Located in the heart of the Methow Valley, nestled into the foothills of the North Cascades, Twisp is a dynamic center for art, culture and adventure, with a down-to-earth atmosphere and friendly attitude. Swing by Twisp’s downtown art gallery, play in its riverside park, relax at its boutique spa, or take in an evening of theater. Enjoy Italian fine dining, finger-licking BBQ, pizza, burgers, tacos and more – or stop in to enjoy international wine tastings, sip award-winning microbrews from an on-site taproom, or get energized with world-class, locally-brewed coffee.
Saturday mornings from April to October, visit the Methow Valley Farmers Market, featuring dozens of local farmers and artisans – then walk right across the street to TwispWorks, the 6-acre outdoor campus and active hub for live music, artist studios, child-friendly splash pad and Twisp's famous food truck.
Whether you’re looking for day-long recreation or a quick breath of fresh air, Twisp offers several trailheads for dog-friendly hiking, riverside walking, mountain biking, and horseback riding – or snowshoeing, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing, depending on when you visit! (Hint: just a few miles away you’ll find the Loup Loup Ski Bowl: a no-lines, community-first ski/snowboard/luging/tubing resort in winter and disc golf/camping/biking spot in summer that’s a hidden gem in Okanogan County!)
Can’t squeeze in all the fun in just one night? Stay in any of Twisp’s friendly lodging: bring your little buddy to a pet-friendly hotel, take delight in a homemade breakfast from a family-owned B&B, park your trailer at a riverside RV park, or simply pop up a tent at any number of nearby Forest Service campgrounds.
