Chelan is a hospitable little town situated on the shores of Lake Chelan. Summertime is the right time to be on the lake and thousands visit every year. However, don't overlook the beauty and enjoyment of visiting Lake Chelan in the spring.
Having recently moved to Yakima from the Seattle-Tacoma area, new resident Lorrie Brown says there is, actually, a LOT to do in the Yakima Valley and that the grass isn't always greener on the other side.
One of the best places to be during this heat spell, which looks as though it's going to continue all summer, is Lake Chelan. Frankly, as someone who grew up 30 miles from there, in Wenatchee, Chelan has been a treasured part of my life as far back as I can remember.
