At the crossroads of the Columbia and Wenatchee Rivers, Wenatchee is tucked away in a rugged valley full of natural and manmade wonders, from challenging golf courses to rocky trails. The Wenatchee Valley's numerous orchards, fruit stands and annual Apple Blossom Festival have garnered the area the title of "Apple Capital of the World." With the snow-capped Cascades to the west and the mighty Columbia to the east, the Wenatchee area offers no shortage of activities for the adventurous traveler.

At Escape Tactics, it is a Bavarian Masquerade everyday as you and your team are tasked with finding clues and solving puzzles before time runs out.

A bunch of my family members and I went two days ago, and we had such a great experience at Escape Tactics. This is a must do in Leavenworth for couples, a family, or group of friends. The Das Boot room that we did really ties in the whole experience of the town. I’ve done escape rooms in a few different cities across the country, and they all feel different. The game master was very nice and they’re building a new room right now that I would love to do next time I’m in the area. Whether you’re a tourist or you’re a local with guests in town, you should definitely book an hour here!

Wow, what a find! My wife & I happened to be visiting and drive by the Columbia River where we encountered a Pike's Place like public market (in Seattle). We almost drove on though I said "Hey, what's in there?" and glad we entered. A warehouse-like building with a myriad of small shops and restaurants in this large open building. A very cool atmosphere!

Fish ladders and park are outstanding and very interesting to look at and learn about. We were glad to see the old museum and visitor center in 2019 before they closed it to move everything off the dam. Check their website carefully if going as most of it will be closed for awhile as they renovate for a year or two. They told us the outside park area will not close.

Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center

This museum focuses on the history of Washington's Wenatchee Valley area.

Reviewed By danielwf - Fort Bragg, United States

What an imaginative use for a classical post office! We paused to visit based on the TripAdvisor reviews and were rewarded with a memorable experience. The traveling exhibit on the fate of Japanese Americans in the Second World War was moving. The exhibits on local history centering on the contributions of early settlers conveyed a personal feeling of a community that struggled to turn a desert into a center of fruit production. Put aside two hours and you will be very pleased.

The seats are amazingly comfortable. It's great to be able to enjoy a good movie without having to squirm around trying to get comfortable.
