West Coast Tours
The mystique of the West Coast beckons, where a magical expanse of ever-changing landscape flanks the mighty Pacific Ocean. Photographers dream of the Monterey Peninsula’s mist-drifted 17-Mile Drive, the majestic Yosemite Valley, the bleak beauty of Death Valley, the collapsed volcanic peak of Mount Saint Helens, and the mossy, dripping rainforest of Olympic National Park. It’s a region rich in superlatives.
Culinary superlatives also abound on West Coast tour packages. Taste how ambitious vintners transformed California’s Napa and Sonoma Valleys and Oregon’s Willamette Valley into world-class wine destinations, see flourishing fields, vineyards, and orchards, and sample coffee with the experts at the Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Seattle.
Seattle is the jewel of the northwest, perched on water’s edge and punctuated with lakes and hills: an Emerald City watched over by the iconic 1961 Space Needle. Shop handcrafts and artisanal eats at the famous Pike Place Market. Cross Puget Sound by ferry to explore Olympic National Park, an International Biosphere Reserve where jagged peaks descend to temperate rainforest bordered by wild, windswept beaches.
Explore quirky Astoria at the mouth of the Columbia River, the oldest American settlement west of the Rocky Mountains, then head inland to Portland, the capital of cuisine, for a food tour. Roam the dramatic Columbia River Gorge, where Lewis and Clark led their party by boat to the Pacific Ocean in 1805. Feel the chilly mist of waterfalls cascading from the basalt cliffs, and admire the hand-hewn elegance of Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood.
Winding from vibrant San Francisco, to glamorous Hollywood and Beverly Hills in Los Angeles, to the bright lights of Las Vegas, our West Coast tours invite you to drink in the urban buzz, then immerse you in nature. You’ll never forget Lake Tahoe, Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, and the monumental trees of Sequoia National Park.
