Huell Howser Tribute
*This trip has been canceled.

We’ll start our day off with a stop in Old Towne Orange for lunch and antique shopping and browsing on your own. Next, we’ll stop around corner at Chapman University. Enjoy the newly open Huell Howser exhibit. The joy that the late TV legend Huell Howser shared with generations of Californians infuses a new permanent exhibit, sponsored by the Automobile Club of Southern California. Housed in the Chapman University’s Leatherby Library, the exhibit includes images, text and artifacts, which outline Howser’s career and legacy in California along with an archive of all of the episodes of his Calfornia’s Gold TV show. A donation will be made on behalf of your group tour to the Huell Howser California’s Gold Scholarship Endowment which is awarded to students who demonstrate a positive outlook and are actively pursuing ways to improve society as altruistic change agents.
