The more time you spend in Bend, the more time you realize how much you enjoy being outdoors. It’s difficult to stay inside, no matter how beautiful your Bend Vacation Rentals vacation home is, when you witness the splendor of the great outdoors. The fresh clean air, rocky outcroppings, mature trees, and the river that runs through our town all combine together to create paradise that makes you feel better just by being in the midst of it all. Tumalo State Park is one of our favorite parks, and we think it may soon become yours as well!
So Much to Do!
Summers spent exploring this magnificent track of land will be some of the best hours of your trip. Hike the trails that go along the Deschutes River, feeling the sun on your back as you enjoy the marvels that surround you and watching your children wade happily in the shallower and calmer areas of the water; every adventure you participate in adds to experience.
Early mornings spent rafting down the quiet waters, feeling the coolness of the water beneath you contrasting with the warmth of the sun above you help center you and bring a smile to your heart that remains long after the vacation is over. Teaching your son or daughter the joys of casting for fish in the shallow banks, lovingly going through the tackle box of flies that once belonged to your grandfather and one day will go to that youngster sitting next to you will create memories that will last a lifetime.
On days you have too many plans and not enough hours, you can grab a quick lunch and bring it to Tumalo State Park, making time for family in the simplest and most enjoyable of ways. Some of our happiest memories involve nothing more than an hour spent at the playground, climbing, running, jumping, and laughing as the sun set overhead in a blaze of color. The dinners we shared after were amongst the best tasting we can remember. What will be your best memories of your trip to Tumalo State Park?
Things to Do in Bend
After a day at the park, you might be ready for a nice cold beer. How about several nice cold beers? Bend has more breweries than any town in the Beaver State. You can experience many of these brews on the Bend Ale Trail. Get yourself a stamp card and drink up. Stamps will earn you both brews and bling on this trail.
If you would rather eat than drink, Bend has some great restaurants. Enjoy an Indian buffet at Taj Palace or have breakfast at Ariana’s.
If it is education you seek, you may want to spend a day at the High Desert Museum. Here you will learn about the history of Bend and its role in making Oregon the fabulous state that it is today. You will get to meet some of the animals that are indigenous to the area and learn about the land they are dependent on from the many experts who staff the museum. There are several trails on the property that are all easy enough for anyone in the family. The price is very reasonable, and they have both permanent and temporary exhibits, so it is always worth a return trip.
No vacation would be complete without buying a souvenir or two. Bend has many excellent artist and art galleries where you can by a piece of pottery or a painting that will remind you of your bend vacation forever.
