The holiday countdown is on and if you’re looking to spread and receive some joy, festive towns are a great place to start. Mainly because one Washington town is a step above the rest when it comes to celebrating the holidays. Let’s see why Leavenworth is considered one of the most festive towns in the nation.

If you’ve visited Leavenworth before, you probably know exactly what makes it so festive – its Bavarian charm. The town is home to highly stylized architecture, the relaxing Post Hotel, sleigh rides, and a beloved holiday light display.

With all of the great holiday amenities, it’s no wonder the town made House Beautiful‘s top 30 list of the best Christmas towns in America.
