Romantic Weekend Getaway in the Cascades
The North Cascades offer bright mountain mornings, lazy afternoons, and wine- and ale-soaked evenings, making it a perfect escape for couples. At first glance, the town of Leavenworth can come across as a tourist trap, but once you dig a little deeper, you'll likely fall head over lederhosen for this Bavarian-style village, which is rich in dining, drinking, and shopping options. The town's charm is hard to ignore: flowerboxes and murals adorn buildings, German-accented street festivals and markets abound, and the relaxed pace of village life is a welcome retreat from big-city living. To round out the weekend, meander through the sun-drenched Wenatchee wine and orchard country, and partake in a bit of wine tasting to toast your good fortune. – By Lora Shinn
