Looking for a fun way to celebrate the month of love but can only spare a quick weekend? Lake Chelan is centrally located, making it about a short, several hour drive from every part of the state and the perfect place for a quick getaway. We’ve collected a list of our favorite things to do around the valley so you can head straight to the fun and optimize the time you are here!
Your trip would not be complete without a trip to the Winemaker’s Grill for dinner. Every night, a new fresh sheet is presented that includes items such as a prime rib, fried chicken, prawns, a variety of soups, and much more. You can find staple items on their daily menu as well. Insider’s secret: get the Chicken Piccata! The atmosphere is absolutely romantic, and it’s a local favorite.
The Chelan River Trail is a 3 mile plus roundtrip walk that overlooks the Chelan Dam and the Chelan River. Travel from the Riverwalk Loop Trail in downtown Chelan to Reach 1 of the Chelan River – the uppermost section of the 4-mile river that flows down to join the Columbia River and Chelan Falls. Spend the day outdoors and absorb all that the valley has to offer!
Find romance, live music, wine, and chocolate pairings throughout the month of February as the Lake Chelan Valley celebrates the Month of Love! While each winery takes its unique spin, the valley will be packed to the brim with exquisite chocolates, desserts, and other dazzling treats. You will also find live music spattered around the lake at several participating wineries. Chocolate, wine and live music equal a good time!
Finally, take a chance and win big! If you’ve never been, the Mill Bay Casino is a fun spot to spend the night with your significant other and is located on the outskirts of Manson, right off the highway. Here you will find slots, tables, and betting, but you will also find a full-service bar and a restaurant.
