The One Washington Town Everyone Must Visit This Fall
It’s going to be a beautiful autumn here in Washington, and our lively cities and small towns are getting geared up for all the fall festivals and events to come. But if you only have time to visit one spot in the state this season, we highly recommend checking out Winthrop and the Methow Valley. Thankfully the summer’s wildfires didn’t touch the town, and all roads in the area are open once again.
First, let's talk about how incredibly gorgeous the Methow Valley is this time of year.
This photo was taken a few days ago, and it's only going to get prettier.
And the town of Winthrop itself is undeniably charming.
You'll feel like you've stepped straight into the Old West.
On Friday and Saturday nights, you can catch live music at the Old Schoolhouse Brewery.
The food, beer, and music are all excellent here, so if you're into any of those things, you'll love this place.
Unlike many other towns in Washington that host numerous fall festivals, Winthrop stays quiet and peaceful.
Fall festivals are wonderful, but if you're looking for an uncrowded escape where you can enjoy the fall foliage in peace, this is your place.
The fall colors here are amazing.
The hiking trails near Winthrop are phenomenal, especially this time of year.
This is a scene from the 3-mile Cedar Falls Trail, an easy hike for all skill levels.
While you're there, take some time to learn about the local history.
The Winthrop Twin Lakes Loop is a beautiful drive or hike that covers the best ground.
Come see why this beautiful place has been nationally recognized as one of the best spots to see fall colors.
The roads to Winthrop can get treacherous in winter and sometimes close, so plan your visit before the first snowfall if you can.
Winthrop is definitely amazing in the fall. But if you only have one day to get away, try one of these
beautiful destinations in Washington.
