Chelan County Museum and Pioneer Village

Museum on the history of Chelan county.

Reviewed By travelsbyrail - Prescott, Arizona

The museum building has lots of native american and local history artifacts. The exhibits are all done very well. Downstairs has, even more, exhibits - some dioramas and rock of the area. But don't spend all your time indoors. The pioneer village has examples of nearly every type of store & living quarters that would have existed in the 1800's. Some of the description are a bit back in the room and without lighting are hard to read. A caboose and a railroad section house houses more railroad history. Well worth the time.

We love River Recreation. Never did a level III+ & were apprehensive but the instruction are clear & we were taught valuable safety instructions. We did the Nooksack on it's last run for the season. Book early since the window of opportunity is slim with the River.

My family of 4 totally enjoyed our white water rafting experience with Deaana and Spencer! They were a hoot and we enjoyed getting to know them. They were totally experienced and we all felt completely comfortable with them. While Spencer showed all his tricks in the kayak, Deanna guided us down the Wanatchee River giving us facts about the area and giving us the best experience! Thanks guys! This Texas bunch had a fun time!

Reviewed By Sandra G

Great place to visit. Free samples of the delicious candies are offered in the store and you can get a tour of the candy making. Even if you don't do the tour there are windows where you can watch the employees picking the candies off the conveyor belt, placing them in the boxes and placing the lids on the boxes. Lots of yummy stuff to buy in the store!

Ohme Gardens

A scenic garden with stone walkways and spectacular mountain views and water features. The gardens were started in 1929 by Herman and Ruth Ohme and first open to the public in 1939. Enjoy a refreshing respite at this amazing evergreen oasis in the heart of Washington State. Nearly a mile of natural stone pathways traverses the hillside gardens, ushering you past breathtaking panoramic views, towering cedars and firs, lush foliage, mesmerizing waterfalls and tranquil pools. Stone benches located throughout the grounds provide ample opportunities to savor the beauty of Ohme Gardens. The average time to tour the Gardens is one hour. Visitors come back time and time again to view the ever changing vegetation in the gardens.

I dragged some coworker here when it was over 100 degrees. I have been here a few times over the past 40 years. It has grown up quite a bit. A surprising oasis of green with nice views out over Wenatchee and the Columbia River

Cashmere Cider Mill

Reviewed By SandKTacoma - Tacoma, WA

We rode our bikes out to the Cider Mill and we were the only ones there. We got to sample some incredible ciders and then paid $3 per person to try the hard ciders. They were good as well. We will go back with a car to buy some cider! They are also going to start offering painting sessions - "Paint and Sip" which sound like fun.

Alpine Adventures, Wenatchee River Rafting

Reviewed By Zipster16 - Seattle

On July 6th, my family was visiting from Illinois and I wanted to give them an adventure unique to Washington state. Because Riverside Park in Cashmere, the meeting location, was teeming with hundreds of people and numerous raft companies, I feared we were going to have a "cattle-car" river trip. When we finally located Alpine Adventures' crew, we were pleased to find out that our 2pm launch had only 12 people in two rafts. Our family of 6 were all in one raft.

Our guide, Scott, started off by seating us the best way to balance the paddle power on both sides. I really appreciated Scott's appraisal of our capabilities before we launched into the current. He had us perform some of his commands, recognized that we were strong paddlers (no "lilly dippers", as he said), willing to coordinate with one another and quick to respond to his commands. This meant he could take us through waves where other more tentative groups couldn't safely maneuver. As we progressed down the river and he gained more information about our abilities, he seemed to let us do more fun maneuvers, but always kept safety first.

We made a nice lunch stop on a shady gravel bar. Other raft groups passed while we lunched and we noted the large number of rafts in many groups; as well as, some rafts with more then 6 people, which meant that some had to sit in the middle instead of being able to paddle. In these other groups, there seemed to be a number of raft guides struggling to navigate. Scott told us that group size & number of rafts in an Alpine Adventures trip are smaller than the other companies. Orion and BlueSky were a couple of the companies that I noticed with large groups of people who didn't appear to know each other. Speaking for ourselves, we enjoyed our smaller group and the individual attention.

It seems that intensity of any group's river experience with Alpine Adventures will depend on the guide's assessment of the group's capabilities. A trip will probably depend on the least comfortable, least capable person in the group, along with the ability of the group to work as a unit. This approach gave me confidence in this company.

While we were having lunch another Alpine Adventures group with 6-7 rafts also went by. Scott explained that Alpine Adventures also offers a trip in which people get picked up in the Seattle area, have a river trip, followed by a BBQ at a restaurant and then shuttled back to Seattle. Hence, you can choose multiple ways to go on an Alpine Adventures trip.
