- Tuesday, 11/3/2015
You begin your day at the
, a service organization for blind and visually impaired adults. On the tour led by visually impaired guides, you’ll see students attending classes and learning to live with their impairment. There’s also the library where you’ll have a chance to learn the basics of Braille and see how brailling is actually done when you visit the publishing department. At the conclusion of the tour, you’ll bid our friends at the Institute farewell and head over to
Universal CityWalk’s Saddle Ranch Chop House for a buffet lunch.
The setting at Saddle Ranch is a western ranch-style home combined with the feel of an Aspen ski lodge. As a special treat, for dessert you’ll get to toast marshmallows and make your own s’mores! You’ll spend the remainder of the afternoon visiting
Guide Dogs of America.
For more than 50 years, Guide Dogs of America has bred, raised and trained some of the world’s most dedicated dogs and matched them with blind people of all ages. On your tour of the 7-acre campus, you’ll learn how the loving, working partnership of dog and human develops. Donations to both the Braille Institute and Guide Dogs of America are included on your behalf.
