Before you leave for Leavenworth, especially in winter, always check the weather and pass conditions and the extended forecast. Click on our weather "bug" below to get more information.
Have a list before leaving so you don't forget anything. One year when Mr. Accidental Bavarian was growing up, we went on a camping trip and forgot the suitcases with the clothes, so we were washing our unmentionables in the public bathroom sink.
Go to some of your favorite Leavenworth hotels and business websites and see if they have any specials that week. A great way to find out about specials is to sign up for the mailing lists from your favorite places. One of the hotels currently has a spring special where you can upgrade from a normal room to a suite for the same price (Sunday through Thursdays), but only for newsletter subscribers.
Make sure your AAA membership is current. It'd be a bummer to run out of gas on your way to your favorite place.
Plan some down time. Don't try to do too much. We've found that we kind of get in our heads "We don't know how soon we'll be back", so try to do everything. We end up leaving very tired. The last time in Leavenworth, we spent a little time in town, then drove around the area taking in God's creation, then back to town for a while, then to the hotel to rest. We ended up having a much more relaxed time.
Finally, check out what's going on in town; there's always something. By the way, Accidental Bavarian has a great events calendar.
