A Bite of Bavaria

2014-08-31 17.27.52-2 This past weekend I took a day trip to Leavenworth, WA a Bavarian themed tourist town about two hours away from Seattle. When I heard it was a Bavarian town I figured it was a location settled by immigrants from  southeast Germany founded and settled the town, which still retains that culture today, but I was pretty far off. Leavenworth was just a former railroad town until it was transformed into the Bavarian themed tourist trap in the 1960’s to revitalize the towns economy. Though not genuine the effort seems to have paid off as the little village was full off people this weekend.
