HomeVisitor GuidesTop Reasons to Go on a Sunriver Vacation

Vacations, retreats, destination events—all of these should be getaways in multiple senses of the word. Not only should you get away from the hustle and hassle of your daily routine, you should also get away from the noise and crowds of the city. Sunriver is an excellent choice for both of these. Not only do you get to enjoy a leisurely vacation, you also get to enjoy the gorgeous Pacific northwest. Plus, there’s plenty to do in Sunriver. Don’t just admire the natural beauty, get in touch with it! See some of the best reasons to plan a Sunriver vacation below!

Return to Nature in Comfort

One of the best things about Sunriver is the wealth of natural beauty in central Oregon. There are plenty of places around Sunriver that give you the chance to learn more about the area and reconnect with nature. The Sunriver Nature Center features live wildlife and an interpretive nature walk that’ll help you quickly learn about the natural history and ecology of the area. The Oregon Observatory, only a stone’s-throw from Sunriver Resort, features a retractable roof and over ten telescopes that visitors can use to explore the night sky in detail. And if you’ve ever wondered what a volcanic eruption is like, visit Lava River Cave to explore the aftermath!

Perhaps the best part is that all of this is available right nearby some of the most comfortable cabins you’ll ever rest in. The resort and surrounding neighborhoods enjoy all the creature comforts one could want on Sunriver vacation, all surrounded by the scent of pine.


One thing Sunriver boasts over the rest of central Oregon is the SHARC—the Sunriver Homeowners’ Aquatic and Recreation Center! This popular aquatic complex is a great choice all year thanks to their indoor pools. Kids can work off their energy in the lap pools or splash in the shallows, while adults can exercise along or relax in the hot tubs. Summer also features the lazy river and waterslides, but winter’s a fine time too thanks to SHARC’s winter tubing! One can easily visit SHARC multiple times on their Sunriver vacation and not tire of it.
