Avoid the hustle of another family get-together this upcoming Thanksgiving and instead, plan a Bend Oregon fall getaway. If you love the outdoors, dining and shopping, and just having fun, make sure Bend is your next Thanksgiving destination.

Explore the Outdoors

Occasionally Mt. Bachelor will have just enough snow in time for Thanksgiving. If so, head up the mountain for some of the best slopes in all of Central Oregon. The rental shop has all the gear you need for an unplanned skiing adventure. If the season is warmer than expected, you can find miles upon miles of hiking trails surrounding Bend. Whether you are a runner or a mountain biker, these trails are calling out your name.

Participate in the I Like Pie Thanksgiving Day Run

Do not worry about the Thanksgiving Day meal calories when you start the morning off with the I Like Pie Thanksgiving Day Run. This timed race features 5K and 10K runs that you can run or walk on this cheerful holiday in Bend Oregon. The whole family can join in on the fun with the 1.5k Family Run that is perfect for the children to walk.

Shop the Deals this Holiday in Bend

We know you cannot miss out on Black Friday to start your holiday shopping. The Old Mill District will have the deals you need the day after Thanksgiving. You can shop around big-name stores that offer incredible deals but without the insane morning hours of Black Friday. Additional shopping can be done at Bend Factory Stores, where you can find a plethora of outlet stores that you let get incredible savings on big-name items. If you wish to help out the locals, downtown Bend will be hosting Small Business Saturday where local vendors will be on display with their unique merchandise.

Thanksgiving Day Dinner

If you do not plan on preparing your own Thanksgiving Day dinner at your vacation rental, there are plenty of restaurants in town that will host you. One of the most popular options is the McMenamins Old St. Francis Thanksgiving Buffet that is available from noon to 6:00pm. Greg’s Grill also features a mouthwatering menu of Thanksgiving turkey, prime rib, coho salmon, and much more.
