Looking for a getaway that feels like worlds away, but is only a few hours away from the hustle and bustle of Western Washington? Look no further than Lake Chelan! 

The almost always sunny town of Chelan, at the southeast end of the lake, has a population of 4,000 that swells to 25,000 during the summer months. From award-winning wineries to a new installation that pushes you to "hang loose", there's something to do here for just about everybody.

Whether you're down to relax, play, drink local wine or all of the above, Lake Chelan makes for the perfect getaway. Check out Evening's itinerary below.
