This post may be a few weeks late, but I couldn’t not share our trip to Leavenworth with you guys, (and maybe to document it for myself too!), because it was sooo magical! The pictures wont do it justice and if you ever get a chance to go, don’t hesitate! There are so many delicious places to eat and beautiful sights to see! (Oh & if you find yourself there without kids, there are endless wine tastings all over this quaint little town!)
There are lots of photos, and I made a little video too. It’s terrible quality, mostly videos saved from snapchat but I just wanted to share this little place with you! My boys thought it was the North Pole, and it kind of felt like it at times!
We were only there for a couple days, but Ill share where we stayed and ate while we were there!
Where we stayed:
So we were actually originally booked at a hotel 30 minutes outside of Leavenworth because every single room across town had been booked up for mooonths, (Tip! If you plan on going for one of the Christmas Festival Weekends, book a hotel well in advance, I’m talking summer/early fall! And if you can afford to take Friday off of work, do it and go then. It was wayyyy less busy Friday night compared to Saturday!) but when we first got there and were driving around we knew we didn’t want to leave, so I called a couple of the hotels & motels we were driving by and we got so lucky–someone had cancelled their room just minutes before, so we drove over and snatched that baby up & it was the BEST way to go. It was sooo nice to be able to go in and out all day, come back to the room for the littlest to nap, and to be able to bundle the kids up and just walk outside versus having to drive into town and deal with parking. So we stayed at the Evergreen Inn, it wasn’t the most upscale hotel, but it was clean and had a great location, we weren’t being picky, and it was perfect!
Where we ate:
South This place was SO good! It was Latin food, they had killer margaritas, a salsa bar, and they were kid friendly. It was the perfect place to escape the cold and warm up for dinner! We came in with a stroller, sleds, and all our snow gear and they were incredibly helpful and accommodating. The food was insanely delicious too!
Louie’s We went here for breakfast and they were fabulous! I got the biscuits and gravy, something Ive never even tried #beacausesoggybread, but for some reason it sounded perfect, and it really was! My husband ordered Louie’s Loaded Biscuit (just go read it!) it was insane and he loved it! The kids had the tastiest french toast, and I definitely recommend it!
Argonaut Espresso Bar Just as the name suggests, it was the perfect little pit stop first thing in the morning for some of the best coffee Ive tasted. Like ever. Its an outside, walk up bar, with the most amazing views. They have a little sitting area with heaters, and they also offer food if you want something quick. I loved this place!
The Danish Bakery Oh the BEST place to take a break from the hoursss of sledding that your kids are bound to do! (& don’t worry if you forget sleds, they have loads of little shops that sell them!) This little bakery made perfect hot chocolate and we tried quiet a few of their sweet treats too, which were alll major hits all around. This is a definite must try!
I hope you get the chance to make it up there, it’s totally worth the trip!
