Trek Description:

The PNW has two main cities, Portland, OR and Seattle, WA. We’re going to check out both cities and travel between each via the Cascades amtrak train! We will find the eats! We will find the hikes and views! And we will experience some cultural exchange while visiting tribal lands!

Traveling to Portland and Seattle promises a dynamic and fun-filled trip. In Portland, immerse yourself in a vibrant city known for its quirky charm, craft beer scene, and thriving food culture. Explore the iconic Powell’s City of Books, stroll through the enchanting Lan Su Chinese Garden, or wander the eclectic neighborhoods like Alberta Arts District. Seattle, on the other hand, captivates with its stunning waterfront, iconic Space Needle, and thriving music scene. Discover the historic Pike Place Market, take a ferry ride to the picturesque Bainbridge Island, or explore the vibrant Capitol Hill neighborhood. Both cities offer an array of cultural experiences, outdoor adventures, and delectable culinary delights, making them an ideal choice for a fun and memorable trip.
