Welcome to Central Washington

Wenatchee and Leavenworth are the most interesting urban centers here and both are popular stopping-off points on the scenic Cascade Loop drive. (The drive starts and ends in Everett, about 25 miles north of Seattle, and over its 440 miles you'll take in the North Cascades, the Methow Valley, the Wenatchee Valley, the Columbia River and some of the San Juan Islands.) Aside from Leavenworth's Bavarian bonhomie, outdoor adventures are the main draw.
