Staycation Season Is Here!
The Silverado Staycation is a tradition begun at Valley Ranch several years ago. Born out of creative necessity, Staycation has become something residents, family members, and associates look forward to all year long.
In the summer of 2011, renovations were underway. Residents needed to be relocated for a week or so at a time. While these residents were out of their usual rooms, they went on “vacation.” They were treated to a nice “hotel” room in a new location within our community and experienced the sights and sound of a vacation destination. From these beginnings, Silverado Staycation has grown to a major event held not only at Valley Ranch, but all Dallas Fort Worth Silverado Locations.
This year’s Staycation destinations will be experienced for a full week. Residents will listen to entertainers, watch movies and travel videos, make crafts and decorations, make and taste foods and sample drinks from the region being “visited.” The lobby of Valley Ranch will be transformed to resemble our current Staycation destination. The week culminates with a Staycation Happy Hour on Friday from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm.
