Curt will show us how Los Angeles has transformed from a tiny pueblo into a sprawling metropolis that is still developing at an incredible pace. Between its most historic buildings is a progressing cultural renaissance and building boom – in fact, it is the largest in over a century and has to be seen to be believed! We will be making photo stops along the way except for today’s highlight, SoFi Stadium, where we will get a behind the scenes tour! You will not believe your eyes when we see the fabulous new home to the NFL’s Rams and Chargers. Built at a cost of $5.5 billion, it is the most expensive stadium ever built in the world. During our guided, behind-the-scenes tour of this magnificent NFL stadium, you’ll experience what it’s like to be a VIP fan, broadcaster, player and more – on and off the field. Following our tour, you’ll have time to explore the official team shop offering stadium-exclusive merchandise and gear. This afternoon, we will also see the latest developments in the some of the iconic stadiums & Arenas in LA. You will have the opportunity to enjoy lunch on your own at Philippe the Original – an L.A. icon that is known as the inventor of the French dip sandwich.
