This was an easy trip to name, because as the itinerary came together, there was this wonderful canvas of important historical figures; people who in some cases we have overlooked in our studies and our travels. People who did significant things in these United States.
You’ll marvel at an engineering feat that was ahead of its time, and see so many great attractions and have so much fun, you’ll probably think to yourself, “It’s a Wonderful Life!” Ladies who like history will find this trip of particular interest, as will those who enjoy ice cream. Look here, don’t point your finger that direction: If you want to find what you are looking for, point west towards the lakes, because “that must be the place.”
Many years ago, people came to one of our destinations to discover something about themselves. Wonder how they feel about that adventure now? Oh, and “Please remember not to put anything in the water that could kill the fish,” in the words of the late explorer Henry Hudson. By the way, is that a river or a ledge? Or maybe it’s both.
OK, we’ve practically given it away with all of those obvious clues. Now all that’s left is for you to call and sign up. Mark will be your Tour Director as you head into the wilderness.

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.
