Experience Santa Monica and Malibu Your Way
Malibu Tour Barbra Streisand's Estate (Wednesdays only, 2 weeks advanced reservation required)
Ms. Streisand's $12 million estate consists of 22 1/2 lushly-landscaped acres accented with sycamore, oak, walnut and pine trees, picturesque bridges and gardens, and a stream flowing through the property. Barbra abandoned the estate following a particularly rough season of fires and floods in Malibu (the compound was on the market for five years before she opted to donate it to the Conservancy.) But the bad weather wasn't enough to keep her away from the area - she recently bought another home in Malibu. The 90-minute tour of the estate and tea on the patio costs a $30 per person (not included in the price of the tour). But even at that price, there is still a waiting list of people to take the tour. The tour consists of an hour and a half docent-led walk through the Barn, the Peach House, the Art Deco House and the grounds, followed by "a leisurely tea with scones and shortbread" on the patio of "The Barn."
Malibu Lake Shrine Temple (all other days, when Barbra Streisand's Estate is not available)
Get one step closer to self-realization surrounded by flowers, trees, ducks, swans and koi at this sanctuary. The Lake Shrine was dedicated by Parmahansa Yogananda in 1950, but one need not be a swami to visit this sanctuary, anyone can partake of the peaceful sights and sounds. The ten-acre site include gardens, a natural lake (complete with swans, ducks and koi), a Court of Religions (honoring Hinduism, Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism and Islam), the Mahatma Gandhi World Peace Memorial (which contains a portion of Gandhi's ashes), a museum and gift shop. The Lake Shrine also offers meditation classes and workshops, and can be booked for weddings and baptisms.
The colorful city of Santa Monica is sandwiched between Venice and Malibu along the beautiful coastline of the Pacific Ocean. This lively California destination features over 65 museums and galleries and has been called the city of murals, as they can be found everywhere. The three major shopping destinations in Santa Monica are centered around Main Street, Montana Avenue and Third Street Promenade, which features Santa Monica Place. All are best explored on foot and lined with eclectic stores and specialty shops, sidewalk cafes and upbeat entertainers performing a musical act or magic show. Topiary dinosaur fountains, multi-screen movie theatres, upscale boutiques, free-standing pavilions and trendy sidewalk cafés have transformed a once dreary district into a popular pedestrian promenade. The Santa Monica Pier contains Pacific Park, a family amusement park with a large ferris wheel. It also has a carousel from the 1920s, an aquarium, shops, entertainers, an arcade, a pub, and restaurants. The Santa Monica Pier is a must-see destination in Southern California.
