Welcome to the wild west! When you visit Winthrop Washington you are transported back in time to 1890. Winthrop’s downtown wooden boardwalk leads you to local shops, restaurants and even Washington State’s first legal saloon. Stop in for a drink!
If you love the outdoors Winthrop is paradise for your soul. Winthrop is a mecca for outdoor year-round outdoor activities including home of the nation’s largest cross-country ski trail system with over 120 miles of perfectly groomed trails.
