Review of Wenatchee, Washington

Love this place!!!
Star Rating - 2/15/2017
I grew up in Seattle and spend most of my life there. As much as I love the Seattle area I've always felt the need to leave my home town to explore new horizons. Boulder, CO had always held a special place in my heart so we spend some time considering moving to Colorado. But alas, the mountains of Washington, Canada, Oregon and beyond had our hearts set in staying in Washington. With the attraction of significantly more sun, less rainy days and an active outdoorsy lifestyle at heart, Wenatchee really fit the bill for us. The golden sage hills and eastern slopes of the Cascades were the perfect backdrop to a lifestyle that fit our needs and interests. Now we can hike/climb/backpack to our hearts content without being bombarded by rain storm after rain storm and with a second home/cabin at Lake Wenatchee live the best of both worlds, the mountain wilderness life close to some of the most beautiful high mountains in Washington, no more than 30 minutes access from the cute town of Leavenworth and the gorgeous open plains and sunny deserts of Eastern Washington. The economy is growing and thriving with an increase in the number of entrepreneurs over the past decade who see the cities potential and beauty. Can't imagine why anyone would not love it as much as we do!!! Paradise!
