Day Trip to Leavenworth

Your excursion begins when a motor coach picks you up the morning and your guide provides a personal boxed breakfast from the Clipper Café, for you to enjoy en route. The trip includes scenic views of mountains and forests as you travel over the Cascades to the Bavarian style village of Leavenworth. After arriving in the quaint town, you will have time to explore on your own, shop at unique stores and galleries, enjoy some German food, and enjoy a warm beverage. At dusk, you will experience the annual Christmas Lighting Festival with music, lights, St. Nicholas and other festivities before re-boarding the motor coach for your return ride.
