Bluegreen Resorts Western Region: An Outdoor Wonderland

Fishing in the WestBluegreen Resorts, offering more than 60 high-quality and affordable resort destinations for vacationing families and friends, operates in over 40 cities and towns spread across the United States and the Caribbean. The four vacation properties in Bluegreen’s Western Region open onto some of the most breathtaking vistas anyone could ask for, and can become your gateway to experiencing the natural beauty and the variety of opportunities for fun that distinguish that part of the country.

The sweep and color of the Grand Canyon, the ski slopes of the California mountains, and the glittering nightlife of the Las Vegas Strip are just a few of the colorful places available when you take your Bluegreen Resorts vacation out west. And because the region is rich in the history of pioneers, explorers, prospectors, and even an outlaw or two, you have the option of revisiting the rambunctious history that distinguishes the American West.

Big Bear Lake, in the mountains of Southern California, is a true Hollywood backdrop; the area has served moviemakers well as the scene of numerous location shots, and the world-class entertainment and excitement of Los Angeles itself are no more than a few hours’ distance away. But for vacationers enjoying the alpine air in Big Bear Lake, the variety of skiing opportunities on both snow and water, as well as horseback riding, kayaking, and zip lining, should offer plenty of adventure. The surrounding countryside features a seven-mile lake and an unexpected full array of seasons, from bright spring wildflowers and lush summer greenery to the amber-colored leaves of fall and the glittering mountain snowscapes in winter. Charter a trout-fishing excursion, tour a replica of a Spanish pirate ship, or visit the nearly 100 species of alpine wildlife in the local zoo.

Peoria, Arizona, just outside Phoenix, is home to the Bluegreen Resorts property only a few hours away from the Grand Canyon, one of the wonders of the natural world and one of the world’s most deeply cut gorges. The region around the canyon has played host to renowned artists such as architect Frank Lloyd Wright and western writer Louis L’Amour, and today offers a wide range of opportunities to experience Native American cultures and a flourishing arts community. This stunning region of the Southwest is rich with the reds, yellows, and purples of the Grand Canyon and the spare beauty of the Sonoran Desert, as well as the history of cowboys and gunfighters.

Las Vegas, home to yet another Western region destination, provides gaming enthusiasts with a multitude of opportunities for amusement. But the city has also become a safe and fun place for family entertainment to be found at the Adventuredome, the biggest enclosed theme park in the country, a not-to-be-missed aquarium, and the gondola rides at the Venetian hotel. Las Vegas is also surrounded by the array of colors in the Mojave Desert, and by opportunities to enjoy outdoor activities such as waterskiing, golf, tennis, and extreme sports.

And Kauai in Hawaii, often called the state’s “Island of Discovery,” offers Bluegreen Resorts vacationers a paradise of shoreline, forest, and mountain scenery. The cliffs along the Napali Coast and the Pacific region’s own version of the Grand Canyon define the landscape, while small towns offer a rich history and charm all their own. Take a helicopter tour of the island and see the sights from the sky.

Let Bluegreen Resorts be your portal to the beauty and richness of a vacation in the American West.
