Sleep Under the Sea at the Georgia Aquarium

Sleepover guests will receive complimentary sleeping mats, bedtime snacks, a light breakfast, guided tours and activities, and access to all Georgia Aquarium presentations to celebrate the resort’s grand opening and new partnership with the Georgia Aquarium.
Learn About Urban Gardening with A Master Regenerative Farmer
Guests staying at WorldMark Portland Waterfront Park will be introduced to the concept of urban permaculture through complimentary, interactive workshops and an on-site vertical demo garden in partnership with master regenerative farmer, Daniel Campbell. The Portland destination will be piloting the program to champion the urban growing movement, and participants will get their hands dirty and dig into topics like regenerative soil health, native beekeeping, biochar and carbon capture, pickling and pruning— all from the convenience of the resort’s outdoor patio. The workshops are complimentary for all guests and provide an opportunity to give back during summer trips: produce procured will be donated back to a Portland CSA to feed local families. Plus, travelers will learn how to live more holistically and reduce waste by embracing their surrounding ecosystems to grow their own food, at scale — no matter where it is they call home.
