197 miles from Seattle
While the city of Seattle, Washington provides a seemingly endless variety of events and activities to enjoy, part of the fun of a visit this direction are the amazing destinations that lie in close proximity to major centers of business, commerce, and tourism. One incredible example that shouldn’t be missed if you have time for a day trip while you’re here is the destination of Twisp. Just over 100 miles outside of Seattle, this town is known as the heart of Methow Valley and is a scenic escape that provides just the right amount of inspiration.
Natural Beauty Awaits
While Twisp is home to just over 900 year-round residents, that count officially makes it the largest town that the Methow Valley hosts. Therefore, it maintains the title of the heart of all the fun to be had in this beautiful region. Visitors come year-round to Twisp to enjoy a day or even a longer stay exploring the charm, scenery, and comfort of the valley.
What to Explore with a Heart for Art
Twisp is home to a large number of art galleries which draws in visitors with a passion for artistic inspiration. For those who love to browse a variety of creative options, Twisp hosts several print art studios as well as jewelry shops when you’re looking for a one of a kind hand-crafted souvenir. The artistic talent of Twisp extends to the stage and those interested in enjoying a local performance will want to be sure to check the event calendar at the Merc Playhouse.
When you’re in the mood for a picnic in the park on a beautiful day in Twisp, find a shady spot at Twisp Park which is located riverside downtown. This is also a great starting point for those that intend to spend their day out on the many nearby trails taking in captivating sights of the Cascades and Sawtooth Mountains. If you’re visiting Twisp between the months of April and October, be sure to set aside a Saturday morning for a visit to the Methow Valley Farmers Market which runs from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm. Not only is this one of the longest standing farmers markets in Washington but purchasing fresh and local fare is a great way to support the Twisp and entire Methow Valley economy.
