What to Do for Fun in Bend
In Bend, getting outside is essential to the experience. There are dozens of beautiful natural locales where you can breathe in fresh mountain air, go caving down lava tubes, or simply hike, golf, bike, ski, snowboard, or snowshoe in the serene atmosphere of quiet forests and striking mountain peaks. Visit places like Mt. Bachelor, the Lava River Cave at Newberry National Volcanic Monument, Awbrey Glen Golf Club, Pilot Butte, and the Deschutes National Forest.
For history buffs and science enthusiasts, Bend also has a variety of museums that delve into the local culture and history (natural and otherwise) of the area. The Deschutes Historical Museum is housed within the historic Reid School in Bend, while the High Desert Museum is located about five minutes south of downtown Bend and features interactive exhibits on the wildlife and culture of Eastern Oregon and the high desert.
Bend is also renowned for its collection of craft microbreweries, collectively known as the Bend Ale Trail. You can pick up a Bend Ale Trail passport from the Visitor’s Center or any souvenir stand, then make your way through the trail of breweries sampling their delectable craft beer. A tip: be safe and responsible by either walking the tour trail or going on a brewery tour where someone else drives, like the Bend Brew Bus. Breweries here include notable names like Deschutes Brewery, Bend Brewing Company, and 10 Barrel Brewing Co.
Between soaking up the sightseeing and activities that Bend has to offer, you can stop for a bite to eat at one of the many delicious restaurants that call the city home. Pine Tavern Restaurant is a classic eatery that has been open since 1936, while Spork is a modern fusion restaurant specializing in Mexican and Asian food. McKay Cottage Restaurant is a great place to start your morning, while Zydeco Kitchen & Cocktails will satisfy your Cajun craving. Get your coffee fix at The Sparrow Bakery or Backporch Coffee Roasters.
