Florence, OR (PRWEB) November 30, 2007
Sex, drugs, racism and kidnapping? In a travel magazine? You bet! Actually, Northwest Travel magazine is just letting readers in on some secrets of the old Northwest, from back in the day when brothels and opium dens hidden beneath the streets afforded a stark contrast to the respectable life seen above. The December issue features five underground tours led by colorful tour guides who don't mince words in recounting the lesser-known history of Portland, Seattle, Pendleton and even Havre, Montana.
In the same issue, read about three loop tours in southern Oregon, including icons such as Crater Lake, colorful towns on the Oregon coast, and the beautiful Rogue River. With three-, five- and seven-day loops that take you from the mountains to the sea and back again, there's just no end to the possibilities. Whether you like wineries, lighthouses, redwoods, waterfalls or golf, southern Oregon has it all.
Holiday celebrations on the water stretch from Newport, on the Oregon coast, to Lake Coeur d'Alene in Idaho, to Bainbridge Island, Bellingham, Blaine and Tri-Cities in Washington, and Chemainus in British Columbia. So Deck the Halls on the water this year, using Northwest Travel as your guide.
The holiday issue includes so much more, from short day hikes in metro Vancouver to dog sledding in Montana to winemaker dinners all over the Northwest. In fact, every issue of Northwest Travel is packed with intriguing stories that highlight the melding of natural beauty and urban culture that makes the Northwest a premier travel destination. Northwest Travel is available by subscription (http://www.northwestmagazines.com) and on newsstands at Barnes & Noble, Borders, Safeway, Fred Meyer and now, at Metropolitan Markets in the Seattle/Tacoma area and Market of Choice stores in Eugene and Ashland. You can also catch a glimpse of Northwest Travel on the set in upcoming segments of "Grey's Anatomy." Don't miss it!
