Day 1 - Vancouver, Canada Vancouver is the third largest city in Canada. This young city became part of the Canadian Confederation in 1871. Its history remains visible to the naked eye; along the waterfront visitors can see everything from cobblestone late-Victorian Gastown to shiny postmodern glass cathedrals. In 1792, Captain George Vancouver explored Burrard Inlet during a coastal survey of what is now known as the Inside Passage. But it was not until gold was discovered on the Fraser River in the 1860s that Vancouver actually became a town. At that time, the city was known as Gastown, named for saloonkeeper “Gassy Jack” Deighton, who opened Vancouver's first bar in 1867. A fire destroyed the settlement two months after it was incorporated. Most of the buildings in Vancouver date to the rebuilding of the small city in 1886. The Canadian Pacific Railway was completed in 1889, with Vancouver as its terminus, and the city established itself as Canada's main port for trade with the Orient. Today, the Port of Vancouver is still Canada's largest port, serving as a gateway to China and Japan. In the early 1900s, Vancouver boomed with the development of the fishing and timber industries. World War II catapulted the city's economy into the modern era, and successful redevelopment in the past twenty years has made Vancouver a very livable modern city. Several new structures were built for Expo, the 1986 World's Fair. Canada Place Pier, currently the home of the Vancouver Trade and Convention Centre, was built in 1985 to house the Canadian Pavilion for Expo. It was modeled after the old sailing ships and from the back looks similar to a Spanish galleon. A polyhedron-shaped building, which looks like a giant silver golf ball, was also built for Expo and is now the home of the Vancouver Science Centre.
Day 2 - Victoria, British Columbia This intimate, sophisticated seaside city is the vacation capital of Canada and the premier tourist spot in the Pacific Northwest. Victoria is situated on the southern tip of Vancouver Island and sparkles in one of Canada's mildest climates. This area is the sunniest spot in the province and the gentlest in the country in terms of environment and lifestyle. Victoria's unique character is deeply rooted in its 150-year history. The city's British Colonial heritage is still very much in evidence, but contemporary Victoria has a distinctly Pacific Northwest flavor. Today, Victoria is best known as the capital city of British Columbia, a world-renowned tourism destination.
Day 3 - Seattle
Day 4 - At Sea
Day 5 - Portland The largest city in Maine, Portland was founded in 1632 on the Casco Bay Peninsula. It quickly prospered through shipbuilding and the export of inland pines, which made excellent masts. A long line of wooden wharves stretched along the seafront, with the merchants’ houses on the hillside above.
Day 6 - Longview, Washington
Day 7 - At Sea
Day 8 - San Francisco, California San Francisco's bounty overflows. Everywhere you look, every place you go, there's something to see or something interesting to do. The "City by the Bay" combines a splendid setting with cultural and historical elements, making San Francisco one of the finest and most beloved cities in the world. Visitors to San Francisco find themselves faced with very difficult decisions - what to see and do first. There are so many possibilities that its virtually impossible to see and do everything in one visit. The city itself is relatively small; many of the areas of interest are in close proximity of each other. From downtown to Chinatown and from North Beach to Fisherman's Wharf, there are numerous historical monuments, modern buildings, Victorian masterpieces, museums, parks, gardens and ethnic neighborhoods. Its no wonder that San Francisco captures the heart of all who visit.
Day 9 - At Sea
Day 10 - San Diego, California, USA Free from smog and jungle-like freeways, San Diego sits gracefully around a beautiful curving bay. Although affluent and conservative, this second largest city in California is also amiable and easygoing. San Diego has a vibrant and active downtown area, and since the late 1970s several blocks of early 20th century architecture have been stylishly renovated, while the sleek modern bank buildings symbolize the city's growing economic significance on the Pacific Rim. San Diego is the birthplace of California. Portuguese explorer Juan Rodrigues Cabrillo landed here in 1542; since then, San Diego has been under Spanish, Mexican and after 1846, American rule. The city really took off with the arrival of the Santa Fe Railroad in the 1880s, but in terms of trade and significance it has long played second fiddle to Los Angeles. However, during World War II the U.S. Navy made San Diego their Pacific Command Center and the military continue to dominate the local economy, along now with tourism. Within easy reach of the downtown area, encompassing 1,400 acres of cultural, recreational and environmental delights, San Diego's Balboa Park is a sumptuous place with trees, gardens, traffic-free promenades and a large concentration of Spanish-colonial style buildings. The Hillcrest area is the lively and artsy center of the city, and Old Town San Diego is now a historical park where the city's Spanish and Mexican history and heritage are most evident. The Gaslamp Quarter, once the heart of frontier San Diego, is today filled with smart streets lined with chic cafés, antique stores, art galleries and gas lamps (powered by electricity). Most of the eastern part of the county is taken up by the 600,000-acre Anza-Borrego Desert. Another must-see is the city's most famous attraction, the San Diego Zoo.
