Welcome to the Dreams Unlimited Video Trivia Challenge
Hosted by Julie Martin

For the month of January 2007, we took you on a tour all around Southern California to show you some of the great destinations you can experience as part of a Disneyland Southern California Dream Package.

Each weekday in January, we released a short, 1-2 minute video featuring a different location around Southern California. Each video also featured that day’s trivia question.

Debbie Wirkiowski is the winner of the trivia challenge and won a 5-night Southern California Dream Package, courtesy of Dreams Unlimited Travel.


January 1, 2007 - Venice Beach
Today, we feature beautiful Venice Beach, CA. Located about 40 miles from the Disneyland resort, Venice Beach offers a unique look into California's more artistic side. The winding paths that hug the coast line are full of interesting shops, plenty of street performers doing everything from juggling to snake charming, and lots of people jogging and bike riding. As with just about any beach in California, there's plenty of volleyball and surfing. And, if you want to work out with the big boys, there's an outdoor gym at Muscle Beach.

January 2, 2007 - Santa Monica
We continue our tour of Southern California from the Santa Monica Pier. Also known as “the finish line” for the famed Route 66, this landmark has been used in a number of films and television shows over the years. The pier was built in 1909, and since then it has been a destination for tourists and locals alike. The Hippodrome Carousel featured in today’s trivia challenge was also responsible for saving the Santa Monica pier from destruction in 1973. By having the Hippodrome and it’s carousel certified as National Historic Landmarks, the residents of Santa Monica successfully prevented the city from tearing it down.
