I would also suggest Ektar 100. It is not particularly expensive and really delivers when properly exposed. Here are examples (some good, some not so good) from my Flickr account if you are interested:

Would you say its worth getting it sent away? I checked your Flickr (nice pics) and saw such a comment. Do you scan your pics yourself?

If London Drug is doing a pretty good job on your Portra, by all means stick with them. I should have qualified my post a bit more; in my area CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreen's has mini-labs in many of their stores.
In my hometown where the family lives, the chain pharmacy also has a mini-lab. Increasingly, it's getting hit or miss with all of them; I won't take my Portra or the rare roll of Ektar to them.
My Portra comes back washed out looking. Walgreen's is the best of them on my Gold 200/Fuji 200 films (new stores, new equipment).

I have the privilege of having the choice of several pro labs in my area and use one of them for my Ektar after having mixed results from the minilab at Costco. The price is the same, but the results are much more reliable. I do my own scans using a Nikon Coolscan 5000 ED for 35mm and an Epson V700 for larger stuff. After seeing the difference between my scans and the ones from the minilab, the cost of the scanners did not seem so bad.

Fuji Superia 400 ASA colour negative fim

This film is very reliable and gives great colours. I do not use anything else with my film cameras. I love the vibrancy of the colour. Give it a go. I posted a review on Adorama a while back. Check it out. ( under Dutz57 - second review on page). 01010322 Fujifilm Fujicolor Superia 400 Color Negative Film ISO 400, 35mm Size, 24 Exposure, CH-24

Here is an image shot recently in China using Fujicolor 400 ASA. The camera was a cheap point and shoot. The local Fuji processing lab did not get the colors quite right this time although they usually do a good job. Unfortunately here in Australia the cost on scaniing negatives during processing costs way too much.

I've been very pleased with Fuji's pro version, 400h. Great natural color and nice grain.

Portra 400NC is my favourite; I use it for everything, give it a try
I shot several rolls of Fuji NPS to take pictures of children and their parents. If the loop you are near is the one I lived just outside of in Chicago (I lived in Presidential Towers) there are some great professional labs. The one I used was Gamma Photo Labs, 314 West Superior Street. I really like the 16x20 "contact prints". Proofs at about 2x3 inches. Great work. Not horribly more expensive than anyone else, but with absolutely great service.
