Leavenworth, Washington, USA
Location: 47° 35' North, 120° 39' West
Population: 2,074 (2000 Census)
Incorporated: September 5, 1906
In August 1997 I joined my sister, mom and dad on a week-long vacation through the Washington state Cascade mountains. Our first destination was Leavenworth, located in the eastern foothills of the Cascades. The Bavarian-themed town is a popular ski resort in the wintertime with local Washington residents, but in the summertime when the snow is melted, it becomes a fun town full of people who want to experience the unique Bavarian flavour.
Of course, it's only normal for one to be sceptical about visiting a so-called Bavarian-themed town in USA without imagining a phoney Disney-fied version of Germany, but don't let this idea turn you off - it's a blast, albeit a tiny bit surreal.
