Take a snap in front of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco or sip on cocktails at a posh rooftop bar in Los Angeles as you walk in the footsteps of Hollywood's stars.
In Alaska, cruise past narrow fjords and giant glaciers, hike in dense rainforest, and anchor in quiet, secluded coves as you watch hundreds of Humpback whales feed. It’s no wonder that Alaska is home to the best whale watching in the world, a haven for the planet’s largest populations of Humpback whales. The last frontier, Alaska is wildlife central with grizzlies, wolves, caribou, eagles, moose, and polar bears.
