Experienced These Washington Towns in Fall? Must Go This Weekend!
How much of the State of Washington have you seen? There are so many wonderful places to visit in our state, offering a wide array of things to do, see and discover.
This time of year, there are plenty of opportunities to experience gorgeous fall colors as you wind your way through much of Washington. As someone born and raised in the Wenatchee Valley, I can recommend a couple of North Central Washington towns that are awesome any time of the year, including autumn. Chelan and Leavenworth.
Washington State Must-Do Getaways
Whether you're looking to pack a lot into a day trip or want to take your time and make an extended weekend out of it, Leavenworth and Chelan can provide you with all of the experiences you could want. Breathtaking natural beauty, fabulous food, recreational options, sightseeing, local wines & beer, and a wide assortment of tourist attractions.
Breathtaking Cascade Mountain Falls Colors
In the Eastern Slopes of the Cascade Mountains, Leavenworth is stunning in October. Fall colors abound in and around the Bavarian Village, which makes for the perfect atmosphere this time of year. Though their traditional Oktoberfest isn't happening this year and is slated to temporarily relocate to Wenatchee in 2022, Leavenworth still has plenty of reason to wear your lederhosen and hoist a stein. Local restaurants and shops enthusiastically welcome visitors and work hard to make your stay memorable.

Deepest Lake in the Western United States
Chelan is a hospitable little town situated on the shores of Lake Chelan. Summertime is the right time to be on the lake and thousands visit every year. However, don't overlook the beauty and enjoyment of visiting Lake Chelan in the fall. Some world-class wineries await you and there are many first-rate restaurant and lodging options available. A cruise up lake to Stehekin is a must for a memorable day to soak in some of the PNW's most amazing natural beauty.
