We LOVE personally giving recommendations about what sorts of beautiful things there are to see, taste, and experience here in the Wenatchee Valley, but if you want a place to start your research, we have listed a few beautiful and informative places to begin. Wenatchee, Washington offers a generous array of activities – so there truly is something for everyone to enjoy. Happy exploring!
Boasting 300 days of sunshine a year, the greater Wenatchee area is one of the most understated destinations in the state. From high desert land to eastern slope forests, there’s something incredible for everyone of all ages. Pybus Public Market with its local bounty from farmers and artists showcases everything in the Columbia River valley. Fit in a meandering drive to Horse Lake Reserve, hike any direction, celebrate the views high above coulees and stroll among wild flowers in spring. Put Ohme Gardens on your bucket list plus so many parks, playgrounds, old town shopping and antique malls.
This remake of Little Bavaria is a gem worth visiting. As the most popular tourist attraction in the State, explore nature walks, ski jump hills, a Nutcracker Museum (largest anywhere), boutique breweries, art, theater and exciting festivals throughout the year.
