If your family is looking for a Bavarian vacation, without the flights to Germany, Leavenworth is the place for you. Nestled at the foot of the Cascades, the town is nothing if not scenic with a German spirit your family will cherish. Pack your hiking gear, grab your lederhosen, book your Leavenworth vacation rentals, and get ready for an unforgettable trip to this quaint Washington town.
Leavenworth visitors and residents enjoy seasonal temperatures with occasional extremes. During the summer months, temperatures top out in the high 80s, while cool weather sets in during the winter months, with temperatures in the 30s. Summer visitors can typically take advantage of warm weather and sunny skies, while winter visitors should pack warm coats and snow boots in anticipation of relatively snowy winters.
How to Get Around
If you’re traveling from afar, it’s easiest to get to this Eastern Washington destination by flying into Sea-Tac International Airport. Rent a car at the airport, and take Highway 2 about 100 miles east across the stunning Cascade Mountains. If you’d rather sit back and enjoy the view, book tickets on Amtrak’s Empire Builder route, which stops conveniently at the town’s Icicle Station. Once you arrive in town, you’ll find that most Leavenworth vacation rentals are a quick walk from the town’s highlights and a short drive away from some of Eastern Washington’s most scenic spots.
Things to Do
Inspired by a Bavarian village, Leavenworth’s town center is packed with historic buildings that house a range of shops, restaurants, and even wine tasting rooms. Start your day with a stroll through town, and then gear up for a hike in the nearby Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest.
For an easy hike, Penstock Trail offers a short trail, nice views of the nearby Wenatchee River, and sandy beaches. For a more challenging hike, plan a day trip to Colchuck Lake. This eight-mile trail features a 2,300-foot ascent, wildlife spotting, and stunning views of the impossibly blue Colchuck Lake. Be sure to secure a permit if you plan to camp overnight. There are many opportunities for outdoor recreation in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness region, including Nordic skiing in the winter or swimming and tubing through the Wenatchee River Valley in the summer.
Families can spend time at the city’s five distinct parks featuring a variety of family recreational activities. Enchantment Park is known for its two softball fields, a soccer field, and unique playground. Leavenworth Skate Park is a hit with kids wanting to experience a full skate parking during their vacation. Leavenworth parks also provide opportunities for swimming, bird watching, live music and much more.
The city also boasts four museums, including the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum, which contains a collection of over 6,000 nutrackers dating back to the Roman Empire.
When you’re ready for some wine tasting, take your pick from one of the dozen or so wineries and wine tasting rooms. Throughout the summer, join one of the Leavenworth Wine Walks, which leads wine lovers through the downtown area and to more than 20 wine tasting rooms and tasting areas.
For a small city, Leavenworth hosts some big events and boasts over 170 festivals and events throughout the year. The biggest ticket in town is Leavenworth Oktoberfest, known as one of the biggest and best of its kind outside of Bavaria. For three October weekends each year, the town turns into an autumnal wonderland with German food, beer, music, and family activities. Be sure to book your stay far in advance for this popular event.
If you’d rather visit in the spring instead, mark your calendar for Maifest, which features Bavarian-inspired fun like a maypole dance, traditional German music, and even medieval antiques and an armor demonstration. If winter is more your thing, don’t miss the town’s Christkindlmarkt, a Christmas market filled with seasonal lights and traditional food to keep you warm.
With Bavarian charm, access to the great outdoors, and ample hospitality, Leavenworth is an Eastern Washington gem. Since this is a popular summer and seasonal destination, don’t hesitate to book your Leavenworth vacation rentals far in advance to secure the best cabin in town.
