This summer marks two full years of Chukar Cherries in Leavenworth, Washington! As the third tasting room for Chukar Cherries, we are excited to share a taste of the Best of Nature, Best of Chocolate® along with a few insiders’ tips on what to do in Leavenworth on your next visit.
Leavenworth has four seasons of fun and adventure, with summer offering a ton of options. From relaxing to physically challenging, there are activities for everyone.
My personal favorite summer activity is camping. With dozens of gorgeous campgrounds in the area and warm summer nights, Leavenworth is the perfect part of Washington State to pitch a tent. There are 700 miles of Forest Service hiking trails to be explored. Just remember to pack something to keep your energy up. Chukar Cherries’ fruit & nut energy mixes are a smart, tasty, all natural addition to any camping, hiking, or climbing trip.
As a member of the band Jipsea Party, employee Siri Rose can be found singing with her band at local outdoor venues throughout the summer. She personally enjoys catching an evening performance by The Hoyer Brothers at the Munchen Haus after checking out the Leavenworth Community Farmers Market (held 4-8pm every Thursday at Lions Gate Park through mid-October), or floating the Wenatchee River.
Employee Jessica Ramsey has been local to the area for over eleven years. As a mother of two, she enjoys spending summer days playing and swimming at Blackbird Island with her kids. Blackbird Island is just blocks away from Chukar Cherries. She also loves gathering friends together and floating down the Wenatchee River from Icicle Bridge to Blackbird Island, followed by BBQ and a cool beer. Here is her Chipotle Shredded Chicken recipe.
