This Weekend’s Winthrop Rhythm & Blues Festival Is Only the Start of Fun in This Frontier Town [PHOTOS]

The “Winthrop Rhythm & Blues Festival” this weekend is just the excuse to explore and enjoy the towns and scenery along the way, as well as the the frontier town of Winthrop itself. For the sake of this post I’ll just mention a few spots actually in Winthrop and save Lake Chelan and other delightful points along the journey for a later time.

  • Golfers, check out “Bear Creek Golf Course.” This 9-hole alpine course (that’s my term because of the elevation changes) has dramatically different tee placements from the front to back nine. If you are in shape it’s still a challenging walk, but worth it!

TIP: Make your back nine Tee-Time when making the initial reservation. You don’t automatically get to play through.

Notice the tall pin as you approach from a lower fairway to this elevated green. Bear Creek is a great time as the back nine tees are usually quite dramatically altered from the front. (Lon Martin)
  • Old Schoolhouse Brewery” is great fun and delicious — both their on-site brewed beers and food. TIP: The pie-wedged shape of the building leads to a HUGE deck out back on the Chewuch River where music is played, especially during the Blues Festival weekend. So don’t get mesmerized by the taps and forget to venture further.
Stephanie is the manager of the “Old Schoolhouse Brewery” and I’m trying to smile even though I couldn’t get her to open at 11am on festival weekend, they open at noon? Don’t stop at the taps, take a look out back too. (Lon Martin)
