My family was staying at the Sunriver Resort and we were in need of some groceries, so headed over to the Village for a shopping trip. There is a nice, full-sized IGA in the Village, with reasonably priced food. Much easier than bringing supplies from home.
The next day we returned to the Village to play and explore more. My husband and kids spent time playing the 18-hole mini golf course and bouncing in the bouncy house area. I went to explore the little shops and ended up buying myself some jewelry and some souvenirs. There are lots of places to eat in the village as well. The coffee shop that I stopped in had amazing cinnamon rolls and great coffee. This is a fun place for the whole family!
We spend an entire day just walking around the village and had so much fun. There is several small boutiques as well as an ice skating rink and an old fashion ice cream shop with lots of yummy treats. We tried chocolate covered potato chips! There are bookstores, several restaurants, even a grocery store. I highly recommend spending an entire day here.
Sunriver, Oregon is a beautiful resort area in central Oregon, just outside of Bend, featuring a lodge, many condos and vacation rentals, and a fun village center with lots to do. Even if you're not staying overnight, the village makes a great mid-afternoon stop while traveling. Open year round, it includes many specialty shops and restaurants, but what your kids will love is the ice skating rink (covered) and extensive arcade. You can also rent bikes and take to the many trails weaving through the resort.
