Rollin’ on the River!

Wow! These are the words that came to mind on today’s Urban Excursions EPIC senior outing on our fall Portland Spirit River Cruise up the Columbia! We had scheduled the outing for months and were able to make the trip just as they re-opened 84. Our senior group had such a fun time taking in the beautiful views of the Gorge and despite the fire damage, we celebrated the perseverance and beauty of one of our favorite natural places! Thank you Oregon. . .We LOVE you!

Urban Excursions is thrilled that the weather has taken a turn and it’s finally Pedi-Cab Season! We want to give a special thanks to Kyle and his crew at PDX Pedicab for being over-the-top accommodating to our fun group on their senior outing!

Tulip Festival and Forests of FUN!

Urban Excursions is finally surfacing after a loooong winter for some fun senior outings at our local favorite spots! First of all, we enjoyed many visits to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival to really celebrate spring, Oregon style! There is nothing more breathtaking then a sunny day at the tulip farm with rows and rows of colorful blooms! And not to be outdone, we also visited the World Forestry Center for Earth Day  and really got in touch with nature these last few weeks. It feels so good to be out and about with friends as the days get longer and warmer!
