Whether you’re a Bend native or call Central Oregon home, the city of Bend has become a local and regional gem to visit for the first time or staycation in as a local. With a population of only 80,000, the culture, people, and beauty make it a top spot to spend some time. The locals pride themselves in keeping Bend special, and it comes across in how they play – rest – and enjoy life!
Bend has much to offer the weekend adventurer from a day hike, kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding on the Deschutes River. After a day outdoors, cool off with a locally crafted beer from one of 22 (and counting) breweries that feature award-winning IPAs, stouts, and ciders.
