I'm giving five stars for the whole area not necessarily the town. Winthrop is a lovely little town modeled after the old west circa 1890. But it is just one of the reasons the entire Methow Valley is beautiful. With 3 rivers, the Methow, Twisp and Chewuch winding through this valley under a huge sky that always manages to have fluffy white clouds this is America at it's best. (Dramatic sounding I know but when your there you will feel it too)
Come for the hiking, fishing, camping, rafting, and mountain biking. Then the town of Winthrop is a nice reprieve. Someplace to stay, or dine out.

The town -- or at least the tourist part of it -- is super small. It's very kitschy. They've tried to capture the town as it was at the turn of the century. Saloons and general stores line the main drag. We came here regularly mostly as a destination because the ride along Highway 20 is one of the best roads in Washington state.
