According to architecturaldigest.com, Leavenworth ranks #36 out of the top 100 winter destinations in their survey. I was going to be a little upset with the ranking until I noticed the competition and you see Aspen and Vail Colorado as the top places to escape to in the winter.

I'll concede the victory...for now but 36th out of 100 is a great compliment to our little Leavenworth town and it should be one of those destinations added to your road trip itinerary for this holiday season.
