In north central Washington, the Lake Chelan National Recreation Area almost completely surrounds the small town of Winthrop. The many rivers and forests nearby feel secluded and untouched, attracting hikers and mountain bikers in the warm months and cross-country skiers in winter. While you’re in the area, take advantage of prime springtime conditions for wildflowers and wildlife viewing.
In the 1970s, Winthrop underwent an overhaul to pay homage to its Gold Rush roots. Today, it looks like it might have in the 1880s, with hitching posts, Old West–style storefronts, and wooden-plank sidewalks. To get in the spirit of things, you can watch cattle drives and medicine shows or step past the swinging doors of a saloon billed as the oldest in the state.
