During your ride, you'll be warmed by the thick wool blankets, and stories of Leavenworth's past. At the end of your journey, hot apple cider will be offered to you.
The inns and hotels in the city have swimming pools to refresh you on hot summer days. Leavenworth even has a large public swimming pool available. Of course, nothing is more refreshing than a dip in the Wenatchee River. Just behind town is Waterfront Park and Blackbird Island with a swimming beach and adjacent lakes and streams.
An exhilarating experience for both beginners and experienced adventurers is Wenatchee whitewater rafting. The river has relaxing calm stretches, as well as Class 3 to 3+ rapids. Refer to link below for listing of rafting options.
A family excursion to the Enzian Falls putting course will delight all ages. With panoramic views of the mountains, waterfalls and streams, and occasional visits by mountain goats, this is an easy fun way to enjoy one another.
