If You Can Only Take One Day trip In Washington This Winter, Visit This Charming Town

Many people might think of Winthrop, Washington’s Old West town, as a summer destination. And since part of the North Cascade Highway closes for the winter, it does seem like it would become a ghost town until spring. But there’s more than one way to get to Winthrop, and those that do will find a beautiful winter wonderland waiting for them. The truth is, winter is the best time to explore this area.
