Leavenworth – quite the getaway.

Groupon Getaways is a travel service that puts together travel deals in collaboration with Expedia.  Sometimes their deals are really great and can come in at as much as 60% off.  I received an email from Groupon today.  The subject line said:

San Diego | Las Vegas | Chicago | Cancun | Leavenworth

Leavenworth??  Since when has that been an exciting vacation destination?  Leavenworth is the home of a well-known federal prison and it is said that doing federal time is much easier than time in a state prison (ask Martha), so maybe Leavenworth is a “vacation destination” in some sense of the phrase.  But I have been really good this week – I have broken no laws – state, federal, or of nature…why did Groupon send me that email?

So after contemplating for several minutes what in the world I could have done that would make the folks at Groupon think a vacation in Leavenworth was up my alley, I opened the email.

Yeah…well…it was Leavenworth alright…Leavenworth, Washington.

Apparently Leavenworth, Washington has Adventure Inn.

True, Leavenworth Kansas, likely has adventure too, but it doesn’t look like this.  And while you may pay for a trip to experience Leavenworth, Washington, you are typically paying for something you did when you make a trip to Leavenworth, Kansas.

So if you want to experience Leavenworth, Washington - Groupon has a deal for you.   As for me, I think I’ll have to lean toward Cancun – I am not adventurous enough for any Leavenworth getaway.  ;-)

I teach at NDSU...but I remain a student of life with all the enthusiasm that entails. My favorite saying is, "Sometimes you have to take the leap and build your wings on the way down." In the new forty that is what I am doing...building my wings.

    Hmmm….bugs and dirt? Or, 4 star hotel with fancy umbrella drinks? Pack your bags we’re going to Cancun! LOL!

    Leavenworth, WA is one of the most scenic, beautiful spots in the northwest. It was a dying logging community until one of WA college’s engineers developed a plan to liken the town to a Bavarian Village. Hence, a destination attraction was made! The town is nestled in spectacular mountains next to the crystal clear flowing Icicle River. Cancun–where one can become headless or Leavenworth–pack my bags, I’m headed to Leavenworth!
