Sunnylands: Where Power, History, And Beauty Meet

Imagine a place where world leaders gather to promote global peace, surrounded by serene gardens and luxurious amenities. That place exists, and it’s called Sunnylands.

Sunnylands is a breathtaking 200-acre estate in Rancho Mirage, California, rich in history and significance. For over 40 years, it has played host to some of the world’s most influential political, business, educational, and entertainment leaders.

The estate was originally purchased by Walter and Leonore Annenberg in 1963. Then, it was designed by architect A. Quincy Jones and interior designer William Haines and served as the Annerberg’s winter retreat for over four decades.

In 2001, the Annenbergs established The Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands with a mission to preserve the estate and promote world peace through international dialogue. In fact, Rancho Mirage City pronounced Sunnylands a historic site in 1990, recognizing its rich cultural significance and enduring legacy.

Today, Sunnylands remains a beacon of hospitality and tranquility, welcoming visitors from all corners of the globe to explore its stunning grounds and historic residence.

Since opening its doors to the public in 2012, Sunnylands has welcomed over half a million visitors from all over the world. And we’re inviting you to explore her as well!
