Partway between Wenatchee and Leavenworth, tucked between orchards and towering pines, is the charming, riverside town of Cashmere. With a quaint downtown that's as sweet as its signature candy shop, Cashmere is a must-see.
Spend some time in the trees and sunlight, riding the white waters of the Wenatchee River, zooming down Devil’s Gulch — known as one of the best mountain biking trails in the state — or hiking one of the many trails just outside of town.
Afterward, you can check out one of Cashmere’s many antique stores or take a tour (and snag some samples) at the Aplets & Cotlets candy factory. You can also catch the Chelan County Fair and the Wenatchee River Bluegrass Festival when they come through town.
At the Cashmere Museum & Pioneer Village, you can find one of the finest collections of Native American and archaeological artifacts in the Northwest. The Pioneer Village — a small section of land with 20 original pioneer buildings filled with authentic furniture and tools — is worth the trip on its own.
Looking for more? Don’t forget to take time to walk downtown or check out the 9/11 Spirit of America Memorial at Riverside Park.
