RE BEND, OREGON. IT’S WHE YOU GO TO PLAY!


We don’t like to brag. But if others want to boast about Bend’s breathtaking mountains, shimmering lakes, and hip cosmopolitan appeal, we’ll step aside with an “aw, shucks” smile and let them have their say. And boy do they have plenty to say! From The New York

Times praising Bend’s hoppin’ craft beer scene, to Dog Fancy magazine lauding the city’s abundant recreation for twoand four-legged travelers, major publications can’t stop buzzing about what makes Bend the hottest outdoor playground in the country. Here’s what the nation’s top media is saying about Bend…

discover bend OUTDOOR PURSUITS :: COSMO COOL

D

ubbed the “outdoor playground of the West” for a thousand good reasons, Bend is world famous for both its outdoor pursuits and pristine beauty. The historic downtown mixes cosmo cool with homegrown friendliness. A high desert climate just below snowladen peaks, the city of Bend has towering Ponderosa pines, twisting junipers, and the Deschutes River running through it. Turn around and you’ll find sparkling waterfalls, alpine lakes, fragrant sagebrush, and hillsides glistening with ancient black obsidian lava. If you’re intoxicated by more urban surroundings, let your palate lead you to one of 24—and counting—award-winning craft breweries in Central Oregon. You can sample locally-crafted artisan smooth lagers, well-balanced pale ales, malty stouts, and chocolaty porters.

S GO HERE! CASCADE LAKE

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 nonnegotiable during your visit to Bend. 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 snowcovered 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.

WHAT’S SUP?

Want to check out Bend’s lakes and rivers from a totally new perspective? Give standup paddleboarding (SUP) a shot. In March 2014, Outside Magazine declared Bend the world’s top spot for an SUP getaway, and we’re inclined to agree. On any summer day, you’ll see paddlers of all ages and fitness levels making their way through the middle of town on the Deschutes River. There are a number of outfitters in Bend that offer standup paddleboard lessons ranging from two-hour group lessons to private and semi-private options. They supply all the gear, including boards, paddles, life jackets, water shoes, and even cool weather gear if needed. It’s up to you to supply the muscle. Feeling comfortable already? Set out on your own. The marina at Elk Lake Resort offers equipment rental for use on the lake. Sun Country Tours, Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe, Stand on Liquid, Walkin’ On Water, and Standup Paddle Bend rent boards and paddles, including tie-downs to mount the board on your car. >> Find more at visitbend.com/sup

DID YOU KNOW? INSIDER TIPS FROM THE PROS

While standup paddleboarding originated in Hawaii as an offshoot of surfing, it’s become wildly popular in landlocked Bend. Give it a try on a calm section of the Deschutes River, or paddle your way across the glassy surface of a high Cascade lake. Outside Magazine has named Bend the Best SUP Getaway in the World. >> find out more at visitbend.com/sup

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. A major paddle-sport development has been the formation of the Bend Paddle Trail Alliance (BPTA) to create 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, take-outs, camping spots and the difficulty of each section of the river trail. Future plans call for the addition of whitewater play features in the Deschutes as it flows through town. 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.

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 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.

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 free public casting park, situated along the Deschutes River and several ponds in the Old Mill District. 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. Find more at visitbend.com/fish >>

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 towards 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.

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.

CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING

PETE ALPORT

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 over 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

45

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! TUMALO MOUN TAIN

ICE SKATING

The outdoor rink at Seventh Mountain Resort is only 10 minutes from downtown. Cozy up next to the outdoor fire pit with a hot chocolate or watch the fun from the warmth of the Rim Rock Bar. Plans are in motion for a regulation-sized open-air rink in Bend, which would make this the largest rink in Central Oregon.

SLEDDING & TUBING

TYLER ROEMER

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.

SNOWMOBILING

BEND’S ART & SOUL

IF

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. Bend has more than several dozen art sculptures adding some razzle to our roundabouts. Stop by the Bend Visitor Center to pick up your Roundabout Art Route map and earn prizes for answering trivia questions about the artwork. 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. 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. The Tower hosts an array of talent from indie rock bands to classic piano to theatre performances to standup comedy. It’s also a great place to catch BendFilm each October, an avant-garde film festival featuring indie films.

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. 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. 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.

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. If you prefer to have a guided tour by one of the coolest tour guides around, John Flannery of the GETIT Shuttle offers Roundabout Art Route tours like the Bend Art Safari and the Roundabout Art Rodeo daily. 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!

WHERE TO SHOP

ONCE

ING AT GO HERE! SHOPP ISTRICT. THE OLD MILL D

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 boutiques like clothier Hot Box Betty, multi-shop marketplace Trés Jolie, vintage Western boutique Cowgirl Cash, oneof-a-kind jewels by Douglas Fine Jewelry Design, and quirky-cool Dudley’s Bookshop Café with an abundant selection of wine, beer, 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. If bargains are your bag, try the Bend Factory Stores on Bend’s south end to browse outlets by Nike, Coach, and Columbia Sportswear. For a more traditional shopping experience, visit Bend’s own Macy’s store in the Bend River Promenade. The Cascade Village shopping center flanks the north end of town with big-box retailers and a charming outdoor plaza. Find more at visitbend.com/shop >>

WHERE TO EAT

IF

Bend is an adventure town, few adventures are more satisfying than a trek around the city’s renowned culinary scene. From food carts to fine dining, you’ll find something to please your palate for every meal of the day. For a scrumptious breakfast made completely from scratch, try Alpenglow Cafe in Downtown Bend, or head to Chow or Jackson’s Corner where they specialize in fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. When lunchtime rolls around, stroll to the Old Mill District and savor a plate of fresh pasta on the outdoor patio at Pastini Pastaria overlooking the Deschutes River.

CRAIG ZAGURSKI

If dinner calls for fine dining in an intimate setting, try Ariana on Galveston for outstanding cuisine with Northwest pizazz, or head to 900 Wall for modern American fare with seasonally-inspired menus using local and organic ingredients.

If you’re out on the Bend Ale Trail and want the delicious gourmet pub fare, be sure to hit Old Mill Brew Wërks for to-diefor offerings like risotto cakes and bacon-wrapped scallops.

Craving something with an Asian flair? Try Noi for the tastiest Thai you’ll ever try, or 5 Fusion for award-winning sushi and much more in a funky, urban setting.

INSIDER TIPS FROM LOCALS

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. Seeking a change of pace from malty goodness? Don’t miss Bendistillery, Oregon Spirit Distillers, and Cascade Alchemy, three small-batch distilleries reviving the tradition of premium handcrafted American distilled spirits. Taste heavenly gins made from Central Oregon’s vast juniper berries and vodkas produced with pure Cascade mountain water.

Hard cider, a naturally gluten-free alternative to beer, is taking Bend by storm with several craft cideries opening up: 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 awardwinning wineries. In fact, Central Oregon was officially recognized as a wine region in 2011. Head to Volcano Vineyards, a nano-winery, to sample their champion goods at their tasting room across from GoodLife Brewing. Travel north to Culver to Maragas Winery for some sips of award-winning wine on their outdoor patio overlooking the vineyard. Next is Faith, Hope and Charity Vineyards–a stunning 15 acres where nine varieties of hybrid grapes are growing. For samples and souvenirs, don’t forget the plethora of wine shops and wine bars in downtown, the Old Mill District, and NorthWest Crossing. Try a wine-like beverage called mead made with fermented honey and water along with a dash of hops, spices or fruit from Nectar of the Gods Meadery. Don’t miss The Local Pour tour from Wanderlust Tours, and visit a brewery, winery, and distillery all in one fell swoop. Cheers!

just swivel in your bar stool a couple times. behind you, the hop cooler. to your left, the brewdeck. Before you, an ever-changing menu of artisanal beers, based on what’s fresh out of the fermenter– or in some cases, the barrel. We’re always excited when it’s time to share a beer we’ve been aging for months on oak. Plus you’ll find great food inspired by and infused with—what else—beer.

INSPIRING EVENTS

IF

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

HOW TO MEET LIKE A PRO

There’s no better setting for team-building than Bend’s great outdoors! For a truly unique experience, Wanderlust Tours offers group outings like canoeing, caving, and snowshoeing, while The Well Traveled Fork does culinary walking tours and farm visits.

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.
