Leavenworth's holiday lights are a big draw for visitors. But the town retains its winter charm well past the holidays.

We all have those people who are impossible to buy holiday gifts for.

“I’m in that situation right now,” said KNKX travel expert Matthew Brumley. “I’m missing a couple key presents for a couple key people in my life – one of them being my wife.” (She knows.)

So instead of running to the mall and getting something, Brumley is going to get his wife “somewhere” for Christmas this year. 

“Right now, I’m looking at resorts for a massage and a long weekend,” he said. “I think that’s something that would be a great shared experience – where we can just go to a beautiful place, like Sun Mountain or Sleeping Lady or Alderbrook.

There are lots of options nearby that can be an easy long weekend. And going in January or February gives you time to plan and something to look forward to.
