Best of the North West!

5164 Deer Harbor Road, Deer Harbor, WA, US

Deer Harbor Charters

Whale watching in the San Juan/Orcas Islands is absolutely amazing. Not only are the islands themselves beautiful and fun to explore, but taking one or more tour boats out to see and photograph the Orcas is something you never forget.

Columbia River Gorge
5.0

Hood River, OR, US

Columbia River Gorge

One of my very favorite places in the United States, the Columbia River Gorge is a playground for nature lovers. There are over 20 breathtaking waterfalls in the area, all of which are well worth a visit. Aside from the famous Multnomah Falls, some of my personal favorites are Bridal Veil, Oneonta Gorge, Latourell, and Elowah. Truly stunning

Hellgate Jetboat Excursions
5.0

966 SW 6th St, Grants Pass, OR, US

Hellgate Jetboat Excursions

What can I say about Hellgate Getboat Excursions other than it is so much fun! Brunch, lunch, or dinner and an adventure; what could be better? Some of my fondest memories are taking these trips with friends and family during the summer.

6831 Avenue of the Giants, Miranda, CA, US

Avenue of the Giants

One more stop on the nature tour that you just cannot miss out on. The first time I ever visited the avenue of the giants as a child, I was awe struck. In all honestly I still get the same feeling as an adult.

Monterey Bay Aquarium
4.5

886 Cannery Row, Monterey, CA, US

Monterey Bay Aquarium

No better place to end this trip down through the Pacific Coast states than to visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium. If any of the stress and pressure from work and city life was still clinging to you after all the previous marvels, it all melts away as you walk through the aquarium. It relaxes and refreshes you.
