Coffee shops are selling pumpkin spice lattes by the barrel, it seems everyone has the sniffles, and gas prices dropped for the first time all year…
Its fall, folks!
The northwest is smack dab in the middle of the prettiest, sunniest, most colorful autumn in recent memory. Halloween quickly passed, which means Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner. It’s time to stop putting off holiday planning, but don’t worry, Clipper Vacations has some seasonal tours lined up that are sure to get you in the spirit. Get ready for karaoke Christmas carols, garden lights and Bavarian brats.
If you find yourself in Vancouver, ride in a decorated trolley and sing Christmas carols as you visit two of the city’s best light displays with our Karaoke Christmas Lights Tour. Spend time walking through both the Bright Nights at Stanley Park and the Festival of Lights and see decorated neighborhoods along the way. The tour picks up from three convenient downtown locations and lasts three hours.
Portland also has a similar tour to offer. Cruise down lighted boulevards on your way to see the festivities at five different destinations including the Pittock Mansion, hot chocolate at Queen Anne Mansion, the Portland Racetrack, and more. Plus, see a giant Christmas tree at Pioneer Courthouse Square, rated the third best square in North America.
In Seattle? Hop on a comfy motorcoach and head to Leavenworth, a Bavarian-style town with plenty of Christmas cheer. Spend the day eating hearty dishes and drinking even heartier beer, or take a look at the shops and art galleries. Whatever you do, be sure to have a good view of Front Street as the sun is setting. As Santa Claus rides into town, the Christmas lights come on for a dazzling display.
The last holiday tour you should know about is the Holiday Lights Tour to The Butchart Gardens in Victoria. Each year the gardens light up in a spectacular display with plenty of activities, including an outdoor ice rink. This tour includes pick up and drop off from Victoria hotels and lets you chose between several departure times.
