“Once a frontier logging town called Farewell Bend, this picturesque city of 80,000 is a seductive spot for travelers who are into craft brewing and the great outdoors. The Bend region has 26 breweries, three wineries, two craft spirit distilleries, two cideries and the Cycle Pub, a tour that allows visitors to quaff craft beers while powering a sort of mobile pub by cycling ...Bend has nearly 300 miles of single -track mountain bike trails, including two new ones, Tyler’s Traverse and Duodenum; a soon-to-open fat-bike trail (at Wanoga Sno-Park); world-class skiing at Mt. Bachelor; and an embarrassment of riches for hikers, fishermen, climbers, standup paddle boarders, and kayakers.” -The New York Times (naming Bend one of the top 52 place s in the world to visit in 2015)

“Bend is a fast-growing, adventure paradise of more than 76,000 people in central Oregon that happens to have the region’s premier ski area, Mt. Bachelor, 22 miles west up the road. If you ever dream of skiing in the Pacifi c Northwest, Bachelor is the kind of mountain you dream about. A 9,000-foot strato volcano lined with highspeed quads and skiable down every side, it’s a huge, diverse area which, being on the drier, east side of the Cascades, has lighter snow than the Pacific cement that coats most mountains in the region.” -National Geographic Traveler (naming Bend one of the top 25 ski towns in the world)

If

Bend is the outdoor playground of the west, you should know up front this is no ordinary jungle gym.

Tucked between snow-covered peaks and high desert plateaus, Bend has evolved from a sleepy lumber town to an international mecca for outdoor enthusiasts and people in search of active vacation pursuits. Play is non-negotiable during your visit to Bend, Oregon. Your morning coffee is still warm when you hit the Cascade Mountains and the Deschutes National Forest just minutes outside Bend. You can carve fresh tracks on the snow-covered slopes of Mt. Bachelor, cast a fly into the trout-filled waters of the Deschutes River, or simply walk through the soul-stirring beauty of the Three Sisters mountains. Inner child unleashed, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re up for more. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget your sunscreen: Bend has nearly 300 days of sunshine per year. Back in town, afternoon temperatures are warm, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s off with the jacket and out with the clubs. Be picky if you like â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Bend area offers more than two dozen scenic, challenging golf courses from the industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top course designers.

If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a leisurely pedal that suits you, coast your cruiser to hip eateries, fashionable boutiques, and then to an outdoor concert on the banks of the picturesque Deschutes River. The Deschutes is home to fly fishermen, rafters, kayakers, and inflatable tubers. Got an urge to try something new? Oodles of outfitters can hook you up with a standup paddleboard and a quick lesson to have you skimming the glassy surface of the river. If your skills are up to snuff, check out the state-of-the-art Bend Whitewater Park with three separate channels for all skill levels. Experts will love the Whitewater Channel that features four distinct manmade waves where you can test your mettle on a surfboard or whitewater kayak. You can opt for a more mellow series of rapids as you float through the Passageway Channel in your heavy-duty inner tube.

PADDLE PLAY

Paddle-sports are the fastest growing segment of Bend’s self-propelled sports scene. On the Deschutes River, there’s flatwater and whitewater for avid kayakers, canoeists, and rafters as well as the popular townie run that attracts thousands of floaters in everything from inflatable mattresses to inner tubes throughout the summer. The Bend Paddle Trail Alliance (BPTA) created a long-distance Deschutes River trail from the river’s headwaters to Lake Billy Chinook. BPTA maps, available at the Bend Visitor Center, show put-ins, takeouts, camping spots, and the difficulty of each section of the river trail. The Bend Whitewater Park became the first of its kind in Oregon when it opened in 2015. The park offers controlled waves for kayaking, surfing, boogie and paddleboarding, along with a Passageway Channel for adventurous river floaters.

For kayakers and rafters, a popular Deschutes River run is from Aspen Camp to Lava Island Falls via the Big Eddy rapids. This Class III+ run is a few miles south of Bend and is best undertaken from late spring until late fall. Daily guided rafting adventures are offered on this stretch of river by both Sun Country Tours and the Seventh Mountain River Company. For a full day of rafting excitement, Ouzel Outfitters and Sun Country Tours offer trips on the lower Deschutes River near the rafting town of Maupin. Big splashy class IV rapids like Boxcar and Oak Springs deliver a thrilling experience. In town, local kayakers gather at the First Street Rapids Park, to play in the churning waters and to hone their skills before slipping into faster current. Rent your own kayak, canoe, or tube just steps from the river at Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe. Apart from the Deschutes, the Cascade Lakes region, a short drive from Bend, is a mecca for recreation and touring kayak paddlers and canoeists from all over the world.

#visitlikealocal Secret ways to do Bend best

Show the Trails some tenderness// Bend locals know we’ve got some of the top trails on earth, and we want to keep them that way. Skidding on corners or blowing out berms is so not cool when you’re mountain biking, and smart cyclists keep off muddy trails so ruts don’t form. If you’re out for a hike, keep your boots moving on marked trails. Not only does it help with erosion, but it ensures you won’t end up on the six-o-clock news for getting lost in the woods. >> visitbend.com/blog


ROCK ‘N CLIMB Come to Bend for her beauty, stay for the climbing. Smith Rock State Park, the birthplace of American sport climbing, is just a short drive north to Terrebonne. In the late ’70s, climbers from Europe descended on the welded tuff of this little-known treasure bringing it world acclaim and a legacy for classic sport routes. Monkey Face, one of the most photographed climbs in North America, is Smith’s most prominent pinnacle. Bouldering spots abound at Smith Rock as well as along the Deschutes River Trail. Guided climbs are available from First Ascent Climbing Services, Smith Rock Climbing School, and Smith Rock Climbing Guides. During the chillier months, check out the Bend Rock Gym for indoor rock wall climbing.

HOOK, LINE, & SINKER

Long before the Bend area became famous as a self-propelled sports enthusiasts destination, it was known for its fishing. In addition to year-round fishing for trout and steelhead, Bend is surrounded by nationally-renowned rivers, streams, and lakes that provide anglers with a mindboggling abundance and variety of worldclass fishing opportunities. Rated by Fly Fisherman magazine as one of the top 10 fly fishing towns in the U.S., Bend is truly a fly-fishing paradise. Cast your line over the fast-flowing Tumalo Creek below Tumalo Falls, the gin-clear Fall River south of town, and stretches of the Deschutes River either right in town or just a few miles outside Bend. There is no one best season for stream and river fishing as sections of the Deschutes

are open to fly-anglers throughout the winter. In early summer, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a significant salmon fly hatch and, come fall, many big browns start to migrate from the Deschutes into smaller feeder streams. When it comes to lake fishing, the Cascade Lakes region is noted for its good-sized rainbows especially in Crane Prairie Reservoir. For the ultimate challenge, try Hosmer Lake, home to large brookies and landlocked Atlantic salmon. Brush up on your skills at the 12-hole casting course in the Old Mill District. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first permanent casting course in the country, and you can pick up a brochure at the Old Mill Ticket Mill. Except where otherwise noted, Bend area streams, rivers, and lakes are open to bait and spin fishing generally for rainbow, brook, and brown trout. Bass fishing, while limited mostly to ponds, is popular on Crane Prairie and Wickiup reservoirs, and Davis Lake.

CASCADE LAKES HIGHWAY Call it the Recreation Highway, the Fun Highway, or the Gateway to the High Country, the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway is all that and more. It starts out as Century Drive in Bend, and as it climbs toward Mt. Bachelor, becomes the Cascade Lakes Highway. After passing by the high lakes, the scenic highway becomes South Century Drive as it completes its 100-mile course through the mountains. This roadway is the lifeline for snow-sports lovers in winter, and for paddle-sports enthusiasts, cyclists, fishermen, campers, hikers, climbers, and sailors in summer.

NOWY GO HERE! S RK DRAKE PA

CRATER LAKE NATIONAL PARK With a variety of trails to hike with nothing but brilliant blues to gaze upon, this is a gem of the Cascade Range. In the summer months, take the Cleetwood Cove trail down to water’s edge of the seventh deepest lake in the world. Go for a dip in the 50-degree water if you dare. For the brazen soul, take a flying leap off the 20-foot rock cliff into the refreshing blue abyss. Or, opt for a scenic boat ride out to Wizard Island. Winter adventure seekers can folic in the fluff on snowshoes or skis.

DRAKE PARK & MIRROR POND Two of Bend’s gleaming downtown accessories are Drake Park — which sits between the lazy banks of the Deschutes and the hum of downtown — and Mirror Pond. Cruise by and you’ll spot leisure walkers, runners, kids, and dogs all enjoying the park any time of the year.

GO HERE! CATCH THE SUNSET FROM TUMALO MOUNTAIN

This 500-foot extinct volcano juts up from the center of Bend, and offers the best views. Pilot Butte is a 100-acre State Scenic Viewpoint acquired by the city in 1927. Choose the steeper, dirt path to the top, or a more gradual ascent that follows the paved road for a portion of the climb. Once you reach the top, snap photos of Mt. Bachelor, Three Sisters, Mt. Jefferson, Broken Top, Mount Hood, and a variety of other peaks.

Savor the splendor of breathtaking waterfalls along this hike. The first viewpoint is just a few steps from the parking lot, or walk five minutes to the top. From there, you can continue upstream along the creek to find more falls en route to Happy Valley four miles away. When the gate is closed during the winter months, you can snowshoe or cross-country ski to the falls making for a breathtaking 4.5 mile round-trip.

SMITH ROCK STATE PARK Striking basalt tufts of rock jet up from the Crooked River Canyon, while hiking trails like Misery Ridge and the Summit Loop trail offer breathtaking viewpoints. Bring your climbing gear to enjoy more than 1,000 bolted routes, or just savor a leisurely walk with binoculars to scope out the local wildlife.

WINTER FUN

In the early 1900s, Norwegian and Swedish immigrants arrived in Bend to work in the town’s flourishing timber mills. With them came skiing, and ever since, both alpine and cross-country have been staples of Bend’s winter sports scene. Snowshoeing and backcountry skiing have joined the list of winter activities along with dog sledding, snowmobiling, ice skating, and tubing. Bend’s annual WinterFest embraces old man winter with a myriad of sporting events, ice-carving competitions, and live music every February.

SKIING & SNOWBOARDING Celebrating more than 50 years as a ski area, Mt. Bachelor is known nationwide as a “cruisers paradise” because of its moderately angled long runs. There are also enough steeps and trees to keep the more extreme skier/rider happy. When it comes to snow, Mt. Bachelor has the best

Situated across the parking lot, the Mt. Bachelor Nordic Center has 55 kilometers of groomed trails for skate and classic skiing. A bit closer to town off Century Drive, there are close to 30 kilometers of groomed trails at the Virginia Meissner Sno-Park. For those who prefer un-groomed but marked trails, the Swampy Lake and Edison Sno-Park trails are an ideal way to escape the hustle and bustle and glide into the serene.

BACKCOUNTRY Because Three Sisters Wilderness and its volcanic peaks and cinder cones are so close, Bend’s backcountry skiing is among the most accessible in North America. Try Tumalo Mountain just across the road from Mt. Bachelor for a great mix of open bowl and tree skiing. Head back into the wilderness for all-day trips featuring long climbs and descents. Guided backcountry trips can be arranged through Oregon Ski Guides. If you prefer to try it on your own, maps and supplies are available at local ski shops.

SNOWSHOEING From Drake Park in the heart of Bend (when there’s snow in town) to anywhere along the Cascade Lakes Highway, you can strap on some snowshoes to get around. Try the marked snowshoe trails at the Edison, Swampy Lakes, and Virginia Meissner Sno-Parks. You can also nab a free corridor pass from Bachelor’s Nordic Center to shoe your way to Todd Lake. Or, try an all-inclusive tour led by a naturalist guide at Wanderlust Tours.

GO HERE! CATCH A HOCK EY GAME AT BEND’S PAVIL ION

ICE SKATING The Pavilion near the Old Mill District offers Central Oregon’s only full NHL-sized sheet of ice, which is perfect for everything from hockey games to family skate dates. You’ll also find rinks at Seventh Mountain Resort, Sunriver Resort, and a small community rink in nearby Redmond.

SLEDDING & TUBING Wanoga Sno-Park off the Cascade Lakes Highway offers kids and the kid-at-heart the opportunity to sled, build a snowman, and play in the snow to their hearts’ content. More tubing fun can be had at Mt. Bachelor’s Snowblast Tubing Park with an 800-foot ride over rollers and slippery slopes.

Oregon Trail of Dreams dog sled tours leave from the Sunrise Lodge at Mt. Bachelor. Owned and operated by Jerry Scdoris and his daughter, Iditarod racer Rachael Scdoris, Oregon Trail of Dreams harnesses some of the sport’s top dog athletes for fun and exhilarating family rides.

Popular attractions can get crowded in Bend, but there’s an insider trick for avoiding the crunch. Catch the Mt. Bachelor Park-n-Ride shuttle for a chill ride to the mountain in winter. When you’re out for that summertime river float, skip the multi-car-shuffle and snag a seat on the Ride the River shuttle. You can also rent a bike if you prefer to pedal your way around Bike Town USA.

A COURSE IN GOLF With more than 25 courses to choose from, and many of them created by golf’s best known architects, Bend has established itself as the Pacific Northwest’s premier golf destination and is home to four of the top 200 courses according to Golf Digest. Apart from the variety of courses, what makes golf special here are the views of the Cascade mountain range. It’s often said that every hole NATE WYETH on every Bend course is a scenic signature. A major event highlight of the golf season is the Pacific Amateur Golf Classic tournament in late September where contestants play seven local courses over six days.

Tip Number 4 - Ditch the plastic water bottle for something better! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to get parched in the high desert climate, and Bend locals are picky about the vessel that transports the fluid to their mouths. Scrap those crappy plastic bottles and grab a re llable, insulated bottle or beer growler from locally-owned Hydro Flask or DrinkTanks. Your drink will be cooler, and so will you! >> Get more tips on how to #visitlikealocal on your next trip to Bend at visitbend.com/visitlikealocal

WHAT TO DO BEND’S ART & SOUL

IF

PLAY :: SHOP :: EAT :: DRINK :: SPA :: ART :: FAMILY FUN

artists are inspired by breathtaking natural beauty, it’s no wonder Bend has one of the most vibrant art scenes in the Pacific Northwest. Downtown Bend and the Old Mill District are teeming with galleries featuring art in a variety of mediums, much of it inspired by our gorgeous high desert landscape. The first Friday of each month, local galleries and businesses throw open their doors for the First Friday Art Walk. You can sip wine and stroll the bustling streets, stopping to scope out the artwork, do a little shopping, or even meet the artists.

Every August, artists from the U.S. and Canada bring their work for the Art in the High Desert Festival along the banks of the Deschutes in the Old Mill District. Even if you’re not making an extra effort to see Bend’s art, you’re bound to stumble across it thanks to a public initiative called Art in Public Places. If live music is your scene, we’ve got it in spades. Every summer, the Les Schwab Amphitheater hosts some of the world’s hottest musicians from country to rock to jazz.

NATE WYETH

For year-round entertainment, check out the Tower Theatre, the restored historical venue named for the brightly-lit spire rising 78 feet above Wall Street, which hosts an array of talent. It’s also a great place to catch BendFilm each October, an avant-garde festival featuring indie films.

Central Oregon’s Premier Juried Fine Art & Craft Show last weekend of AUGUST 115 artists selected from the U.S. & Canada. On the banks of the Deschutes River. All in Bend, Oregon.

ROUNDABOUT ART ROUTE Art looks different in Bend, Oregon. It has skinned knees and a gleeful, good-time grin. It doesn’t sit stiffly on the walls of some museum. Our art knows how to have fun. After all, our art plays outside.

It’s easy to do the Roundabout Art Route at your own pace. Just pick up the map at the Bend Visitor Center and make your way around the city. Answer the trivia questions on your map and bring it back to the Bend Visitor Center for a oneof-a-kind prize.

The Roundabout Art Route is a collection of nearly two-dozen pieces of public art on display throughout the city in the most unlikely places – at the center of Bend’s traffic circles. The circles, also filled with plants, flowers, and trees, are designed to keep traffic flowing around the city.

If you prefer to have a guided tour by one of the coolest tour guides around, John Flannery of The Bend Tour Company offers Roundabout Art Route tours like the Bend Art Safari.

Each roundabout holds a unique display of art designed to enhance the cultural environment for Bend visitors and residents. It’s sponsored by Art in Public Places, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing art to the community of Bend. In 2005, Americans for the Arts honored these sculptures as being among the most innovative approaches to public art in the country.

Think of it as an art tour for active souls, offering 360-degree views of art against the backdrop of the most beautiful, vibrant, and quirky town in the nation. Bend, Oregon – our art plays outside!

VISIT BEND

A funny thing happens to people in Bend. The corners of their mouths tug up and their eyes start sparkling like the Deschutes River on a sunny day. Give in to the urge to grin at random strangers. Not only will folks smile back, but they’ll take you for one of their own. When you’re in Bend, you pretty much are.

WHERE TO SHOP

ONCE

you’ve gotten wrapped up in all Bend has to offer, you’ll want a little something wrapped up to take home with you. The bonus: it’s all tax free! The cosmopolitan vibe of downtown Bend beckons you to indulge your passion for fashion, fine art, home décor, jewelry, and more. The scene is brimming with small, hip shops like Clementine Urban Mercantile, vintage Western boutique Cowgirl Cash, one-of-a-kind jewels by Douglas Fine Jewelry Design, and quirky-cool Dudley’s Bookshop Café with an abundant selection of coffee, and snacks to enjoy while you browse for books. Then head for the historic Old Mill District for brand-name national and local retailers. Look for the three towering silver smokestacks that were once part of the Brooks-Scanlon lumber mill from Bend’s timber era. The historic brick building has been converted into outdoor retailer REI, while popular chains like White House Black Market, Buckle, and Zumiez offer something for everyone. Local gems like Vanilla Urban Threads, Nashelle Jewelry, and Ginger’s Kitchenware round out the eclectic mix, and the backdrop of the Deschutes River lets you scope out otters and kayakers while you scout for deals.

Jackalope Grill

750 Northwest Lava Road, Bend, Oregon, 97701

Photo: Eliotte Garling

We are fine dining

The Jackalope Grill is dedicated to old-fashioned warmth and affordability while delivering superior food and service. Chef Tim was born and raised on the Washington coast. “Wild fish and game wasn’t so special—it was what Dad brought home for dinner.” A winding trail and serendipity brought Tim to one of France’s best culinary schools. “Culinary school offers every student the same training but mine has given form to memories of my Grandmother’s kitchen and the smells of French country villages on Sunday morning.” Co-owner Kathy Garling oversees the front of the house, applying a wealth of culinary expertise and curates the wine list featuring extensive Northwest selections.

TAKE YOUR FORK OUTDOORS

Just

because your bellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growling doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean you need to stop playing and head inside. Bendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s abundance of outdoor recreation gives this city an edge if you crave sunshine on your shoulders while you refuel your body. The sunny courtyard at McKay Cottage is the perfect spot to savor a tasty breakfast scramble as you listen to the wind in the trees.

Want a local secret? Zydeco boasts limited rooftop dining and the best sunset views in town. Order their barbecue shrimp and prepare to have your tastebuds swoon. At the peak of summer, Mt. Bachelor offers one of Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most unique dining experiences by inviting you to dine at 7,775 feet in the Pine Marten Lodge.

If you saved room for dessert, swing by Bonta Gelato in downtown Bend and choose from scrumptuoussounding flavors like salted caramel or roasted strawberry with honey. Grab a scoop or two, then set out for a stroll through the downtown streets before capping your evening off on a park bench in Bendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scenic Drake Park.

GLUTEN-FREE AND VEGAN GOODNESS YOU’LL LOVE! When you go gluten-free or vegan, it can be scary traveling to a new place. You don’t know where to go to find meals that meet your dietary restrictions, and you fear the confused or scornful looks when you ask for a gluten-free menu. But gluten-free and vegan diners can relax in Bend. Plenty of Bend restaurants offer options guaranteed to delight even the gluten-and-meat-gobbling members of your party. Zydeco has mastered the art of safe dining for celiac sufferers and other gluten-intolerant diners. Nearly everything on their menu can be prepared gluten-free, including tasty favorites like the barbecue shrimp, the artichoke and corn fritters, and even their famous flourless chocolate cake. Salud Raw Food offers tons of salads, wraps, and delicious desserts guaranteed to please both gluten-free and vegan diners. Can’t bear to give up baked goods or pizza? La Magie in downtown Bend makes wholesome gluten-free bread you’ll swear is the real deal, while Local Slice does a gluten-free pizza crust made even tastier by locally-sourced toppings and cheese. Dying to try The Lot to discover Bend’s fun food cart scene? Options at The Lot range from vegan offerings to gluten-free dishes, with a tap list to match. If it’s Mexican you’re craving, try the queretana enchiladas at Hola!, or the tasty assortment of tacos at Spork. Fans of Thai food will love the vegan swimming rama at Noi. When it’s time to rise and shine, devour the poached eggs with crispy herb polenta, spinach, and gluten-free hollandaise at Chow. Ask for a vegan surprise to have something equally tasty whipped up in the kitchen. Who says you have to give up juicy burgers when you give up meat? Next Level Burger offers a staggering array of burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, milkshakes, and more. Everything here is plant-based and delicious, so dig in without guilt. Craving Thai food? Noi has several scrumptious vegan and gluten-free options to choose from. If you wander into Spork, you’ll have a tough time choosing between the West African peanut curry packed with chickpeas, yams, cabbage, grilled onions, cilantro, and jasmine rice, or tasty favorites like their vegan version of Peruvian lomo saltado with red potatoes, sweet peppers, onion, grilled tomatoes, soy, radish, green onion, and jasmine rice. Get both, and take one to go!

Other safe bets for finding tasty vegan chow include Laughing Planet, Mazza Bistro, Kebaba, and Café Yumm. Go forth and eat safely and guilt-free in Bend!

NATE WYETH

Broken Top Bottle Shop is a safe bet whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free, since all their menu items are clearly marked. For an extra special treat, try the BBQ tempeh sando.

Their bountiful tap list always includes a cider or gluten-free beer so you can raise a toast with your beerswilling pals.

WHERE TO DRINK Welcome to the microbrew capital of the West. Bend has so many breweries, we couldn’t help but establish the Bend Ale Trail™. It’s been buzzed about everywhere from The New York Times to USA Today. In Bend, you can happily taste your way through coppery pale ales, creamy stouts, and crisp lagers.

NATE WYETH

Seeking a change of pace from malty goodness? Don’t miss the Drinkable Diversions, a side trip along the Bend Ale Trail to explore Bend’s alternative craft beverage scene. Bendistillery, Oregon Spirit Distillers, and Cascade Alchemy, are three small-batch distilleries reviving the tradition of premium handcrafted American distilled spirits. Hard cider, a naturally gluten-free alternative to beer, is taking Bend by storm with several craft cideries: Atlas Cider and Red Tank Cider Company. Made with regional and local ingredients like berries, apples, apricots, and even bacon, they’ve been described as a hybrid of winemaking and beer brewing. If vino is more your taste, hold on to your grapes because Bend has several award-winning wineries. In fact, Central Oregon was officially recognized as a wine region in 2011.

BEND ALE TRAIL You’ve heard about the Oregon Trail—that historic east-west wagon route instrumental in developing the West. While we won’t downplay its historical significance, we will say without fear of contradiction that the Bend Ale Trail™ is a whole lot more fun. Bend and the surrounding area has 29 world-class craft breweries and 15 are on the official Bend Ale Trail. Pick up the Atlas and Passport at any brewery on the trail or at the Bend Visitor Center in downtown, or use the virtual passport in the app. There are a lot of options for making your way safely around trail. It’s easy to walk or bike, as most breweries are within a few square miles of each other. If you prefer a shuttle or a SEGWAY, the Bend Tour Company offers a Bend Brew Taps Experience tour that includes brewery stops on the ale trail with tasty snacks.

For a behind-the-scenes “beerventure,” the Bend Brew Bus tour includes van transport, beer tastings, guided tours, and snacks. The Cycle Pub allows you to pedal on a bike made for 14. They also added a few more bike/bar hybrids to their fleet that require a few less feet to pedal. Jump on an electric bike “Brewdie Tour” with Let It Ride, or the Cowboy Carriage Company has a horse drawn carriage that lets you see and sip the sights while sitting atop hay bales. No matter how you choose to get around, it’s you vs. beer in Bend. Oh, and hey, make plans to be here in November, because it’s Bend Ale Trail Month, and we’ll give you a trophy for drinking beer.

HOW TO MEET LIKE A PRO

INSPIRING EVENTS

IF

you’re looking for an inspired and productive meeting venue, it helps to start with an equally inspiring location.

There’s no better setting for team-building than Bend’s great outdoors! Wanderlust Tours offers group outings like canoeing, caving, and snowshoeing, while the folks at Sun Country Tours can get your hearts pumping on a whitewater rafting trip for the whole team.

From conventions and sporting events to weddings, trade shows, family reunions, and retreats, Bend offers meeting planners a thoughtful mix of tools for both business and pleasure. It’s a proven fact that PowerPoint presentations are easier to digest when you’re anticipating a moonlit canoe adventure afterward. Sales meetings are more motivational when your team is surrounded by the majestic peaks of the Cascade mountains. And team-building is more cohesive when experienced in the awe-inspiring beauty of Central Oregon. In Bend, our expansive mix of meeting facilities, a state-of -the-art convention center, over 3,000 hotel rooms, convenient access, abundance of restaurants, and unparalleled outdoor recreation provide the perfect recipe for the perfect meeting. Of course, Bend is best known for amazing scenery and outdoor pursuits, so why not take advantage? If it’s a wedding you’re planning, consider making it an outdoor affair. Imagine tying the knot with blazing orange basalt rock in the distance at Smith Rock State Park, or on a grassy green lawn beside a stream at Shevlin Park. Whether you’re hosting a large sales convention or a small family reunion, be sure to save time for savoring Bend’s wealth of fun activities. Schedule a casual meeting on the green at one of more than 25 local golf courses, or plan a pampered outing with the girls at a luxurious day spa. Need to do a little team-building? Many guided tour companies offer customized outdoor adventures for groups of all sizes. The possibilities are as endless as the sunshine in Bend!
