In the summer, visitors can escape the summer heat by taking a wine-tasting tour or wild ride on a river-rafting day trip. The vast area surrounding Leavenworth provides outdoor enthusiasts with a wilderness ready for hiking, biking and rock climbing.
And in July the Leavenworth Summer Theater opens two outdoor and one indoor summer productions. Watching the sun set against the jagged mountain peaks as theater performers entertain is truly an experience that can't be beat.
In the winter, Leavenworth embodies a romantic winter wonderland with sleigh rides, dog sledding, alpine skiing, cross country skiing and snow shoeing. For those looking to stay warm, they can sip hot chocolate and wander through the downtown shops enjoying specialty cheeses, chocolates, wines and unique gifts.
Spring brings new flowers, beginnings and a fresh harvest to this lovely area. While hiking, rafting and fishing are the main reasons guests visit the region, events are always a part of the culture of Leavenworth and they are sure to entertain your sense of spirit. Leavenworth’s many rivers, creeks and lakes are home to kokanee, sockeye salmon, bass, yellow perch and several species of trout. Bring your fly rod to take advantage of some of the state’s best spring fly fishing.
