When planning a family vacation, it can become stressful. What does everyone want to do? What do you need to bring? Well at Black Butte Ranch we make it easy with helpful tips and a great location. Our Central Oregon Resorts makes it easy to pack the family up and head to Oregon.

Plan

First, find a date that works for everyone. This will put everyone on the same page with no surprises to the kids. Then make a reservation to reserve your date, so there are not any confusions or stressors when you arrive. Next, make a packing list. What does each kid need? Is there anything special that someone needs, such as medicine or clothes. The best course of action is to find a place that supplies equipment for activities and fully equipped kitchens. This way you are not packing everything but the kitchen sink.

The key is not to over plan. Don’t pack the day full of events. At some point, the kids will get tired or cranky, and you want them to have the time to relax. Do not forget your needs as well. This is as much your vacation as it is theirs, whether that is hiring a babysitter for you to have a nice dinner or having your partner watch the kids while you treat yourself to the spa or relaxing by the pool with a book.

Choose Your Destination Wisely

When selecting a destination, think about the whole family. Is there something for everyone to enjoy, is it kid friendly, does it supply food or equipment? At Black Butte Ranch we are seven miles from Sisters, Oregon and on 1800 acres of land. It is the perfect place to run around and have fun. We offer two of the best championship golf courses in Central Oregon plus swimming, horseback riding, fly fishing, a spa, 18 miles of hiking and biking trails, canoeing, and so much more. There for sure will be a chance for everyone to do what he or she wants. Black Butte Ranch prides itself on being a family-friendly resort. With a ton of kid activities and a day camp during the summer, the kids will be exhausted by the end of the day. We also offer a babysitting program so you can have some you time. Do not worry about having to make a meal every night because we offer dining options for the whole family as well as a snack shop for those afternoon munchies. We want to make it easy for you to enjoy your vacation and for everyone to have the time of his or her lives.
