Sightseeing Highlights

Seattle
Situated on the west coast of Washington State is Seattle, the Emerald City. Named after the Chief of the local Native American tribe in the mid 19th century, Seattle today is an eclectic mix of music, culture and food. A caffeine-fueled population of over 550,000 courtesy of Starbucks and Seattle’s Best Coffee, Seattle also has the highest per-capita music and dance attendance in the country, with 80 live music clubs (not counting the movable dance clubs and shows) and 15 symphony orchestras.

San Juan Island, WA
The San Juan Islands are an archipelago in Washington, in the northwest corner of the United States. Archaeologists use the term “Gulf of Georgia Culture Area” to refer to the San Juan and Gulf Islands. The San Juan Islands were part of the traditional area of various peoples of the Coast Salish ethnolinguistic group. Sadly, exploration and settlement by the Europeans brought smallpox to the area by the 1770s. The explorations of 1791 were carried out in partnership of Britain and the United States. Despite having colonized the area entirely, the British and Americans retained many of the Spanish names which survive today. The name “San Juan” was given to the islands by the Spanish explorer Francisco de Eliza, who charted the islands in 1791 as well. The majority of San Juan Islands are quite hilly with some flat areas and valleys, often quite fertile. Today, the beautiful San Juan Islands are an important tourist destination.

Friday Harbor, WA
Friday Harbor is a town in San Juan County, Washington, United States. The town is a major commercial center of the San Juan Islands archipelago (an archipelago is a sea or stretch of water containing many islands). In 1845, the Hudson’s Bay Company laid claim to San Juan Island and in 1850, they built a salmon curing station. A few years later they started a sheep farm. The town was officially incorporated in 1909 and today, remains the only incorporated town in the San Juan Islands. The town today remains prosperous due to new industries – tourism, retirement, real estate and construction.

Victoria
Named for Queen Victoria and known as the “Garden City,” Victoria, British Columbia is a one of the oldest cities in the Pacific Northwest. The beautifully manicured Butchart Gardens are regarded as some of the best in the world and nothing reminds you of Downton Abbey like High Tea at the Empress Hotel. With the second oldest Chinatown in North America and a vibrant port, Victoria offers a wealth of cultural delights.

Choice on Tour
Choose to independently explore the city on the hop-on hop-off double decker coach, or explore the stunning 55-acre Butchart Gardens.

Port Angeles, WA
The city’s beautiful harbor was dubbed “Puerto de Neustra Senora de los Angeles (Port of Our Lady of the Angels) by Spanish explorer Francisco de Eliza in 1791. The city, located in the state of Washington, is the site of the largest prehistoric Indian village and burial ground found in the United States. Port Angeles has something for every traveler, whether your interest is kayaking, wine tasting, antiquing, eating or just spending time on the beautiful beaches.

Olympic National Park
Located in Washington state, the park was originally created in 1909 by U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt and was designated a national park by President Franklin Roosevelt in 1938. Prior to the influx of European settlers, Olympic’s human population consisted of Native Americans, whose use of the peninsula was thought to have consisted mainly of fishing and hunting. The park has four basic regions: the Pacific coastline, alpine areas, the west side temperate rainforest and the forest of the drier east side. In 1981 the park was designated a World Heritage Site. Today the park offers a variety of recreational activities depending on the season and spectacular views all year round.

Hoh Rain Forest
The Hoh Rain Forest is located on the Olympic Peninsula in western Washington. It is one of the largest temperate rainforests in the U.S. Several different plants can be seen in the forest. Many unique mosses and lichens are also present, which are consumed by deer, elk and other animals. Many native fauna also make the rainforest their home, such as the northern spotted owl, bobcat, cougar, Olympic black bear, Roosevelt elk and black-tailed deer.

Hurricane Ridge
Hurricane Ridge is the most easily accessible mountain area within Olympic National Park. Hurricane Ridge is named for its intense gales and winds. In clear weather, fantastic views can be enjoyed throughout the year.
