There are usually two different answers that people are searching for when they try to find maps of Wenatchee.

“Where is Wenatchee?!”
It’s usually the first thing people ask when you mention Wenatchee in a conversation. For some reason it’s one of those places that even longtime Washington residents can have a hard time locating.
Wenatchee is located in the Southeast corner of Chelan County. It sits almost directly in the middle of Washington State and lies on the west side of the Columbia. One thing that confuses a lot of people is that East Wenatchee, which lies just across the bridge on the other side of the river, is actually a separate town and is in Douglas County.
