International Place organizes both day trips and overnight trips to various destinations in the region. The costs for these trips are always modest, and depend on the type of transportation and other arrangements made by I-Place. Students must sign up in advance for these trips, so that I-Place can plan adequate transportation and accommodation. These trips are chances for students to get away from campus and explore California beyond Claremont.

Day trips

Our day trips are to destinations within the Los Angeles area. Past destinations include: the city of Los Angeles, Disneyland, Magic Mountain, Newport Beach, the Getty Center, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the La Brea Tar Pits, the Los Angeles County Fair, Santa Barbara, and Catalina Island.

Overnight trips

Our overnight trips are to popular destinations in the region during breaks in the academic year. Past destinations include: San Diego, San Francisco, Yosemite National Park, Joshua Tree National Park, and Grand Canyon National Park.
