Each year thousands of visitors descend upon Bend, Oregon for an exciting vacation getaway like no other. It is no secret that Bend continues to be a highlight destination among the Pacific Northwest. If you are still on the fence, here are the top reasons why you should visit Bend:
While the Pacific Northwest is known for its abundancy of rain, that is not the case for Bend. This Oregon town is located just west of the Cascade Mountains and has more than 300 days of sunshine each year. The arid climate is the perfect excuse to get outside and see the majestic wilderness surrounding the area. The summers never get too hot with the highs averaging around 82 degrees, and winters are perfect for ski-worthy snowfall.
Outdoor All the Time
Saying Bend is an outdoor enthusiast’s playground is an understatement. The Deschutes National Forest offers plenty of space to enjoy hiking, biking, and all other outdoor activities. Head over to the Deschutes River for incredible fishing and kayaking in its crystal blue water.
The Skiing Life
Bend is also known for its winter sports, including skiing and snowboarding. The temperatures during the winter are more than bearable and bring plenty of snow to Mt. Bachelor. Enjoy other winter sport activities including snowshoeing, snow tubing, and even dog sledding at this nearby summit.
