Remember when you were little, and you were enthralled with snow globes? A trip to Leavenworth is about as close to the real thing as you're going to get. Nestled on the Eastern cusp of the Cascades, the Bavarian Village transforms when the snow flies, turning itself into the ultimate holiday town. Hundreds of thousands of twinkling lights, carolers, cocoa, kids sledding, the horse-drawn carriage...it is enough to put any snow globe to shame. Want to make some memories with the family? Treat yourself to a winter experience that you will never forget!
