All the ladies out there can rejoice with a holiday made especially for them – Galentine’s Day! Typically celebrated on February 13th, Galentine’s Day celebrates the beauty of female friendship and encourages everyone to get together with their special gal pals.
Every year, people become more and more creative with how they spend this holiday. You can choose to brunch it with your lovely lady friends, have a night out, or stay in for some Netflix and wine. Personally, we think the best way to celebrate Galentine’s Day is with a weekend getaway to Lake Chelan. Don’t have you convinced yet? Read below for our recommendations for a special and fun mini-vacay with your best girls.
Activities + Adventures
Shop Downtown Chelan
With over 30 wineries available in the Lake Chelan Valley, great wine abounds. We recommend booking Lakeside Limousine to keep the transportation worry-free. The month of February features the Month of Love, so you will encounter delicious wine and chocolate pairings at many area tasting rooms. One of our favorites is Rio Vista Wines. All you need is the GALS21 promo code for a free wine tasting and a welcome bottle of wine with your stay during the Month of Love. Don’t forget, book your stay with the promo code LOVE21 and we’ll provide you with a welcome bottle of wine and a bouquet of flowers, all through the month of February.
With over 26 miles of trails for snowshoers and cross country skiers at Echo Ridge in addition to the Echo Valley Ski Hill, there are plenty of options for snow enthusiasts. Want to stay closer to the Grandview? Grab some hot chocolate at The Vogue, buy some sleds at The Variety Store and wander over to Don Morse Park for some sledding hill action.
The month of love this year has us approaching dining and restaurants a little differently this year, but there are still some delicious options for you to indulge on your Galentine’s trip.
These are not your standard pies. Local Myth serves up delicious hand-crafted artisan pizza and fresh salads every day. This is a lively casual spot with a great local wine and beer list too. There is some limited outdoor seating but all menu items are available for takeway as well.
Marcela’s is a Mexican restaurant cooking up family recipes made with the freshest ingredients, homemade tortillas, and Lake Chelan Valley’s best margaritas. Only offering takeout at this time, order some carne asada and jalapeno splash margaritas and thank us later.
Offering a family style takeout menu, this is a great way to feed the whole group as Andante has dinner options for groups of all sizes. With homemade recipes like Chicken Parmesan and their signature Fire Pasta with Chicken, we think this is the perfect meal to take home, open a bottle of wine, and stream your favorite romcom.
Let’s face it, all successful Galentine’s weekends need brunch. Here in Chelan, we understand good brunch is a vacation staple, so we’ve got some hot spots to share with you.
With a modified menu this winter, Riverwalk Café is serving up their signature pastries to-go on the weekends. You need to get your hands on their homemade cinnamon rolls and sticky buns. We seriously can’t tell you how life-changing these are…you just to try some and find out for yourself! Also, we recommend you call a day or two in advance to place your order to guarantee there are enough for you and all your gal pals.
A Chelan newcomer in 2020, Goldie’s has done nothing but impress since it’s grand opening. Serving up delectable smoothies, acai bowls, etc. you’ll love getting your day started with a fresh and healthy treat.
