Bend

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.
Explore Bend's surroundings by going to Smith Rock State Park (in Redmond), La Pine (Quail Run Golf Course & Lava Cast Forest Trail) and Peter Skene Ogden State Park (in Terrebonne). There's much more to do: let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Deschutes National Forest, take in the dramatic natural features at Newberry National Volcanic Monument, and look and learn at Oregon Observatory.

For where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Bend trip itinerary builder site.
