Let Customized Tours take you to one of Washington's most popular annual holiday traditions for families: the Christmas Lighting Festival in the picturesque Bavarian-themed village of Leavenworth. During this full-day event, browse through the village's quaint shops, savor German food from the street stands offering delicious creations, enjoy live outdoor entertainment, let your kids sled down the snow hill, take a horse-drawn carriage ride, and then gather at dusk (on Saturdays and Sundays) for the lighting ceremony as the town becomes ablaze in twinkling lights. Afterward, relax back on the bus as you return home filled with the holiday spirit.
Dress warmly and be prepared for snow. Kids coming along? Bring sleds!
The drive to and from Leavenworth takes about two-and-a-half hours. The entire trip lasts about 12 hours with return to the Seattle Center.
