The Sound of Music in Leavenworth
Take the Train to Washington’s Little Bavaria.
One of our most popular getaways is back! It has a little bit of everything: live theatre, stunning outdoor views, a train through beautiful country, and the old world charm of Bavaria without a long plane ride!
Fly to Seattle, where lunch is included on the waterfront. Just adjacent to the restaurant is famous Pike Place Market. Shop for a few goodies found in the Pacific Northwest or perhaps just watch the flying fish! In the late afternoon, board Amtrak’s Empire Builder for a short journey into the majestic mountains of Washington. At the heart of the state you’ll find Leavenworth, Washington’s own Little Bavaria. Your accommodations are located close to the center of the village with a full breakfast included each day. Bavarian Lodge – 3 nights (L)
Surrounded by orchards in the heart of the Wenatchee Valley, the community of Cashmere is the home of Liberty Orchards, makers of “Applets and Cottlets,” the fruit and nut confections. Enjoy complimentary samples, time for shopping and tour the factory. Learn the history of the region on a docent-guided tour of the Cashmere Pioneer Village and Museum. Back in Leavenworth, enjoy lunch at your leisure and an optional walking tour of historic downtown. Dinner is included at King Ludwig’s German Restaurant, served family-style, prior to tonight’s performance of the popular musical The Sound of Music. Performed outdoors with the mountains of the Wenatchee Forest in the background, you’ll feel like you’re in the hills of Switzerland with the Von Trapp Family! (FB,D)
