Just over two hours east of Seattle, Leavenworth is a central Washington town known for its Bavarian village atmosphere and European charm. Whether visiting for the Oktoberfest, the Christmas Lighting Festival the first three week-ends in December or the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum, there is plenty of folksy fun to be had.
WA- Albany - Dog Rock - is a well-known local attraction; in 1921 the council decided it was dangerous and was going to blow it up! It caused so much upset to the people that a referendum was held with a vote of 409 to keep it and 207 to get rid of it, it stayed. http://albany.asn.au/dogrockalbany.html
