Which Small Town in WA Was Named Best for Main Street Shopping?
Every small town has a Main Street that's usually the hub of activity.
Over the years I've had the pleasure of living in several small towns all over the country and loved every minute of shopping at Main Street boutiques and shops. Some of my most prized possessions were purchased at Main Street businesses.
The website Cheapism has listed the best Main Street shopping districts in the USA.
As for Washington, I would have thought Walla Walla or Leavenworth would take the top honor. But, no. It's Winthrop! Not only is the town noted for best Main Street shopping in the state, the picturesque views of the Cascade Mountains, there's so much more.
In addition to shops and restaurants, a museum, galleries, and a rhythm and blues festival are part of the experience.
You can bet the next time I get to Winthrop, I'm stopping at each and every shop. Fight me!
