Summer Activities

Tips for planning activities during your trip.

1. Make a reservation before you arrive – many activities have adjusted or reduced operations due to staffing levels.

2. Weekdays vs Weekend – Peak times (Saturday, Sundays and holiday weekends) are when town restaurants, parking lots, hiking trails and activities will be their busiest. If you have flexibility, we recommend planning your trip when possible mid-week.

3. Timing is everything – Early bird gets the worm.

4. Skip the Car – Our rental resorts are all centrally located or have shuttle service. Take advantage of the assets of your property location and avoid driving when possible.
