Bend, Oregon, is known as the “outdoor playground of the West,” and actual paradise for the athletically gifted.
Bend sits along the Deschutes River, and boasts beautiful alpine lakes.
The town is blessed with almost 300 days of sunshine, there’s skiing on Mt. Bachelor, various alpine lakes on which to kayak or stand-up paddleboarding, fly-fishing, a river wave that can be surfed, rock climbing, golf courses, and hiking and biking trails aplenty. It’s no wonder that the town’s population has surged recently.
And that’s not all: Bend — nicknamed “Beer Town USA” and “Beervana” — boasts more than 20 breweries (which you can visit as part of an Ale Trail), giving it the honor of having the most breweries per capita in the state of Oregon.
