Things To Do In Wenatchee
Finding things to do in Wenatchee is not a hard task. A picturesque town right in the middle of Washington State, it has enough natural beauty and local attraction to draw visitors from all over the state, but its central location also makes it a the perfect base camp from which to explore all of Chelan County and central Washington. Residents can be proud to call Wenatchee their home.
These lovely gardens are the result of the vision of Herman Ohme. He and his wife Ruth created the Ohme Gardens as a private oasis just a few minutes north of Wenatchee. The Gardens were opened to the public due to popular demand and are now a featured tourist attraction in the area.
Watch the video below for a virtual tour of the gardens, or find out more about this nationally acclaimed garden by reading our blog post here.[divider_padding] [divider_padding]
Pybus Public Market
The Pybus Public Market is an awesome collection of the best produce that Wenatchee and the surrounding communities have to offer. This is the farmers market to end all farmers markets. Newly renovated in the last decade, the building bursts with character, from the exposed rafters to the restored rail line complete with a modified flatcar that runs on the rails. The atmosphere is always bustling on Saturdays and Wednesday and live music from local artists is usually added to the mix.[divider_padding]
Wenatchee Riverfront Park
The Wenatchee Riverfront Park is a popular recreation spot along the Columbia River in the heart of Wenatchee. Swings for the kids, boat trailer parking and boat launch and a riverfront trail that is more than a mile long all serve to make this a great park for all kinds of activities.

Apple Capital Loop Trail
Proudly claiming the title of the “Longest Loop Trail in Washington” this 10 mile trail is a favorite of walkers, joggers and bicyclists. Even when there is snow on the ground, snowshoers and cross-country skiers have at least ten miles of clear trail to use. Add in great views from the shoreline of the Columbia River along with footbridges and multiple parks along the way, this is a trail you’ll want to check out!
