An old logging town at the crux of the high desert and ponderosa pine forest, Bend melds a love of the outdoors with cosmopolitan flair.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Sparks Lake, Todd Lake and Tumalo State Park. Get outdoors at High Desert Museum and Newberry National Volcanic Monument. Get out of town with these interesting Bend side-trips: Sisters (McKenzie Pass-Santiam Pass loop & Sahalie and Koosah Falls) and Smith Rock State Park (in Redmond). And it doesn't end there: trek along Pilot Butte State Scenic Viewpoint, tour the pleasant surroundings at Drake Park, explore the striking landscape of Deschutes National Forest, and contemplate the waterfront views at Hosmer Lake.
