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.
Visiting Mt. Bachelor Ski Area and Pilot Butte State Scenic Viewpoint will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Bend: Sisters (Hoodoo Ski Area, McKenzie Pass-Santiam Pass loop, & more), Blue River (Dee Wright Observatory & Cougar Hot Springs) and Redmond (Smith Rock State Park & Tumalo Mountain). Next up on the itinerary: explore the world behind art at High Desert Museum, Head underground at Lava River Cave, explore the activities along Deschutes River, and grab your bike and head to Trail to Benham Falls.

In December, plan for daily highs up to 40°F, and evening lows to 22°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
