The history of Sunnylands is quite interesting. Their website states the mission as the following: "To address important issues facing the nation and the world and to serve as a sanctuary for high-level national and world leaders seeking the privacy needed for solving the most pressing issues of the day." It is such a lovely sentiment and is definitely in keeping with the Annenberg life philosophy.
It's incredibly impressive from the moment you turn onto the large driveway that is lined with these gorgeous trees, at the moment, in full bloom with these gorgeous golden flowers. The visitor center reflects the modernist style of architecture that is so prevalent in Palm Springs. The glassed wall that greets you as you enter the visitor center that overlooks the great lawn reveals an absolutely breathtaking view.
