06/29/2021 | by jcollins | Local Area Outdoor Activities Water Activities

There are countless things to love about staying at Grandview on the Lake – from the private waterfront access to the deluxe suites. But nothing beats our central location. The Grandview sits just across the bridge from downtown Chelan, making it a convenient spot to post up during your vacation. Here are just a few of our favorite things that are walking distance from your unit at the Grandview!

Riverwalk Park

Across the street

One of our very favorite things about the Grandview is our proximity to Riverwalk Park, a one-mile loop around the Chelan River at the foot of the lake.

Enjoy a paved path that meanders by the shore and crosses over both bridges. Take an early morning stroll to hear birdsong and savor the still waters. Set out at sunset for stunning colors as the sun falls behind the mountains. Keep to the path along the water or take a slight detour to window shop and people watch in downtown Chelan.

Lake Chelan Museum

5-minute walk

Curious to learn more about the Lake Chelan Valley’s rich past? Want to know what Woodin Avenue looked like 50 years ago?

Delve deep into the valley’s history at the Chelan Museum at the corner of E. Woodin and S. Emerson to see how it has transformed into the beautiful, quaint town we love today. Browse photo archives, read old newspapers, and see memorabilia of local life and families with recreated home displays.

Lakeview Drive-In

9-minute walk

Is it really a trip to Lake Chelan without a stop at the Lakeview Drive-In? The Lake Chelan landmark and icon is just a half mile walk from your Grandview unit. Embark on a leisurely stroll across the bridge and through town on your way to your bucket of fries, burger baskets, and milkshakes. Find a picnic table and chow down or walk it back to your unit to enjoy on the balcony!

Pro-tip: avoid the lines by calling in your order ahead of time so it’s ready when you get there!

Chelan Evening Farmer's Market

6-minute walk

Take a Thursday afternoon stroll into downtown Chelan and find the Chelan Farmer’s Market on S. Emerson Street from 2pm-6pm.

Shop products like fresh produce, handmade jewelry, fresh-baked bread, and more from local farmers and artisans. The kids can enjoy an activity at the Kids’ Table or frolic in the green grass of Riverwalk Park. Befriend the locals and learn all about the rich agriculture of the Lake Chelan Valley! Wrap up with a pizza at Local Myth Pizza or take your produce haul back to your unit to cook up something fresh and delicious.
