Springtime in Bend is best spent bouncing between natural and urban playgrounds, where you’ll find your days full of wonder and enjoyment. Bend is not a place for distracting attractions, it’s a place to explore, play and treat yourself right, according to oregonlive.com.

March is the time of year when snowbirds start to come home, spring break is upon us, and everyone cozied inside from the winter start to explore the great outdoors again. If you find yourself in Bend this springtime, be sure to jump in, be a part of the community, meet a new friend and a new place you call home.
