The Wildest of the West. . . Winthrop, Washington!

I never would have guessed that there's a completely adorable little Wild West town only three hours away from where I live. As part of our North Cascades National Park road trip, we headed to Winthrop for some lunch and sight-seeing. I was totally amazed by how cool this place is!
It reminded me of Frontierland at Disneyland. Except it's a real town!!!

There were tons of super cute shops! Of course most of them weren't at ALL kid-friendly (lots of breakables), so we didn't spend much time in them. But Kirsten wanted to look inside each one.
We had a great lunch with the locals at Three-Fingered Jack's Saloon. It's the oldest original saloon in the state!

I think these two have been eating there for a long time. Kirsten was excited to see real live cowboys!

After lunch we found some amazing homemade ice cream at an old-fashioned candy store. The shop had a great outdoor deck, and the weather was perfect! We had such a great time there!

I loved this outdoor ice cream bar, with the western saddles for seats!
There aren't many things I love more than exploring new places with my favorite people! It's the spice of life!


  1. Those saddle seats are ADORABLE!!!! What a fun town!

  2. Looks like a really neat town! I wish we lived closer, so we could try it out too!


Comments make me happy :)
