Just an hour and a half up Highway 2 from our home in Marysville, you’ll come upon the town of Leavenworth. Virtually every store, gas station, hotel, restaurant—-and even Starbucks!—-is decorated in such a way as to make you think you’ve landed in an authentic Bavarian village.
It’s fun any time of the year, but our two favorites months are October and December. We’re taking our family there early in December to see all the tree-festival fun (and I’ll post some pictures of that after), but here’s a peek at our visit last month to Oktoberfest. We really weren’t planning to go for that. We were just driving around on a rare day off together, and before we knew it we’d driven over the mountains. Serendipitous. 🙂
