Lake Chelan dominates Best NW EscapesWell maybe you didn't need a contest to tell you this, but the Best Northwest Escapes contest put on by KING 5 of Seattle has validated what we all knew anyway -- Lake Chelan is one heck of a place to vacation.
The pristine 55-mile-long lake in North Central Washington came away with five awards in this year's Best Northwest Escape contest. It was named the sunniest spot in the Northwest, with its 300 days of sunshine each year. It also won best boating, best lake excursion and best place to water ski.
And, if you happen to be a group of women looking for a place to get away for the weekend, the Grandview on the Lake -- at Lake Chelan, of course -- was named the best girls weekend destination.
The awards are voted on by viewers of KING 5 and last year more than 33,000 people voted.
