Bend
Outdoor adventurers flock to Bend for its dramatic terrain and flamboyant scenery. Nestled in the foothills of the majestic Cascades, Bend provides a natural playground for sporty travelers. Monolithic Mt. Bachelor offers up powdered slopes for skiers and snowboarders, while South Sister makes for a challenging summit climb. The mighty Deschutes River draws rafters, while mountain lakes provide serene surrounds for kayaking and canoeing. Hikers escape to miles of backcountry trails in the area.
