A direct flight to Portland this morning means an early afternoon arrival in Ocean Shores. Take this time at the ocean to walk along the sandy beach or enjoy the sunset from your hotel balcony. Shilo Inn (L)
Leaving the shore, travel north to the temperate rainforest. Home to giant trees, thousands of ferns, and creatures of every size and color, the environment is beautiful. Relax on the shores of Lake Quinault or take a walk through nearby maple groves. A game of croquet on the lawn or canoeing on the lake are also options! Lake Quinault Lodge (L,D)
The Hoh Rainforest is one of the most prime examples of diversity in the world. Take a walk through screens of moss, twisted ancient trees, and giant ferns. Who knows? You may even meet an elk along the way! Spend this evening watching the ferries ply the strait or walking along the shoreline in Port Angeles. Red Lion Inn (FB,L)
Complete the route around the peninsula stopping in Poulsbo for a tasty treat. As the afternoon comes to a close, ride the Bainbridge ferry across Puget Sound for one of the most spectacular views of Seattle. Return home in the early evening. (B)
Featuring Tioga Pass and Bodie State Historical Park
Each spring the baseball fans in our midst make a pilgrimage to Arizona, where the “Boys of Summer” get ready for the season. We’ll catch a game every afternoon or evening, a total of 5 games in all. Generally, the Giants are the first priority and the A’s second. The schedules for the Cactus League in Spring Training are not finalized and announced until sometime in November/December, and those registered will be sent the schedule just as soon as it is finalized.
Each departure features Sunday Brunch at the Wrigley Mansion, and a dinner at Rustler’s Roost (a Sports Leisure tradition). The centrally located Marriott Hotel we call home provides a great buffet breakfast each morning. Tickets for the games are almost always located in the shade. You’ll see how important this tiny feature is once we get to Arizona and you see thousands of people unwilling to take their seats for the game because they are in the sun!
By registering early, you secure your space, guarantee your tickets and save a few dollars. We only purchase a few tickets over the number of people reserved when they become available, so those who wait risk getting shut out. Plus, this tour has sold out the last two years (hence the second departure this season). This is a “bucket list” item for many, and lots of fans repeat this trip on a regular basis. See you in Arizona!
Featuring covered, reserved seating for the Grand Floral Parade
