Indulge in Sunriver Resort's Month of Chocolate!
*published February 2019*
The history of chocolate stretches back thousands of years. Archaeologists believe that the ancient Olmec people of Mesoamerica were enjoying chocolate all the way back in 1900 B.C. Things have certainly changed since back then, but one fact remains: chocolate is totally delicious. You can be a part of chocolate’s ongoing story at Sunriver Resort in central Oregon during February — AKA Sunriver’s Month of Chocolate. Here’s what’s in store for 2019.
