Christmas in Sunriver

T’was the week before Christmas
And our vacation was near.
I packed my wife and kids in the car
For some Sunriver Resort cheer.
From T’was the week before Christmas at Sunriver Resort

For Christmas this year, we’ll be traveling 4 hours Southeast of Portland to Sunriver Resort. It’s a premier family vacation destination in the Cascade Mountains of Central Oregon. Not only will we have a White Christmas, which is rare in Portland, but we’ll likely have blue skies and sunshine as well. Sunriver is blessed with an average of 300 days of sunshine each year.


The resort goes all out for the holidays, offering sleigh rides, elf tuck-ins, a gingerbread house contest and display, a magic show, holiday crafts, breakfast or brunch with Santa, holiday family portraits, ice skating, a tubing hill and more. Our vacation rental also comes with passes to Sunriver’s new SHARC center, which includes two indoor pools, a FlowRider®, and a 1,000 sq. ft. indoor rock-climbing wall.

We’ll have plenty of options, but we’re also looking forward to playing in the snow and simply hanging out by the fire. It should all make for a wonderful holiday. Stay tuned for photos and a recap of our trip.
