Accidental Bavarian Announces Leavenworthy Award

We wanted to find a way to reward people or businesses who show the true spirit of Leavenworth. We have deemed them "Leavenworthy". It is not an award you can apply for, it must be earned. When we come across people or businesses we think have gone above and beyond, we will list them on our website and provide them with a picture and link they can use on their website to advertise that we consider them Leavenworthy.

We were in Leavenworth last week for Maifest and we found a business we consider Leavenworthy.

Our first Leavenworthy award goes to SOUTH restaurant. SOUTH provides free wifi 24 hours a day and a couple benches outside the restaurant to sit on while you check your Email and Facebook. While we were in town for Maifest, our hotel didn't have wifi access, so early morning and at end of day, you could find us sitting with our Macbook outside of SOUTH catching up. Oh, and we had a great lunch there on Sunday... loved the mole sauce and the pork tacos.

Congratulations to SOUTH, our very first Leavenworthy award winner.

Accidental Bavarian in Leavenworth to Speak at Bavarian Business Association

The Accidental Bavarian will be in Leavenworth June 1 to talk to the Bavarian Business Association meeting at 8:00 AM at King Ludwig's restaurant. We'll be talking about how you can use your website to increase business or walk-in traffic. Please come and meet us.

Update Your Information

We want to make sure the information we have on this website is as complete as possible and provides value for potential tourists who come to the site and for you as well. For that we need your help.

Please come to Accidental Bavarian and check the information we have on you and the link to your site. We have included links for every business we have found in Leavenworth (and we found over 600!). If we have any incorrect information, or if you feel we have categorized your business incorrectly, please go to our "Local Vendors" link at the bottom of each page and send us an EMail. And if you have suggestions for future additions to the website, please let us know that as well.

Please Link to Us

We love Leavenworth and want to do our part to encourage people to visit. We created Accidental Bavarian to look at Leavenworth from a tourist's perspective. We want promote tourism in Leavenworth by providing travelers information they need to plan a fun-filled, happy experience in the Northwest's Little Bavaria. We currently do this as a hobby and are not backed by any group of businesses in Leavenworth. We offer independent reviews and provide our own opinions.

We'd like to encourage you to link your website to ours. Please click here for sample code you can include on your website to provide a link.

We also provide website development. Please contact us if you need to update your website or if you want us to create a new website for you.

Future Direction for Accidental Bavarian

As we continue to develop the site, we intend to include sections that will be of value to the Leavenworth community as well. You can see where some of this may be going by looking under our "Live" menu.

One future improvement we hope to add is a virtual walkthrough of the town, so people can click on a building and "see inside" it as they plan their trip... or if they are just homesick for their favorite places. We've already talked to some of you on a previous trip and gotten interior pictures. We'll let you know when that is ready to go.

In the future, we may have advertising on the site. For now, we are providing links from our site to yours. We have also provided tourist-based articles that include businesses, organizations or websites we found interesting. There are over 600 businesses or organizations we've identified so far that we have in our database and have made available on-line. We were just astounded by the number. The site will continue to expand as we go and we hope to be a part of Leavenworth for some time to come.

Pass It On

While we have over 600 businesses in our database, we have only found Email addresses for about half of them. Please pass this Email on to anyone who has not received it and encourage them to Email us with updated information about their business.

So Fritzi and Mitzi, the Accidental Bavarians, say "Herzlich Willkommen, Leavenworth!"
