As popular as Leavenworth is, the middle of the week brings a bit of a slower pace and a touch more access to the region’s many romantic as well as family-friendly attractions. And that gives last-minute planners an opportunity to impress their loved ones with the perfect vacation. So why not set your sights on midweek?
Discover the same amazing variety of delicious food and drink, the same blue skies and outdoor adventures, and the entire village at full hum. Choose village lodging with friendly staff to greet you in small, boutique hotels downtown, charming cabins and vacation homes on the river, or opulent luxury accommodations that intertwine with nature. Check in, then head into the heart of Leavenworth. It’s an easy stroll to enjoy the charm of a tiny village filled with amenities like brimming flowerpots, shops, parks, restaurants, and live music in the Gazebo.
If you’re in the mood for another kind of pedestrian adventure, explore trails that access the nearby mountains and rivers. Fall hikes in Icicle Canyon are considered some of the best in America, and the autumnal color along Highway 2 and the trails adjacent to Lake Wenatchee is glorious. Midweek, the woods will be a little quieter, bringing you closer to the tranquility of nature. Choose from a selection of spa opportunities to put the finishing touch on deep renewal.
Never forget your taste buds when you visit Leavenworth! The wineries, cideries, and breweries proudly offer outstanding tastes and bottles to take back to your room or home for holiday meals. The wave of farm to table has taken root, creating a broad array of food choices from Bavarian, to brew pub, to locally sourced bistro.
Visiting midweek will have you living a little more like a local. Discover the amazing Farmer’s Market on Thursdays, and throw your beach blanket out on Barn Beach or enjoy the local musical talent in the evening. Make plans today to take the road less traveled and bag a midweek stay in Leavenworth.
