Leavenworth - A city in Chelan County Washington, Leavenworth was brought into existence by the railroad in the late 1800s. However, by the 1920s, the railroad relocated to Wenatchee greatly crippling this quaint town. It was then that Leavenworth modeled itself after Bavarian villages making it the picturesque tourist destination it is today. Leavenworth is known for Octoberfest, its Nutcracker museum and its holiday festivities. It's not unusual for Western Washingtonians to travel over Steven's Pass to Leavenworth on any given weekend, making it the ideal meeting point to hook up with their friends and family from the East side. Residents consider Leavenworth the best of all worlds conveniently located just 22 miles from Wenatchee and the services it offers and only 100 miles to I-5 in Everett. Leavenworth also boasts the vibrancy and fullness of every characteristic that all four seasons of the year have to offer.
