All 2017 USLHS Tours are now open for reservations! If you have not traveled with us before, you might be wondering whether this is a good fit for you. Here are the top reasons lighthouse aficionados, photographers, and adventurers choose USLHS Lighthouse Tours:
- You will be in the company of lighthouse lovers, history buffs, world travelers and life-long learners who enjoy the camaraderie old friends and new. Our members are known for being fun-loving and inclusive! Single travelers are welcomed and we are often able to find a roommate for them!
- We are often able to explore, climb and/or photograph lighthouses not open to the public, and often found in remote locations. Your journey to a lighthouse could involve charter boats, off road vehicles, helicopters, float planes or perhaps horse drawn carriages! Travelers have even found themselves on golf carts, jet boats, and lobster trawlers just to get that perfect lighthouse viewpoint!
- Tour itineraries are designed to provide opportunities to visit other regional landmarks and attractions, and include free time to shop or relax.
- You are taken care of! We include all transportation, most meals, lodging, admissions, and a skilled tour leader. Our tour packets feature custom journals, tour patches. luggage tags and much more.
- We enjoy sampling local cuisine: How about lobster in Maine? Salmon in Seattle? Or bouillabaisse in Marseilles? It all adds to understanding the unique culture of an area. We understand that travelers might have unique dietary restrictions and will do our best to accommodate.
- USLHS tours help support our lighthouse preservation, grants and education missions. Not only do proceeds from each trip go directly to these pursuits, we make financial contributions to lighthouses we visit along our route, further emphasizing our commitment to their preservation. Also, a portion of your trip is tax-deductible.To view our unique 2017 Lighthouse Tours, visit www.uslhs.org/tours. For more information or to request a catalog, call 415-362-7255.
