‘We are just here to spend some quality time’: Families visit Bend, C.O. for relaxing, fun spring break
(Update: Adding video, comments from Visit Central Oregon, spring break visitors)
BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- Spring break week is nearing an end in Central Oregon, and some visitors and residents alike are making the most of their last few days of relaxing time together.
It is the first time in Bend for the Christensen family. They were at the Old Mill on Friday, visiting from Brookings, and they shared the rest of their spring break plans.
Andrea Christensen said, "We are just here to spend some quality family time and relax at the Sunriver Resort."
Her son, Liam Christensen, said, "Yeah, normally we go like for spring break, we go all out and stuff and go to Disneyland or Universal, but we just want to relax for a little."
If you're still looking for things to do this spring break, Visit Central Oregon has some suggestions.
The destination marketing organization helps inspire travelers to celebrate the area's culture, people and landscapes.
Visit Central Oregon's Communications Manager Katie Johnson said, "We've been working really hard to make sure that people have the information where they can come here and just do things that make them happy and really enjoy their stay while they're here."
Johnson said with the recent snow at Mt. Bachelor, they've been sending more people headed to the slopes.
A Mt. Bachelor representative said they have the deepest snow base since March of 2017, with excellent snow quality and "the Cascades weather working in our favor to contribute to the great skiing and riding at the resort."
Johnson said, "Wanderlust Tours, you know, they have a really great snowshoe tour as well. High Desert Museum has some really amazing exhibits right now. So there's really there's a ton of stuff to be doing."
