Are you looking for the perfect spring break getaway with your kids? Traveling with children can be both rewarding and challenging, so it’s important to plan ahead to ensure your family has the best experience possible. Whether you’re looking to explore a nearby city or take a road trip, there are countless opportunities to create an unforgettable spring break.

Where to go for Spring Break?

First, decide where you want to go. Consider the interests of your family and how far you’d like to travel. Are you looking for a mountain vacation with an adventure focus? Do you want to stay within driving distance?

Families from all over the Pacific Northwest visit Bend, Oregon every Spring Break. Although the weather can vary, typically clear skies shine brightly on the fresh mountain snow while the flowers in town begin to awaken. Lower elevation trails in Bend are ready for bikes, dogs and running/hiking, while kayaks can be rented and used in the Deschutes River through downtown Bend and the Old Mill District.

When families stay at Bend’s Tetherow Resort, they can access the best of Bend, Central Oregon and the resort overall. Located on the southwestern edge of Bend, downtown is just minutes away, while Mt. Bachelor is a quick 20 minute drive. The resort also borders the Deschutes National Forest with quick access to the legendary Phil’s Trail mountain biking system.
