Bend, Oregon is like a living, breathing postcard in its picturesque beauty, but it’s one you’ll be stepping right into soon. Coming here with somebody you love can be one of the best ways to experience Bend, as there are a ton of activities that are perfect for two. Here are a few romantic things to do in Bend, Oregon:
Picnic at Tumalo Falls
You’ll approach this natural wonder on a quaint gravel road, and you won’t even have to hike out to see it, which makes it easy to put anywhere in your itinerary. But if you want to, you can make a day of it, and hike to the waterfall along a trail in the summertime. No matter the time of year you come to see it, this waterfall is a sight you’ll never forget, and it’s the perfect place to sit down for a packed picnic together, one of the best romantic things to do in Bend, Oregon.
Drink in the Sights at Pilot Butte Scenic Viewpoint
Get the absolute best view of Bend and the surrounding mountains by taking a drive up to Pilot Butte Scenic Viewpoint. Pack some snacks and drinks and take some pictures together in front of the gorgeous view. Plan to go for sunrise or sunset if you want to see the Oregon sky in all its glory from the number one vantage point.
Take a Daring Adventure into a Cave
The best part about two-person vacations are the little adventures you get to take together. Rent two lanterns at the entrance to make it extra romantic, and head together into Lava River Cave. Make sure to wear jackets for that underground chill, watch your step, and feel free to hold hands if the going gets rough!
Romantic Things to Do in Bend Oregon at Old Mill District
You’ll want to spend an entire afternoon and evening at the Old Mill District, so make sure to set aside a big block of time to explore this area along Deschutes River. This district is overflowing with places to shop, dine, and enjoy unique entertainment—and you’ll probably want to do them in that order! Window shop and find your perfect souvenir, duck into an art gallery to explore, relax for a while at a local brewery, and finish out the evening at a live concert at Les Schwab Amphitheater.
