The Pacific Northwest
Weird Wonderful Portland, Washington State Wine Trails, and the birthplace of Starbucks - this region of the US is equal parts funky urban adventure and lush national parks and waterways. It's also an amazing gateway to Canada's Vancouver Island and British Columbian capital.
From Voodoo Doughnuts to Craft Breweries the "weird and wonderful" Portland is a hip urban adventure with a used book scene and a Volcano. But its not all booze and books - with beautiful rose gardens and lush forests in the middle of the city, the nature here is as good and the quirky local eats. And if Farm to Table eating and World Class Pinot Noir is your style we'll get you out into the Willamette Valley for a tastebud tour unique to the Pacific Northwest.
Seattle and Beyond
Not just the birthplace of Grunge, Starbucks, and Mid-Century architecture - Seattle also has flying fish, screaming seagulls and sculptures of glass. As the starting point for a Washington State road-trip, and a road system that counts the waters of Puget Sound as "highways" you're in for an amazing scenic adventure culminating with Olympic National Park and the stunning Mt. Olympus.
Whether you take a ferry to Vancouver Island or cross the border through Peace Arch, why not continue into Canada - where world class museums, First Nations culture and Poutine join forces to take your Pacific Northwest to an International level! Seaside parks, suspension bridges and late summer sun make this trip a great idea for July!
