The Ronald Reagan Library


Hi everyone, 
Oh, the PLACES I've been. While Sweetheart and I were on our Fall vacation to visit our Son and Granddaughters in Pasadena, we visited the Reagan Library. 
 President Reagan's dream was that one day Air Force One would be shared with the American people. That dream has finally come true. 
We walked through the Air Force One that served seven U.S. presidents and flew over one million miles during its 28 years of service. View each cabin, detailed as it was during President Reagan's administration, and get a behind-the-scenes look into America's Flying White House.
While criss-crossing the United States and flying to twenty-six nations in Europe, Asia, and the Americas during eight years in the White House, Ronald Reagan logged an impressive number of air miles as he met with world leaders and dignitaries using what he called face-to-face diplomacy. 
We had visited the Reagan Library a few years ago while they were building the Pavilion
I took this photo of my granddaughters with the President and Mrs. Reagan. 
Now they can say "We stood next to President and Mrs. Reagan." LOL!
Perched on a mountaintop with sweeping views of the surrounding mountains, valleys and the Pacific Ocean, the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library is one of California's most beautiful and unique destinations.

The Library's 300 acre site, just 45 minutes from downtown Los Angeles, represents the "shining city on a hill" often referenced by President Reagan and appropriately serves as the final resting place of the nation's 40th President. 
What a wonderful visit and beautiful view.

  1. Glad you all enjoyed it! My friend's son goes to college down that way and on a recent visit to see him they went to the Reagan library--and LOVED it! Her son is a huge Reagan fan and was thrilled. She couldn't say enough great things about it. They loved it so much they bought a membership--her son plans to go often. The grounds look just beautiful!

  3. I know this was interesting. My daughter and SIL went to the Rose Bowl and wanted to tour the Reagan Library but ran out of time. Glad you enjoyed your tour and for sharing. My husband is an aviator and would love to see inside Air Force One.
