“The giant redwoods were an awesome sight to behold. The Rogue River Jet Boat Tour should be on everyone’s bucket list! Riding through the Oregon Dunes on a dune buggy was spectacular.” Clark & Marna, Eagan 



Day 1 – Home to San Francisco 

Fly to San Francisco, one of the most exciting and beautiful cities in America! Upon arrival, we will make our way to Fisherman’s Wharf to board a Red and White Fleet boat for a narrated San Francisco Bay cruise. We’ll enjoy sights of Alcatraz Island along with the legendary Golden Gate Bridge. The evening is at your leisure to enjoy more of the sights and sounds of San Francisco and Fisherman’s Wharf. You could take a walk to Lombard Street, the most crooked street in the world or jump on a cable car for a scenic ride. 

Hotel: Holiday Inn Express Fisherman’s Wharf 


Day 2 – San Francisco to Sonoma 

Our luxury motorcoach awaits this morning for an exciting city tour of San Francisco. We’ll travel through the city, hearing stories of the fires, earthquakes and flower power, that helped to shape this unique city. A stop at the Golden Gate Bridge ends our tour in San Francisco. Afterwards, we will cross the Golden Gate Bridge and arrive at Sausalito, a pristine waterfront community located across the Bay, where you can enjoy lunch on your own. We’ll continue into the heart of Sonoma Wine Country with a visit to a charming winery where we’ll enjoy walking the picturesque grounds. We’ll tour the aging caves and enjoy samples of their barrel wine! This evening, enjoy a wonderful dinner as we get to know our fellow travelers.

Day 3 – Sonoma to Eureka

Day 4 – Eureka to Gold Beach 

Today we drive through Redwood National Park and see why it boasts some of the tallest trees in the world—reaching 368 feet and up to 12 feet in diameter. We continue our scenic drive up the rugged coastline and on into Oregon. We have planned a soft adventure for the afternoon—the original Rogue River Jet Boat Tour. The Rogue River Canyon abounds in a variety of wildlife, including osprey, deer, river otters, bald eagles, and more.

Day 6 – Newport 

After a leisurely breakfast, we head to Yaquina Head Lighthouse, located at the mouth of the Yaquina River. Standing at 93 feet tall, it is the tallest lighthouse in Oregon. Another interesting fact is that it was made in Paris in 1868, then shipped to Oregon, and first lit in 1873. The rest of the day is free! You might choose to visit the Oregon Coast Aquarium, have lunch & shop at Bayfront or Nye Beach, or just enjoy a day relaxing on your balcony or by the fireplace in your room. Enjoy your afternoon and evening off to explore this quaint, coastal town.

Roosevelt on September 28, 1937. Then we drive along the picturesque Columbia River Gorge offering spectacular scenery, including the impressive Multnomah Falls. Alpine streams, lakes, and waterfalls create stunning scenery along this region formed by a stream of lava that flowed more than 10,000 years ago.
