Daily Itinerary

SkylineDay 1

Fly non-stop to Seattle, arriving at 9am. Enjoy a lavish Sunday Brunch buffet, with dozens of selections from carved meats to desserts at Salty’s on Alki, featuring spectacular views of downtown Seattle. The afternoon ferry ride to Bremerton is the longest (50 minutes) and one of the most scenic on the sound. Suquamish is the home of the late Chief Seattle, the Native American who convinced his people to accept the coming of white settlers. Visit the museum and the Chief’s grave. Your lodging for three nights is at the beautiful Clearwater Casino Resort, overlooking the waters of Puget Sound. Dinner is at your leisure and there are several choices on property. There are sidewalks, places to sit outside, a fire ring in the evening; it’s really one of the most wonderful accommodations in our entire catalog. Based on feedback from last year’s group, we added a day to allow more leisure time at Clearwater. (BR)

Day 2

Just down the road from our waterfront home is Poulsbo. Founded by Scandinavian immigrants in the 1880’s, today it’s a popular tourist destination. We’ve arranged a short guided walking tour, along with a visit to Sluy’s, the town’s legendary bakery, where you can pick out a FREE treat! Next stop is Port Townsend. Once a bustling port town, the bay was named by explorer George Vancouver, its historic district is now a nationallandmark. It’s laced with old Victorian homes and buildings from long ago. A great place for lunch and browsing the shops. After lunch, a guided tour by coach shows you “up” town and “down” town Port Townsend. Dinner is in Poulsbo tonight. (FB,D)

FlowersDay 3

Off to Sequim this morning for a visit to the Purple Haze Lavender Farm. Let us treat you to some lavender ice cream, it’s amazing! Our second stop after lunch is in the village of Port Gamble. This old mill town has been restored and has many places to shop or relive a piece of history. Once again, the village is a National Historical Landmark. (FB,L)

SunsetDay 4

More small towns to explore and it’s back on the ferry boats to get there. Board the ferry in Kingston, headed for the Seattle side of the sound. Our destination is Edmunds, and Mukilteo is just 30 minutes away. There you’ll find the Mukilteo Light and a striking waterfront park. Lunch is at Ivar’s, a northwest tradition. After lunch, board the ferry again for the shortest ride, the 12-minute crossing to Clinton on Whidbey Island. Our last destination is Langley, a great little spot with lots of interesting shops. Take the ferry back to Mukilteo and then head on to SeaTac Airport for your 6pm return flight. (FB,L)
