    Great visit and very interesting the reindeer were great eating out of your hand and let you pet them. The folks there were awesome to deal with and teach you all about the reindeer

    This was a highlight of our trip in Leavenworth. Super fun and beautiful. We, myself and two teenage girls, booked an hour ride, but really the sleight ride itself was 20-25 minutes on and off the sleigh. Had I known this, I would have booked a longer ride. I highly recommend Leavenworth Sleigh Rides!

    We accessed the nature trails near the Blackbird Lodge and Post Hotel, just a short walk from there (crossing the bridge). The walk along the river front is very flat and wide, easy for any ages. Saw lots of dog walkers and bikers. Came across a doe.

    There is a man made pond that is not particularly clean. No wild life. The trails are very shaded, great for a hot summer day. We watched some standup paddleboarders come down the river. You could easily walk for hours here. Very nice break from all the shop browsing downtown Leavenworth.

    There is no parking nearby, but public parking is a short walk away. No entrance fee to the park.

    My wife used to go to Leavenworth when she was young...frequently. Her family had German ancestry. She had fond memories of Leavenworth, and stopping at the Squirrels Nest (restaurant) about 15-20 minutes west of the city. We stopped there and I heard stories of her experiences as a child. I had only driven through Leavenworth numerous times going to Wenatchee for business. We stayed at Mrs. Anderson's hotel in Leavenworth which has been there a long time. Small rooms, as they were then, but comfortable and within easy walking distance to the River Walk and all of downtown. Lights were going up for the winter Festival of Lights and we were able to enjoy them for the two nights we were there. Lots of places to each and lots of shops to walk through. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Summer, Fall and Winter are very different there, so pick the time that you like. Great short getaway from Seattle.

    This review talks about costs, parking, the shuttle, bathrooms, and of course the play. 8-)

    Costs: Excellent value to see a wonderfully acted play, "The Drowsy Chaperone," surrounded by nature with a live orchestra! For around $40, we got orchestra seats plus rented the soft cushions for $1 at the show. They definitely made the plastic seats comfortable and kept our legs from sticking to the chairs. Buy your seats early, since plays sell out.

    Parking: The website recommends you arrive no later than 7:15 pm for the 8:00 pm show especially if you need to use the shuttle to drop you off closer to the stage plus the parking lots gets crowded.

    We arrived for at Thursday 7:00 pm with a stop at the Leavenworth Community Farmers Market before. We got first row parking which was nice.

    Shuttle: There was a line of chairs for people waiting to board the shuttle. We took the shuttle (a few steps up) a short distance up the mountain. It dropped us off at the porta potty bathrooms where it was a short uphill distance and then steps to the outside theater.

    After showing your ticket, you could rent a seat cushion with $1 cash. The users showed your way to the seats.

    The Play: The play was a fun, well acted with singing and a great tap dance number. The humor kept me chuckling throughout the play. The live orchestra to the right of the stage sounded wonderful. The theater has a new sound system, and everything was clear and heard at a good listening volume. I was impressed with the "The Drowsy Chaperone" stage as seen in the picture. For an outdoor theater, I thought it was great and looked forward to seeing how they handled the set changes. I have been to plays at the Kennedy Center and Broadway. I enjoyed the quality of the theater at Leavenworth and would definitely see a play again.

    As it got later, the sound of the crickets singing and seeing the twinkling blanket of stars above the trees contributed to the wonderful atmosphere.

    Bathroom: During the 15 minute intermission, there was time to buy drinks or a snack or walk down to the porta potties. It has been a while since I have used one, and they are small! They had toilet paper and ability to flush if you use the foot pump on the floor. There was a hand washing station with running water outside.

    After the play, we walked down the hill to the car. There was a stringed lighting along the road to help light the way.

    Nice quiet place close by Leavenworth Wa. Winnie was good tasting. 25 dollars for three cups of wine. Bottle prices are ok.

    This is absolutely stunning! Clean bathrooms, lovely camping spots and you can rent water activity gear there! There’s a lot of people in the summer, but it’s still beautiful!

    Great atmosphere, great service, good vibes all around. The beer is fantastic, with something for everyone’s taste. The water bowls are clean and the water is crisp. Icicle Brewing is more that dog-friendly, they are dog family.

    It’s partially shaded, well maintained trail, and has pretty views on the way up. The summit view is the best in Leavenworth! There’s a lot of switchbacks! It was about 5 miles, over 1800ft elevation gain and took me 2.5 hrs, but I ran down a ways on the way back. My husband couldn’t make it to the top though. I would say it’s med-hard to hard. If you don’t regularly exercise (I sure don’t!), you can probably do it, but it’ll take a while and you’ll be sore the next day, but you’ll feel accomplished and see the summit views! Everyone I saw was young and/or in a good shape. There was a couple in there late 50s early 60s killing it, so don’t don’t yourself; it’s worth a try!

    Perfect with young children as you can access river from beach, rocks and the bridge allows full overhead view in both directions of river and mountains. Our favorite hike around Leavenworth and rated easy so don't miss. There are outhouses, too.
