Bend is a fairly normal town that just happens to be a favorite vacation location of people from all over the world, and while you may know the regular facts-It’s a great ski town, the Deschutes River flows through it, and it IS the home base of one of the best vacation rental companies in the country (Yes, we’re tooting our own horn!)-the things you don’t know may make us even more fascinating. Because knowledge is power, and it’s always fun to amaze your friends with your awareness of the interesting, we’ve compiled this list of Bend Oregon facts you may not know about Bend for your educational pleasure!
