The best reason to stay indoors

The once très exclusive Sunnylands Center & Gardens, former home of Walter and Leonore Annenberg, is now open to us 99 percenters for tours. But they don’t call it the Camp David of the West for nothing—between tours, world leaders fly in for desert-style diplomatic sessions. A shining example of California modernism, designed by A. Quincy Jones, the 25,000-square-foot one-bedroom house is chock-full of art (yes, that’s a Rodin) and personal photos, including an entire wall of the Queen Mother’s yearly personal Christmas cards to the Annenbergs. Nothing has been altered since Leonore died in 2009, which makes it easy to imagine what it was like to have a private golf course and entertain the Reagans, Prince Charles, and Frank Sinatra. $35; sunnylands.org
