3.     Activities

Known for its desert climate, the Tri-Cities sun-drenched weather makes for a fun retreat for world-class recreation.  Hike scenic trails, enjoy water sports like water skiing , paddling or kayak excursions.  And for the extreme athlete, the IRONMAN 70.3 will be taking place in September.  There's something for everyone! 

Lake Chelan

1.     Activities

The beautiful 50.5-mile long lake provides plenty of opportunity to enjoy water-skiing, jet-skiing, parasailing, kayaking, canoeing, rowing, tubing and cruising.  It’s no wonder Lake Chelan is deemed “boater’s paradise”.  In addition, discover numerous smaller lakes and waterways nearby. Just four miles east lies the Columbia River; a popular spot for windsurfers and sailboats, especially up lake in the Lucerne Basin and near Stehekin, where the winds are the most consistent.

2.     Lodging

Lake Chelan Valley offers a variety of lodging options, including resorts and condos, family hotels, quaint B&Bs, luxurious homes, and secluded cabins.  There are multiple camping options; whether you prefer the comfort of an RV, the adventure of boating directly into a site or backcountry camping along the upper basin.  If you prefer something more upscale, check out the The Lookout; a recent development with classically designed homes and sweeping lake views.

3.     Wine Tasting

Chelan has distinctive soil and amazing summertime weather which has drawn world-class winemakers who are crafting award-winning vintages.  The first production vineyards were planted in 1998 and in 2000, the Kludt Family licensed and bonded the first winery in Chelan County.  As of today, you can enjoy 40+ wineries, and choose your ambience - from intimate tasting rooms to estate wineries with restaurants; hip downtown spots or tasting rooms nestled in the hills.
