Leavenworth WA is a small town that successfully recreated itself as a Bavarian styled, Christmas oriented town. Beginning as a small timber town, it became the headquarters for a regional railroad for a time until the railroad relocated up the road. In the early ’60s Leavenworth set out to transform itself.
The town itself is an visual imitation of a Bavarian village. Beer is ver popular with several microbrewery options. There are a lot of Christmas themed stores and several German restaurants. At Christmas they do a lot of Christmas lights.
We stayed in the Icicle Creek Campground just outside of town. It is located between a 2-lane highway and Icicle Creek/River. The river splits temporarily just upstream of the campground and the smaller part is called the creek and passes by the campground before rejoining the main flow downstream of the campground.
When we arrived and checked in, we were guided to our spot and directed in. I’m certain I could have backed our coach into our spot in 2 or 3 (or maybe 4) moves. The man who spotted me had me in there in a single move. LOL!
I’ll let pictures tell the rest of the story.
Thanks for taking a look.
