Come enjoy this fascinating tour that highlights the Rancho era of early California. A unique opportunity to travel into Camp Pendleton's interior for a guided tour of the Santa Margarita Ranch House, Bunkhouse Museum and Chapel – the oldest structure on the entire base. The 8,500 square-foot house, built in 1827, is a stunning visual example of early California architecture and over the years has been home to some of California's most famous families, including Pio Pico (who lost it in a horse bet!) and the families of 35 Marine Corps generals. Historic artifacts and exhibits include early ranch equipment, photographs of President Roosevelt's historic visit, antiques donated by Anthony Quinn during the filming of Guadalcanal Diary and furnishings of the Rancho period. A docent-led tour of the Leo Carrillo ranch house in Carlsbad will tell the story of Leo Carrillo, actor and conservationist who created this at the height of his acting career for nostalgia’s sake! Containing 18 of the original buildings including the house, barn, stables and work sheds, the Park is a serene place and was featured by Huell Howser on an episode of California’s Golden Parks. Today enjoy an included taco lunch with dessert at an award-winning restaurant in Carlsbad serving authentic mouth-watering San Diego-style Mexican cuisine. Their handmade tortillas, fresh salsas and colorful crispy chips made daily in the kitchen, as well as the famous jalapeno white sauce will make this a memorable meal. Required: closed-toe walking shoes (some walking on the tour) and bring valid government-issued photo identification on the day of tour.
