Thawing out: It's time to head east of mountains
By CARY ORDWAY
In a year when the snow was piled high and sometimes patience came up a little short, a lot of Washington residents are only too happy to bid adieu to the Winter of 15-16. Spring is here.

And that means it's a good time to travel to North Central Washington, where you'll find one of the best menus you'll find anywhere in the country for fun travel adventures -- an incredible smorgasboard of fun towns, events, getaways and outdoor recreation.

You probably already know that there is amazing mountain scenery and Alpine charm in Leavenworth. And you already know that Lake Chelan, with its 55 miles of water and mountain backdrops, has the look and feel, in places, of a European fjiord. Those are easy calls, and both areas beckon tourists from the entire Pacific Northwest and beyond.

But there are many other fun options you might not have heard about. The city of Wenatchee is a good base of operations for your vacation, and here are a few NCW getaway options to consider:

The Methow Valley is gorgeous throughout the year and less than two hours from Wenatchee. That makes the Twisp River Suites a great option because of its fun and scenic location along the river. It could be considered a hidden gem.
