Favorite thing: I really like that the town of Chelan overlooks Lake Chelan. The town isn't that large, so while you can certainly go browsing through shops and restaurants, there's also a lot to do on the water, such as swimming and boating.
try to get out onto the water. While we unfortunately didn't have time, Lake Chelan seems to be the local 'Mecca' for boaters.
