Things to do

Slides, wines, and ski slopes in Chelan

Chelan is a real chameleon of a getaway. In the summertime, folk flock to splash in the cool mountain waters of Lake Chelan State Park, or to whizz down the whirling water rides of Slidewaters _ the largest waterpark in North Central Washington. Fall is high time for tasting trips through the local wineries, with popping corks heard from the Tsillan Cellars to the Fielding Hills. And when the snows come, it's all about waxing down the skis, hitting the pistes, and leaving behind your cozy Chelan vacation rentals for the alpine slopes of Echo Ridge.


Taste the Washington wilderness in Chelan

Chelan promises plenty for the budding outdoors adventurer. Book a Chelan vacation rental in the woods that line the Wenatchee National Forest if you came here for hiking or overnight camping excursions into bear country. Or, look for the handsome lodges on the lakeside if you came for boating trips and water parks and long days of lazing on the rocky beaches. Wine tasting tours on two wheels also exist for the adults, while something more extreme _ sky diving, helicopter flyovers of the Cascades _ is on the menu for any adrenaline junkies.


Chelan never stops

Chelan's place on the edge of the North Cascades means it's got plenty up its sleeve both summer and winter. Take the colder months between December and March, which is when Chelan vacation rentals fill up with snow boarders and skiers ready for the pistes of Echo Ridge and the other alpine resorts of the region. Or, consider coming between May and August for the drier days and the sun. That's high time for hiking in the Wenatchee National Forest, for wild swimming, or hitting the attractions of Slidewaters.
