Bend is one of those places that’s tough to leave once you’ve arrived. Frequently gracing “must-travel” lists, this mountain town with impressive views of the Cascade Range, 30+ craft breweries, 63 miles of urban trails including the Deschutes River Trail, 300 miles of single-track trails, and more than 80 parks and open spaces delivers a memorable experience for the whole family. Access to alpine lakes and Mt. Bachelor – the country’s 6th largest ski area -, which is open for all-season fun, including downhill mountain biking is just a short drive up the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway.
