Nestled in the middle of Washington State, Wenatchee has the advantages of the beautiful Northwest's landscape and wonderful climate. Established in 1811, the city is named for the Wenatchi tribe that lived in the area before settlers arrived. Host of the Washington State Apple Bloom Festival that takes place in the spring, its many orchards are the reason why Wenatchee is now known as the Apple Capital of the world.
