What’s Hot for Summer? The 7 Best Things to do at Suncadia

Summer is truly the season of adventure. The pace of things seems to let up a bit, and we finally find the time to do the things we spend the rest of the year dreaming about. If you’re ready for your summer adventure, head to Suncadia for all kinds of fun.

1. Go white water rafting on the Cle Elum River

An expert guide will take you rafting on the Cle Elum River. You can schedule your adventure any day of the week, at any time – after all, it’s your vacation! Trips are three to four hours long and rafters enjoy some river rapids, beautiful views and a delicious streamside meal.

2. Ride a horse

At the Washington State Horse Park just a few miles from the heart of Suncadia, you can explore mountain trails atop a noble steed. Beginners will delight in the incredible scenery, while more experienced riders will appreciate the first-class facilities in addition to the remarkable views.

3. Ride a bike

If you prefer riding a bike to riding a horse, you’ll have plenty of ground to cover at Suncadia. The resort has over 40 miles of trails both paved and unpaved. Some are easy for family rides, and some are more thrilling. City riding is fun, but there’s nothing like racing through trails in the clean mountain air.

4. Have a mineral soak

Vacation doesn’t have to be all adventure, of course. Head to the Glade Spring Spa after a long day on the trails to soak in the outdoor mineral water pool and gaze at the vast starry blanket of the nighttime sky.

5. Have a more exciting soak

The Swim + Fitness Center at Suncadia features two water slides as well as indoor and outdoor spas and pools. Bask in the rush of sliding down the two-story slides, or bask in the sun and enjoy the beauty of your surroundings. You can also head to the gym for a workout or fitness class if you really want to, but you don’t have to – this is vacation, after all.

6. Paddle board on Village Lake

There’s a reason stand up paddle boarding is so popular: it’s because it’s really fun! Glide over the calm expanse of Village Lake or explore on an inflatable stand up paddle board on the Yakima River. Whichever you choose, you’ll have a guide to help you get comfortable so you can enjoy your time on the water.

7. Golf on one of three award-winning course

If you’re a golfer, you might find that you never want to leave Suncadia. The resort features three different courses, all eighteen holes and all surrounded by the rustic beauty of the Cascade Mountains.

The Prospector Golf Course was designed by the Arnold Palmer Course Design Company, the Rope Rider Golf Course opened in 2011 and was named Best New Course of the Year by Golf Magazine, and the Tumble Creek Club was designed by the famed Tom Doak of Renaissance Golf Design.

Whether your perfect summer vacation is about relaxing or adventuring, Suncadia offers tons of amenities to make your vision a reality. They even have opportunities for those interested in owning a home, including homesites where you can build your dream getaway and move-in-ready homes, condos and cabins.
