It's true: Bavarian-themed Leavenworth is super cheesy. But if you look beyond the facades, this mountain town about two hours from Seattle is also super delicious, with plenty of worthwhile restaurants and German-style biergartens to patronize. From open-air bratwurst-and-beer spots where you can comfortably wear your muddy hiking pants, to more dressed-up affairs, Leavenworth has it all.
Next time you're in Leavenworth to hike, raft, visit the Nutcracker Museum, or get drunk and float down the Wenatchee River in a tube, use this guide to help cut through the sensory overload that is the core of downtown's many shops and restaurants.
