Tours on the Pacific Coast

America’s Pacific Coast is ripe with adventure. From stunning National Parks like Denali, Yosemite, and Olympic National Parks to quaint coastal villages like Monterey, you can explore it all with Road Scholar. Curious to learn what you can see? Here are some of our top trips to Hawaii and the Pacific Coast:


  • National Parks: One of America’s key defining traits is its National Parks system, and the West Coast is abundant with federally preserved areas for you to explore. At Road Scholar, you can explore National Parks across the entire West Coast, including Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada, where you can see glacial lakes hidden in the Rocky Mountains, or Yosemite National Park in California, where you can see Half Dome or El Capitan. Other West Coast National Parks include Sequoia, Kings Canyon, Death Valley, Olympic, Joshua Tree, Channel Island, and Volcano National Park.
  • Water activities: A trip to the Pacific Coast isn’t complete without admiring the scenery and wildlife from the water. At Road Scholar, we have water-based activities for every comfort level. If you’re on a Hawaiian tour for seniors, you can go snorkeling to spot unique marine life in colorful reefs. If you find yourself in Washington, you can go kayaking on the Columbia River or along the forested coasts of the San Juan Islands.
  • Mountain explorations: North America’s West Coast has one of the most diverse landscapes in the world. Due to major plate tectonic activity eons ago, sprawling mountain ranges have shaped the landscape along the West Coast, which means you can embark on hikes in the Rockies in Alberta, Canada, or the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California. With Road Scholar, you’ll be able to explore these mountain ranges with expert guides who can teach you about the history, geography, and wildlife of the area.
  • Island voyages: As with any coast, there are plenty of islands in the distance that are worth discovering. At Road Scholar, we have plenty of island tours for seniors on the West Coast, such as the Channel Islands, Hawaiian Islands, and San Juan Islands.


These are just some of the many Pacific Coast and Hawaii adventure tours offered through Road Scholar. If you’re looking for a winter getaway to the warmth of the Pacific Coast, whether it be Hawaii or San Diego, book with Road Scholar today.
