Being a big-time boater, the winter can leave me missing the sunshine and the water I so frequently enjoy in summer! So, I decided to rack my brain and come up with some inspiration on how to still enjoy boating this winter, and get your family excited for next summer's boating season too!
What are your favorite things about a winery? Of course, great wines is #1, but what else contributes to your experience? For one, I love something super local and home-grown with a fantastic back story. I also love places with a great patio and entertainment. Also, it is a super plus to find a spot that practices sustainablility. Vin du Lac in Lake Chelan has all these features! I recently had the chance to tour Vin du Lac on a Chelan vacation weekend, and they are now on my must-visit list when wine tasting in the Chelan region.
It feels like there are a million wineries in Washington State, even more so concentrated around Lake Chelan. That is why I am always so excited to find a new one that I love! Succession Wines is on the Manson side of the lake and has both a fun atmosphere and fantastic wines alike. More details on my visit and why I think you should give them a try!
Looking for the perfect breakfast spot while visiting Lake Chelan? Blueberry Hills Farm in Manson, WA was a new find for us and now will be a breakfast/brunch staple when visiting sunny Lake Chelan!
Lake Chelan is an incredible place to enjoy your summer vacation! With a big beautiful lake and hot climates, it is no surprise that many people in Western Washington flock there.

Summer 2017 is officially going by way too fast! We have already had the chance to do some super fun activities such as BBQ'ing out with friends, dined out on the waterfront in Kirkland, took our daughter to her first movie in Woodinville, and hit a concert at Marymoor Park. We have trips planned to Roche Harbor and Lake Chelan, in addition to plans to hit up Bumbershoot. What are we missing, and what are you up to Seattle?
