USA and Canada
Featuring three scenic trains during fall foliage season
Experience the most beautiful portion of the river at her fall foliage best.
Get your girlfriends onboard for a getaway that includes all the things you love to do: world-class shopping, great dining and some pampering at sea on a four night cruise on Holland America’s msZaadam! Our itinerary was made for the ladies but men are welcome to come along!
Designed to carry fewer guests while providing more space for maximum comfort, the ms Zaandam is a prize in the mid-size ship category. Offering spacious public areas and plush accommodations, many staterooms have private verandahs. Your one port of call will be in Victoria where you may decide to walk the waterfront or take an excursion to Butchart Gardens. Other shore excursions will be available and announced closer to departure date. A passport is required for this trip and must be valid at least six months past your tour’s return date
Featuring Virgins Spaceport America and White Sands National Monument
Two 3-night hotel stays anchor this itinerary, full of “rarely or never before visited on a Sports Leisure tour” attractions/destinations. One stay is in a historical city, one in a historical property. Allow us to offer some clues as to your destinations: There is dinner one night in an exclusive club, and at one point in your travels, you’ll ponder where to cross the river. You’ll meet a prince and a general, and learn of some fictional characters from a place called “Downton Abbey” you may enjoy.
Considering the calendar, fall foliage could come into play, but the big question is, “Will they be better inside or out?” The colors we mean. Both hotels are named for famous American families. Visit a historic but new castle (How can it be both?), explore the halls of a famous house of learning.
Featuring a visit to Bearizona Wildlife Park
Visit the Big Apple at the most wonderful time of the year!
With a Christmas visit to Filoli.
Seven live performances are guaranteed to put you in the holiday spirit!
Kick off the holiday season close to home but with a European flair in Victoria, BC where Christmas season arrives with around-the-world traditions! This exclusive holiday itinerary flies roundtrip to/from Victoria, eliminating the ferry ride across the water, and spends all three nights in a terrific location (in a great hotel). After flying in, relax for three nights along the harbor front at The Chateau Victoria Hotel, in your comfortable suite. Partake in a narrated city tour, stopping for high tea at the famous Empress Hotel, tour Craigdarroch Castle, beautifully decorated for Christmas, and enjoy dinner in Butchart Garden’s Dining Room. View the gardens aglow with thousands of twinkling lights while sipping a cup of steaming hot chocolate.
Featuring the Holiday Lights Train and dinner at Shadowbrook
Featuring stays in Salt Lake City and at The Homestead Resort
Join us for our annual “Christmas away from home” tour. Perhaps you’ve done the cooking (and the cleaning) for more years than you can count. Or perhaps your family gatherings aren’t always the best example of holiday spirit? Or you just would prefer to spend the holiday in the company of friends. No matter the reason, we welcome you to our Christmas family.
Travel by SuperCoach III to San Luis Obispo, where you’ll spend two nights at the popular Apple Farm Inn. It’s just the most comfortable place you’ll ever stay in, and has the distinction of being the most popular accommodation in our 35 year history! Cozy and comfortable. A welcome wine and cheese hour greats you.
On Christmas Eve, enjoy some selected sights in and around San Luis Obispo (details to be announced soon). Attend Christmas Eve services at the historic mission (optional). On Christmas Day, head north to San Jose, where we enjoy a holiday feast at the Fairmont Hotel, which also provides our luxurious accommodations for the night. Need some additional holiday cheer? The lights and sounds of Christmas are right outside your front door.
On the 26th, enjoy an included breakfast before boarding the Capital Corridor train for the ride back home, arriving in early afternoon.
A comfortable rail excursion is waiting to deliver you to the nation’s premier New Year’s Day event, the 126th Tournament of Roses Parade. Experience personal attentive service aboard your private railcar, the Silver Lariat escorted by Amtrak’s Coast Starlight, as the farms of the coastal valley give way to the stunning California coastline. Not interested in the journey by private railcar? A limited number of ten seats are available for those who would like to fly both ways!
Spend New Year’s eve at Harris Ranch…
Featuring Key Largo and 4 nights in Key West.
Key West is very pedestrian friendly, and in fact our itinerary includes several short (3-4 block) walks in town to attractions. Warm weather (even in January the average high is 76, the average low 66) is the norm. This unique itinerary sells out every year and is limited to 25 passengers only.
A popular itinerary we offer every two years or so. Fly to Fort Lauderdale for a brief overnight stay. Board Holland America’s beautiful ms Statendam the next day and settle in to your floating home for the next two weeks. With impressive service, delicious meals and a variety of onboard activities, as well as exceptional shore excursions, Holland America remains perfectly suited as our chief cruise line.
Ports of Call include Holland America’s private beach at Half Moon Cay, Cartagena (Columbia), Puerto Caldera (Costa Rica), Corinto (Nicaragua), Puerto Quetzal (Guatamala), Zihuantanejo/Ixtapa and Cabo San Lucas (Mexico) before arriving in San Diego. Your quick flight returns you home on the day you step off the ship!
This trip is a Sports Leisure Vacations’ favorite! And the focus is all about the Ahwahnee Hotel… enjoy an elegant brunch in the grand dining room, have a docent-guided historic tour of the public areas, and spend one night in what is considered the Grand Dame of National Park hotels.
Witness the Eagles & Agriculture Opening Reception. And enjoy a private ranch and barn owl tours. You will also enjoy the Sunday brunch at Harrah’s popular Forest Buffet!
