fun facts and true stories about the legendary ship including her service during WWII. We will also have a 30 minute “Ghosts and Legends” tour as to why the Queen Mary is known as the haunted ship.
Following these two tours, lunch will be held in the Promenade Café with these choices: Hamburger, chicken or club sandwich, chicken Caesar salad or veggie wrap. After lunch, several choices are offered: Self-guided Audio Tour, the Bob Hope Exhibit, or the Russian Submarine. As we travel home, we will serve you a tasty dessert. Due to the historic nature of the vessel, not all areas are accessible by guests with mobility issues.
The tour departs promptly at 9 a.m. and returns by 4 p.m. Meet at the First Christian Church parking lot located at 1130 E. Walnut, Orange, CA 92867.$90 per person, includes transportation, lunch, admission and all tips.
