If it’s a family-friendly getaway you seek, Sunriver Resort is where you’ll find it.
Start your day with a warm breakfast at Carson’s American Kitchen at the lodge, which on the weekends features a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar, or grab a cup of coffee on the go at Brewed Awakenings.
Every year the resort pulls out a full lineup of events that you’ll want to make a part of your family’s traditions.
For those who want to have some fun in Sunriver, there are plenty of places to ride bikes or walk around the Village in Sunriver. Or you can head out on an adventure along the Cascade Lakes Highway — stop off at Tumalo Mountain for a challenging hike where the rewards are 360 views of the Cascades and Deschutes National Forest.
The High Desert Museum is a great stop for the whole family — there are exhibits, both indoors and out, that provide insight on the region’s past, present and future. Bonus — the river otters, porcupines and other animals that delight everyone.
The Sunriver Homeowners Aquatics & Recreation Center (SHARC)’s indoor play area has a huge hot tub for adults and a heated play pool for the kids. And spring or summer, it’s imperative that you make a stop at Goody’s for a sundae or cone — sit at the old-timey counter.
For dinner, you’ll never go wrong with Sunriver Brewing Co., but you may want to try Hola!, a Peruvian-Mexican restaurant with huge margaritas and delicious plates. For a low-key locals spot, try out the Frontier Grill, a food truck specializing in burgers and other stick-to-your-ribs sandwiches. Or head to Marcello’s Cucina Italiana, a longtime favorite in the Village that will fill you up with overflowing servings of family-friendly pasta.
