Port Highlights:

Sometimes referred to as “America’s Finest City,” San Diego is home to lovely beaches and parks, a large naval fleet, including the USS Midway, numerous microbreweries, and enormous Balboa Park, the site of the famous San Diego Zoo. This favorite travel destination is full of things to do on or off the water. Brave souls can take a ride on the Giant Dipper of Belmont Park, a historic wooden roller coaster on the coastal boardwalk, or spend some time at Legoland and Knott’s Soak City. Fantastic shopping and sightseeing can be found at Old Town or Seaport Village and kayaking and surfing opportunities are everywhere.

With the Santa Ynez Mountains as its dramatic backdrop, Santa Barbara’s Mediterranean-style white building with red tile roofs gracefully reflect the Spanish heritage of the area. A premier resort town, Santa Barbara offers beautiful beaches and the world famous Stearns Wharf. Upon the hill sits Mission Santa Barbara, founded in 1786, once home to Franciscan friars. The Santa Ynez Valley entices with vineyards.

Considered one of California’s most beautiful coastal cities, Monterey was the setting for several John Steinbeck novels including Cannery Row and Tortilla Flat. Cannery Row, the one-time sardine-packing center is now a delightful strip of restaurants, bars, and gift shops. Equally as interesting is Alvarado Street, the main street of Monterey, also full of excellent restaurants, bars, and unique stores. Monterey also boasts the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium with its thousands of marine plants and animals on display in both underwater and interactive exhibits.

Hilly, foggy San Francisco is a bastion of food and culture. Iconic sights of San Francisco include the Golden Gate Bridge, the Transamerica Pyramid, Fisherman’s Wharf, and Alcatraz. A cable car ride is a must-do past elegant Victorian houses, exhilarating views from Russian and Nob Hills, and amazing panoramas found at Coit Tower and Twin Peaks. Then find the chaos of Chinatown and the dizzy drive down Lombard Street, sample the sourdough bread, fresh crab, and shrimp together with crisp California wines.

Sitting at the confluence of the Columbia and Willamette rivers, and watched over by Mount Hood, Portland is known for its eco-friendliness, bicycle paths, versatile transportation options, bridges, parks, eclectic neighborhoods, hipster vibes, and craft microbreweries. There is a variety of things to do for all types of interests including Washington Park with a formal Japanese Garden and zoo, the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, the Hollywood District and the Pearl District, and inviting coffeehouses everywhere.

As the 4th busiest port in the United States, evergreen Seattle is surrounded by mountains, forests, and water. Home to Microsoft, Starbuck’s, and Amazon, Seattle’s most recognizable icon is the Space Needle. Northwest cuisine with Asian infusion includes apples, salmon, Dungeness crab, razor clams paired with fresh microbrews, and Washington wines. Among the sights to see are Pike Place Market, Chihuly Gardens, Boeing Museum of Flight, Pioneer Square, and the Ballard Locks.

The capital of British Columbia majestically sits on the southern end of Vancouver Island. Its colonial past is still displayed in the Victorian architecture found in the stately Craigdarroch Castle mansion, the Empress Hotel, and along the Inner Harbour.

The popular 55-acre Butchart Gardens features vibrant floral displays, statuary, a carousel, and lovely water features.

Vancouver’s location at the mouth of the Fraser River and on the waterways of the Strait of Georgia, Howe Sound, Burrard Inlet, and all their tributaries makes this busy seaport an easy place for meeting. It is one of Canada’s most populated, most ethnically diverse cities and is also a popular filming location. Visit the interesting neighborhoods of Gastown, Granville Island, and Chinatown. Walk across the Capilano Suspension Bridge and stroll through Stanley Park. See the Vancouver Art Gallery and the Museum of Anthropology. There is an amazing variety of things to see and do here.
