Located between the Columbia Plateau and western Washington, Wenatchee is considered a mountain gateway, and it offers one of the most idyllic settings in this region of Washington. Although it's a rather small town, Wenatchee offers big fun and adventure, since its physical setting provides so much to do and see. I recently had to drive from eastern Washington to western Washington, and my drive took me through Wenatchee. As I drove through the pretty little town, I was immediately drawn to its charm and natural beauty, so I decided to get off the beaten path and book a hotel in Wenatchee. Within minutes on my HotelTonight app, I had found the perfect hotel for my mini Wenatchee adventure. With a room waiting for me, I drove to the hotel to check in so that I could start exploring this charming town for myself.
Wenatchee's historic downtown has earned many accolades over the years, both state and national, and for good reason – it's a clean and pretty, historic downtown. Wenatchee's Main Street is the epitome of small town America, and it's home to a number of small businesses, from sports shops to clothing boutiques. And, of course, there are some great little restaurants and cafes in the area, so you'll definitely want to head downtown when you get hungry.
There's a reason why Wenatchee is nicknamed the "Apple Capital of the World" – this city is full of picturesque apple orchards. Since apples are essential to Wenatchee's economy, I decided to visit one of the local orchards and go apple picking. While at the orchard, I met some locals who shared their favorite tips for enjoying their city, and their tips just happened to lead me to the best apple pie I've ever tasted.
Wenatchee is a great place to live for anybody who loves the outdoors. There are so many options for outdoor recreation in Wenatchee that you'll never be bored. The Wenatchee Valley offers great hiking, hunting, fishing, whitewater rafting, boating and water-skiing. Then, of course, the winter months bring great skiing at Mission Ridge, which is just half an hour outside of the city. Since Wenatchee is located in the center of Washington, it's an easy drive to almost any other city in the state. So whether you want to go to Spokane or to Seattle next, it's a painless drive from Wenatchee.
