A Day at the Sharc, Longboard Louie’s and Deschutes Brewery

Why did the squirrel swim on his back?… to keep his nuts dry.

The SHARC in Sunriver

The kids have been dying to go to the SHARC, so first day we had the chance we went. For a community pool, I would say it borders more along the lines of a small water park. They have indoor play areas along with outdoor fun that includes a lazy river and two water slides and multiple pools. It is not crowded this week but in the heat of summer, this place is packed!

For spring break it cost about $60 for all four of us, but in the summer I believe it’s more like $100 for a family of four. They also have a SHARC Bite Cafe that serves lunch and alcohol for the longer days spent at the pool. They do let you pack in your own food and drinks in the outer area, which is great for a family on a budget.

Longboard Louie’s in Bend

This board lovers Mexican diner has super fresh food with plenty of vegan and vegetarian options. The diner’s walls are covered in surfboards, snowboards and skateboards. This place is one of our favorite stops in Bend and even if your not a boarder, it has a fun vibe with indoor and outdoor seating. My boys are picky eaters and they love the tacos here. Ryan and I always get the veggie burrito, it’s more than a meal!

Last Stop, Deschutes Brewery

I had never been in Deschutes brewery so I’ve been wanting to make this stop for a few years now. The first thing I noticed was how massive it is. Just the first floor is enormous but they also have upstairs seating. The design reminded me of a ski lodge with big beams and wrought iron artwork.

Since we just ate at Longboard Louie’s we just were stopping for a drink. The only other IPA option for us other than Fresh Squeezed(which we’ve had many times) was Hop Henge IPA. It had a big hoppy flavor, it was really yummy!


Jayden… always with the photobomb look.

That wraps up our day. After Deschutes we headed back to Thousand Trails to our cabin. We took a walk around camp and turned in early for the night.

Thanks for reading our post and showing interest in our family blog.
