A warm, inviting mountain getaway with a cosmopolitan appeal is what you'll find when you arrive in the friendly town of Bend, Oregon. Majestic, snow-capped peaks adorn the high-desert skyline, making for some of the best weather in Oregon—think sun-drenched days and cool nights—along with endless options for plenty of play time. Playing at Mt. Bachelor, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, or taking a sled dog ride are just a few of the outdoor adventures you can tackle in a weekend or a week.
Dubbed the "outdoor playground of the West" for a thousand good reasons, Bend is world famous for both its outdoor pursuits and pristine beauty. You can catch an art exhibit, dine at an award-winning restaurant, spoil yourself at one of our many spas, or trek the legendary Bend Ale Trail, the largest beer trail in the west. Bend makes a great spot for family-friendly fun as well, from sleigh rides to winter tours under the stars or on snowshoes at Mt. Bachelor.
