What is Sunnylands?

Sunnylands is the 200-acre estate in Rancho Mirage, California that was the West Coast home of Ambassador and Mrs. Walter H. Annenberg. Completed in 1966, Sunnylands was designed by architect A. Quincy Jones with interiors by William Haines and Ted Graber.

Today it is A West Coast "Camp David," where global leaders seek to advance international agreement.

You can take a tour the Historic House but you have to buy tickets well in advance. The Gardens and Museum are all free.

 The 25,000-square-foot midcentury modern house is located on landscaped grounds that include a private golf course, tennis court, swimming pool, and 11 fishing lakes. The Annenbergs welcomed to Sunnylands seven United States presidents, British royalty, international political figures, and cultural and entertainment legends.
