Leavenworth in Washington

This little mountain town in the Cascade Mountains is conveniently located only two hours from Seattle. It is close enough to easily get away but remote enough to feel like you are going on a wilderness adventure. The German-themed village is especially pretty in the winter when the town becomes all aglow with holiday lights, dustings of snow and the spirit of the holiday season.
