Astoria, Oregon - Located on the Columbia River and only miles from the Pacific Ocean, Astoria is the oldest American settlement west of the Rockies. Surrounded by water and trees, Astoria is filled with endless scenic beauty and miles of long sandy beaches. Spend your day discovering unique shops, the bridge of a World War II warship, or the Columbia River Maritime Museum.

At Sea - Cruising - Cruising

San Francisco, California - Much has been written about the Bay Area. From its seafood and sourdough breads to Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco is the ideal city for visitors. Trolleys and prominent landmarks make getting around this eclectic metropolis easy. One of the best views in town can be had from the Coit Tower, one of the most prominent landmarks in the city and a fine example of Art Deco architecture.

Los Angeles, California - Los Angeles is a relatively young city, barely over a century old. This 467-square-mile desert basin is not only the center of the world's film industry; it also plays a major role in television, fashion, music and art. No wonder some of the world's most famous individuals choose L.A. as their home. The sunsets over the Pacific are nothing less than spectacular, and there are 72 miles of incredible oceanfront beaches from which to enjoy them.
