Learn More About Wenatchee
Nestled into the foothills of the Cascade Range in central-North Washington State, Wenatchee is agriculturally based and teeming with arts and culture. The rural town, known as the Apple Capital of the World, is located about two-and-half hours outside of Seattle.
Surrounded by orchards, the most popular time to visit is the last week of April and the first week of May, when Wenatchee hosts the Washington State Apple Blossom Festival.
There’s also an abundance of wildlife, including on the Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail, which runs for ten miles along both banks of the Columbia River and through four city parks, at Wenatchee Confluence State Park, a 197-acre nature preserve, and at the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest, a four million-acre landscape.
Closer to town, the Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center shares stories of the region’s past; downtown, Pybus Public Market offers farm-to-table restaurants, seasonal produce, and handmade crafts.
