RV Living: Leavenworth Washington 2019
RV Living: Leavenworth Washington 2019. This video is about our trip to the small Bavarian themed town of Leavenworth Washington which is located in the beautiful Cascade Mountain Range. We spend a full week exploring everything that Leavenworth Washington and the surrounded cascade mountains had to offer. We stayed at the Thousand Trails RV park which is located about 30 minutes north of the town of Leavenworth Washington. We explored multiple rv camping areas in order to give you a good understanding of where to stay if you plan to travel to this area of the Country. We had a chance to take a dip in their lakes and rivers and as well as a few beautiful hikes.
A sawmill and a healthy logging industry eventually fell apart when the Great Northern Railway Company pulled out of Leavenworth. The re-routing of the railroad and the subsequent closure of the sawmill sadly converted the town from a bustling, thriving hub of commerce into a hollow, empty community. For more than thirty years, Leavenworth lived on the brink of extinction.
But in the early 1960’s, everything changed. In a last-chance effort to turn their precarious situation around, the leaders of the community decided to change Leavenworth’s appearance, hoping to bring tourism into the area. Using the beautiful backdrop of the surrounding Alpine hills to their advantage, the town agreed to remodel their hamlet in the form of a Bavarian village.
Hoping to create more than a mere facelift, the entire community rallied to create the illusion of Bavaria in the middle of Washington State. Besides the complete renovation of the downtown area, community members worked to begin a series of festivals. The Autumn Leaf Festival, Maifest, and the extremely popular Christmas Lighting Ceremony were the first of many attractions Leavenworth offered to passers-by.
The new plan worked. Ever since the change to a Bavarian motif, Leavenworth has become a pillar of the tourism industry in the Pacific Northwest. Today, close to two million tourists come to Leavenworth each year, each visitor finding their own individual love affair with the community. The story is a landmark case of human spirit: The people of Leavenworth not only survived their most critical hour, they endured.
Leavenworth's transformation into a theme town was inspired, and assisted, by Solvang, California. Later, the Washington town of Winthrop followed Leavenworth's example and adopted a Western town theme.
Good Morning America went too Leavenworth for Holiday Gifts for the Globe where GMA helped light up the town for the Christmas Holiday. Leavenworth was also named the Ultimate Holiday Town USA by A&E.
Leavenworth is home to the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum, which opened in 1995 and contains more than 5,000 nutcrackers dating from prehistoric to modern. Leavenworth hosts an annual Oktoberfest celebration.

Okanogen-Wenatchee National Forest Over The Top
John Williams is your host for an accessible tour of the upper Methow Valley in the Okanogen-Wenatchee National Forest. This film was shot before the devestating fire that destroyed so many acres, homes, and lives, of this scenic land. The communities will prosper again, and so will the forests, but the lives of so many were changed over the weeks and months of the summer of 2015. We were in the area just two weeks before the fire caused so much devestation, and were proud to be able to meet some of the young fire fighters training near Winthrop Washington for what would be these fateful days. We dedicate this Accessible Adventure In The Pacific Northwest, to the heroic fire fighters of the US Forest Service, their families, and communities.
