When you’re coming to Bend as a solo traveler, you’re going to want some activities that are fun to do on your own. We’ve got you covered with a crash course on Bend activities for the solo traveler. There’s never a shortage of things to do, so here’s a few to get you started:

Visit a Museum

Museums are the perfect activity to do as a solo traveler, because you’ll be able to set your own pace and explore to your heart’s desire. Visit the High Desert Museum, a nature preserve you can find on 135 beautiful acres of forest. If you love nature and wildlife, this is the museum for you. Make sure to visit the Deschutes Historical Museum too if you have a love of history.

Explore the Newberry National Volcanic Monument

This breathtaking area will provide you views that will stand out in your memory forever. The Newberry Volcano hasn’t erupted in almost 100,000 years. The last time it did erupt, it formed the oasis-like caldera where we love to go hiking and fishing today.

Go Skiing on Mt. Bachelor

Make sure to visit the crowning jewel of Bend: Mt. Bachelor. Skiing is a great activity to do on your own, when you can take the day at your own speed, choose your own ski runs, and enjoy the company of the mountain, the snow dusted trees, and the blue sky above. You can even take skiing lessons if you’ve never done it before. Now’s as good a time as any to start!

Take a Tour of Deschutes Brewery

This brewery offers a tour every day. When you take the tour with them, you’ll get to step behind the veil of the brewing process and see how it’s all done in this historical brewery. We all know and love Deschutes Brewery, and you’ll love it too, especially with all the complimentary beer samples, plus the 19 different beers on tap.

Dine in Style

Grab a table for one at one of our favorite local bars and eateries. Make sure to visit Anthony’s at the Old Mill District, Zydeco Kitchen & Cocktails, and McKay Cottage Restaurant while you’re here in town with us.
