When to propose in Leavenworth, WA
Leavenworth is beautiful year-round! Unlike the wet Seattle area, Leavenworth goes through all four seasons and has about 300 days of sunshine on average. But each season will have its own unique vibe!
In spring you’ll have a lot of blooming flowers and the apple and pear blossoms will be just starting to pop off (which is just so gorgeous!).
Summer will bring more consistent warmth, with highs in the 80s and 90s. Summer also comes with some stunning sunsets!
Fall in Leavenworth is my favorite! If you’re into New England style fall foliage and autumn hues, then a fall proposal in Leavenworth might be for you. And September and early October temps can still be in the 70’s range!
Leavenworth in the winter is also a sight to see! The mountains surrounding the town are covered in snow and Christmas lights are usually on, making it look like the town is straight out of a snow globe or Hallmark holiday movie.
Where to propose in Leavenworth, WA
Leavenworth has a lot of great backdrops to choose from to pop the question! Here are some of my favorite, and most requested spots:
Downtown Leavenworth has such great character! It would make a great spot to propose, especially during the winter when the Christmas lights are on. It also makes it easy to go for a celebratory drink after.
If you continue walking past the downtown shops just a couple blocks, you’ll get to Waterfront Park. I love shooting here because there’s a couple different paths that follow along the river where you can get some awesome views for your proposal. It’s a pretty easy place to navigate, and there’s so many great spots throughout the park. I personally love how the entrance has a line of trees that just give off a romantic park feel.

Old Pipeline Trail
This trail is a just a few minutes from downtown Leavenworth and features a really cool bridge and more views of the Wenatchee River.
Lake Wenatchee State Park
If you drive about a half hour past Leavenworth, you’ll find Lake Wenatchee State Park. It’s definitely worth the short drive from downtown! PS- to get to this open beach spot you will want to take Lake Wenatchee State Park South Campground exit and follow the directions from there.
