Sharleen Dickson, Lady on the Go
Girls just want to have fun – what a better way than a weekend away! Mark your calendar for November 29 to December 1, 2013
Do you need to take a weekend break? What about a quick get away with a group of ladies, to Portland Oregon? The coach tour departs from Vancouver, Surrey, and Coquitlam. This tour is great for Moms and daughters, girlfriends or just come along and meet some new friends. Or if you are from another area, Portland is easily reached by air.
We start by crossing the border about 8AM at 176 St. Portland is about a six hour drive. Our first stop is Northgate Shopping Center for lunch or if you prefer skip lunch and shop. Another quick coffee break and we arrive at our destination – Portland in the tax free state of Oregon.
Our two night stay is at the Monarch Hotel, the Monarch offers you wonderful service for your sojourn to Portland. Each room comes with cable TV and in-room movies. A restaurant and lounge, a seasonal swimming pool and a twenty-mile walking/jogging path is also offered. We are right across the street from Clackamus Mall. Not to mention the World Market in the strip mall next door, next to Nordstrom’s Rack. Find foods, wines and all sorts of unique stuff from all around the world at the World Market. Spend Friday night at the mall or even take in a movie at one of the 20 screens at the theatre in Clackamus.
Saturday morning we are up early – well not too early – enjoy your complimentary breakfast before heading out to Woodburn Outlet Mall. Find impressive savings at Adidas, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Cole Haan, Eddie Bauer, Fossil, Gap, J.Crew, Max Studio, Nautica, Nike, The North Face, Polo Ralph Lauren, Puma, Tommy Hilfiger, and more at the Woodburn Outlet Mall. Take time for lunch at the Outlet Mall or plan for lunch at our next stop – Washington Square. I hear the Cheesecake Factory is very good. Washington Square delivers an exceptional set of stores and restaurants in gleaming, light-filled spaces. You’ll find an enviable list of stores – from Apple and Ann Taylor, to Coach, XXI Forever, H&M, J.Crew, Oakley, Papyrus, Pottery Barn, Williams-Sonoma and so much more. Need Nordstrom? They have Oregon’s largest. Not to mention Dick’s Sporting Goods, JCPenney, Macy’s and Sears. Ok so all this mall crawling too much – take the Go train to downtown Portland to check out the city. The Go train station is at Clackamus Mall – right across the street.
Sunday morning start with your complimentary breakfast. Time to load up the coach with all the shopping bargains, and start the journey home. To help with the shopping withdrawal we make one last stop at Southcenter, near Seattle for lunch and or a bit of shopping. We arrive at the Canadian border about 6PM. Back to the reality of home, but with a smile on your face as you remember what fun to get away and be you! Because Girls really do want to have fun!
