Indoor Activities for Colder Weather

10/05/2021 | by Josh Collins | Local Area

Fall is one of the most beautiful seasons of the year, especially when we get a little autumn rain that makes our red, orange, and yellow trees pop!

During October, sunshine, precipitation, wind, or even snow are bound to occur in Lake Chelan. The weather, however, should never make or break your trip! So to help you keep the fun going, we have put together a quick list of top indoor activities to do in the Valley.

Wine Tasting

With over 30 wineries in the valley, you will have no shortage of places to explore during your stay. Crush, an exceptional season for winemakers, also occurs throughout October. For those unfamiliar, Crush is the term used to describe the harvesting, crushing, and eventually bottling of this year’s crop of grapes. New releases, half-case or full case sales, and events such as the Lake Chelan Crush Festival await!
