If you’re planning on coming to Bend Oregon in the summer this year, get ready for a scenic time you’ll never forget. With a plethora of different activities to participate in, shops to explore, and natural landscapes to enjoy, you’ll want to go to as many of them as possible. Make sure to fit these five fun Bend Oregon summer attractions on your list:

Roundabout Art Route for Your Bend Oregon Summer Visit

The Roundabout Art Route is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and the local art scene at the same time. When you take a drive down this route, you’ll want to pick up a map first at the Bend Visitor Center to see and mark off all the installations, each a unique sculpture. This non-profit has been honored by Americans for the Arts as “one of the most innovative approaches to public art in the country.” If you bring the map back to the visitor’s center after filling it out, you’ll even get a prize!

Deschutes National Forest

Spend a day in the outdoors during the absolute loveliest time of year. Deschutes National Forest is enormous—more than 1.6 million green acres—and there are infinite ways to explore and enjoy it during your stay in Bend. Take a hike down the Deschutes River Trail, visit Tumalo Falls, check out Newberry National Volcanic Monument, go fishing, take a picnic, pick up a water sport, or visit any of the scenic byways!

Bend Scavenger Hunt Walking Tour

Like to play games, stay active, and explore the local town in an engaging and hands-on way? This game is perfect for you, then! Play on your phone, and earn your team points as you go along, solving the scavenger hunt and riddles. It’s a fun way to get around town and see the most of Bend, and there’s no better time to get outside than in the pleasant Bend Oregon summer weather.

Bend Slingshot Rental

Rent a brand new 2019 Polaris SL Slingshot, each fit for 1-2 guests (alternatively, you can rent a larger one for bigger groups). Let the Oregon wind flow through your hair as you set out on the four scenic byways. Or, take a relaxing ride around town. There is no tour guide that comes with this rental, so you’re free to go whatever your heart desires!

Bend is one of the most beautiful places you can visit in the summertime.
