Bend — 7 nights

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.
Get in touch with nature at River Rafting & Tubing and Deschutes River Trail. Do some cultural sightseeing at Sunriver Nature Center and High Desert Museum. Change things up with a short trip to Tumalo Mountain in Redmond (about 34 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: explore the landscape on two wheels at Phil's Trailhead, hike along Oregon Badlands Wilderness Trails, get engrossed in the history at Des Chutes Historical Museum, and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Monkless Belgian Ales.
