7nts from: $2195 quad/ $2295 triple/$2595 double/$3595 single
It’s football Saturday at Husky Stadium nestled high above Union Bay on Lake Washington. Its trademark cantilever metal roof structure traps in sound, making the venue known for being one of the loudest stadiums in the nation. It is described as the “Greatest Setting in College Football”.
Our Pacific Northwest Adventure Tour begins in Portland, Oregon’s largest city. Whether you call it PDX, P-town, Stumptown, the City of Roses, Bridge City, or simply Portland, enjoy 2 nights and a complete free day in this vibrant city known for its eccentric locals, its dynamic downtown—resplendent with microbreweries, coffee shops, brunch spots, and book stores—and sweeping natural scenery that surrounds it, like the sparkling Willamette River and majestic Mount Hood.
Our tour complete with a local tour director begins with a visit to Mount St. Helens. 57 people perished when it erupted on May 18, 1980, in an explosion bigger than 1500 atomic bombs. The cataclysm began with an earthquake that sparked the biggest landslide in recorded history and buried 230 sq. miles of forest under millions of tons of volcanic rock and ash.
Our visit here today demonstrates how, over three decades on, nature has restored much life to the mountain, although the devastation wreaked by the explosion is still hauntingly evident.
From here, off to Olympia, Washington State’s iconic state capital. Enjoy the evening exploring its downtown and beautiful setting on the Puget Sound.
Our 2nd day includes Snoqualmie Falls, one of Washington state’s most popular scenic attractions, then onto Leavenworth, the “Bavarian Village” in the Cascade Mountains. We continue to Deception Falls where you’ll have a chance to walk an easy trail in this gorgeous forest to enjoy breathtaking views of the fall. Along the drive enjoy the beauty of Stevens Pass, a mountain pass through the Cascade Mountains.
Once in Seattle, a quick photo stop at the Fremont Troll, a big, fearsome, car-crushing bruiser who took up residence under the north end of the Aurora bridge on Halloween 1990.
Our hale for this football weekender is at the Motif Seattle, the perfect spot for exploring downtown Seattle. Located on Fifth Avenue, you are just a short walk from Pikes Market and steps from great shopping and restaurants.
It’s a fun filled weekend you won’t want to miss. If you love sports, we have it all beginning with a Mariners baseball game on Friday night as they take on the Chicago White Sox in our private venue, the Hit it Here Terrace, along right field with outdoor terrace seating, food and beverages. Plus, its fireworks night here at Safeco Field!
Football Saturday begins with a pre-game UH Tailgate Party on the stadium grounds and then sit back among the 70,000 plus fans as we rally on our beloved Rainbow Warriors to victory.
Sunday, a complete free day to get out and explore on your own or maybe, just maybe the Seahawks are in town and you can make it a “hat trick” weekend.
