Natural side of Canada
If you know anything about Ramona, then you know she loves the natural side of Canada. Okay, that is your first clue. Keeping in mind that she is the planner for this tour, you can expect to find a few trees, some wildlife and perhaps a lake or two. This trip does have a few shopping opportunities… one might say the fruits of birds, bees and trees. You may just want to bring an extra suitcase for all the goodies you purchase along the way. Transportation may be interesting; is that a floating bridge we just paddled past? Or do we ride a steam train? What do you mean I have to walk up that hill to lunch? Gray-cloaked monks once lived in this mission; I am not so sure. First Nation’s culture, locally sourced foods, and Canadian “wildlife” are the highlights of this journey through the valley.
Featuring Tioga Pass and Bodie State Historical Park
Featuring covered, reserved seating for the Grand Floral Parade
First offered as a holiday excursion in 2013, it has been often requested by our Christmas crowd ever since, so we are pleased to bring A Coos Bay Christmas back for a return engagement.
This is an all-coach trip. Travel north to Ashland/Medford the first day. There’s a lunch break in Redding and tonight you’ll partake in the annual Christmas Feast at the Winchester Inn. The six-course meal comes with carolers and costumed staff.
The next morning (Christmas Eve), before departing for the coast, make an early morning visit to Harry & David’s. As is our Christmas shopping tradition, we have negotiated a little gift card to get you started on your expedition. Travel to the coast, stopping in Bandon at Washed Ashore, a most unique place that makes art out of ocean trash. At Cranberry Sweets, your sponsored-shopping activities continue. Finish the day at The Mill Casino/Hotel in Coos Bay. Dinner tonight is a Crab Fest (other options available), as the Dungeness season will have just started.
Christmas Day brings our legendary White Elephant Gift Exchange, an ecological tour of the area and a visit to Shore Acres State Park. Not only is there an interesting story, there is a wonderful display of Christmas lights. A holiday feast is planned.
The trip home takes you down the Oregon Coast, with shopping stops at Misty Meadows Jams and the House of Myrtlewood. Spend the night in Eureka and head home through the redwoods.
