  • Day 1

    Take a morning flight to Washington’s Reagan National Airport. From this in-town airport, it’s only a short drive to your hotel – a welcomed relief after a long day of travel! Hilton Hotel Arlington – 5 nights

  • Day 2

    Embark on a comprehensive city tour with our local guide extraordinaire, Sandra
    Sheksin. She will spin tales of Washington’s dynamic past and present while orienting you to the Mall (important for later in the itinerary when you have free time for Smithsonian and National Museums). You’ll see countless National Monuments, impressive governmental buildings both historic and modern (your tax dollars at work!), and the expansive parks and public spaces that make Washington, DC the striking city it is. (FB,L)

  • Day 3

    Begin your exploration of the Smithsonian Institution and National Museums today with a full day on the Mall. Your coach will operate “shuttle style” to facilitate easy movement and breaks. “D.C. After Dark” features selected beautifully illuminated monuments and the Kennedy Center after dinner. (FB,D)

  • Day 4

    A morning visit to Arlington National Cemetery includes a narrated tram tour with stops at the Tomb of the Unknowns for the Changing of the Guard ceremony and the home of General & Mrs. Robert E. Lee—no, that’s not a mausoleum on the hill! In the afternoon, take a ride into the country to visit the estate of George and Martha Washington, Mount Vernon. Tonight, dinner at Filomena Ristorante in Georgetown is a Sports Leisure favorite and sure to please. (FB,D)

  • Day 5

    Memorial Day offers a host of opportunities along our National Mall. Start the day with a visit to Ford’s Theatre and the Petersen House to relive President Lincoln’s final day. A new museum and interpretative center offer insight into this turbulent time in American history. From there your choices begin. Take your place along Constitution Avenue for the National Memorial Day Parade or use the time to continue your exploration of the Smithsonian Institution and National Museums. (FB,D)

  • Day 6

    A guided tour of the United States Capitol brings your vacation to a monumental end. Depart Washington National Airport in the early afternoon via Houston. (FB)


16th Annual Christmas Mystery Tour

One of our most popular trips is back for another year! But here’s the deal: You have to sign up early, or you’ll be on the waitlist, hoping for a cancelation.

This year’s trip visits a destination we have only been to twice in our 37+ year history, but it’s a very special place, especially during the holiday season, when entertainment is king. Chris & Mark will return as your co hosts, which pretty much guarantees you’ll be rollin’ in the aisles. So here are the clues…

Oh. What an interesting place. Who knew? So where should we go for Christmas? Greece? Mexico? To the train station? Maybe the old market has some great holiday gifts? It snows here. A little or a lot you ask? Sorry, that would be giving away too much. They do have a lot of poinsettias, look there’s a tree of them 20 feet high. The Mormons came here. So did the Germans. Probably came on the train I’m thinking. And no, we’ve already been to Salt Lake City. Scratch that one off your list. Las Vegas? Idaho? The Mormons went to those places too. Not sure about the Germans. Just don’t go off half-baked with all this information. There’s a lot at “steak” here. What a beautiful baseball stadium. Who plays there in the summer? Hmm, that’s unique.

Enough with the clues. The package includes your airfare, 11 meals and all the admissions to a wide variety of entertainment that is bound to leave you in the Christmas spirit for the rest of the season. Added bonus: One hotel for four nights, no packing and unpacking. Since many of the people who take this trip go every year, we strongly suggest registering as soon as possible.

A Coos Bay Christmas

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.
