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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Lava River Cave and Deschutes River Trail. Visiting Sahalie and Koosah Falls and Pilot Butte State Scenic Viewpoint will get you outdoors. Step out of Bend with an excursion to McKenzie Pass-Santiam Pass loop in Sisters--about 58 minutes away. There's still lots to do: get impressive views of Newberry National Volcanic Monument and admire the sheer force of Tumalo Falls.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Bend trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

San Francisco to Bend is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus; or drive. When traveling from San Francisco in July, plan for somewhat warmer days in Bend, with highs around 85°F, while nights are slightly colder with lows around 52°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Government Camp.
