Leavenworth Travel Guide
Welcome to Leavenworth, WA!
Leavenworth is a unique, Bavarian-style village located in northern Washington. The character-laden buildings house various shops and restaurants, including authentic German bakeries and confectionaries. The city hosts a number of unique events throughout the year, including the Leavenworth International Accordion Celebration, where attendees are entertained by accordion music and competitions in June. Village Art in the Park is another annual event that takes place from the beginning of May until mid-October and is hailed as the longest running outdoor art show in the Pacific Northwest. Children flock to Icicle Junction Family Fun Center, a five-acre entertainment park that features a replica locomotive, a miniature golf course and batting cages. Winter does not limit the number of activities in Leavenworth; there are a myriad of trails for snowshoeing and snowmobiling, and the Stevens Pass Nordic Center is a popular cross-country skiing facility that offers use of professionally groomed trails for a fee.
Icicle Junction is a landscaped, five-acre entertainment park with an 18-hole Bavarian-theme miniature golf course, bumper boats, a sport court, a movie theater, an arcade with video games, jump shot basketball, pool tables and a rock climbing wall.
