Quick overnight escapes

Even if you haven’t made a plan yet, you can probably find a spot for a quick overnight escape, if you go during the week.

  • The forecast is looking almost summery. Snag a campsite to sleep under the evergreens with kids. Just remember to pack extra-warm gear for nighttime.
  • Zip over the mountains for Bavarian charm in Leavenworth; outdoor pools won’t be open yet; pick a hotel with an indoor pool!
  • Looking for sun? (Raising hand!) Try on Wenatchee’s many attractions, including a riverfront bike path, local fruit and all that sunshine.
  • You’ll need to go the “long way,” but a jaunt to Winthrop provides an excellent change of scenery and Old-West fun for kids and families.
  • Scenic road trip itineraries around Washington provide inspiration for a quick spring escape.
