When traveling to places you’ve never visited before, one of the best ways to learn about its hot spots and popular activities is simply by picking up a guidebook and reading the pages within. Guidebooks offer tips on where to find the best hiking trails, the most popular restaurants, and the top tourist attractions in the area, and these books tell thousands of other potential travelers the exact same information, meaning when you get to these treasured places, you get to share the wonders with all the other travelers who have read the same books! When you book a Bend Vacation Rentals property, however, you get more than a comfortable and stylish place to rest your head each night; you get the power of our full staff behind you, offering you a different way to see the town. Here’s our list of some of the best hidden tourist attractions Bend, Oregon has to offer!
Dudley’s Book Shop Café, 135 NW Minnesota Avenue
Coffee, snacks, and good reading material go hand in hand, and although other places may offer the same three things, they don’t have the charm and tranquility found here. This bookstore cafe offers unpretentious cups of Joe, a large variety of books of all genres, and pastries purchased from local bakeries. Spending a few hours at Dudley’s on a rainy morning may end up being the highlight of your entire Bend vacation!
The Second-Best Place to View the Sunset
The best part of any vacation is watching the sunset with the ones you love, and Pilot Butte Scenic Viewpoint is the 2nd best place to do so in all of Bend (We’ll talk about the top spot a little later!). Offering three relatively simple trails that lead to the top of the cinder cone upon which it is based, Pilot Butte is famous for its 360-degree, unobstructed views of the valley.
Snowshoeing and Night Time Bonfires are a Thing
If you don’t live in a state with a lot of snow, you probably have only seen snowshoes on television and might have difficulty imagining a nighttime hike to a bonfire in the snow. Well, not only is it real, Wanderlust Tours also offers hazelnut espresso and vodka to enjoy along with the quiet of a Bend winter’s night.
