About
The Old Mill District along the Deschutes River is home to Bend's premiere shopping, dining and entertainment experiences. Take in concert at the Les Schwab Amphitheater, go for a run along the Deschutes River Trail, or simply stroll from shop to shop with friends and family. The Old Mill District also boasts more than 12 riverfront restaurants that feature everything from exotic happy hours and fine dining to kid-friendly family-style meals. More than just a shopping and dining district, the Old Mill also includes a 16-screen IMAX movie theater, three art galleries, a bike rental station and a kayak/surf/stand-up paddle board shop that'll have you on the river in no time.

Summer Walk Around

Great walk around to shop and do something in the summer months. Great shops and it’s right on the river. Great place to have some drinks and food as well.

Pleasant outdoor complex of shops and restaurants
Aug 2020
Nice outdoor complex of shops and restaurants. This isn't a full blown shopping mall but there are enough shops that you can spend 30-60min browsing. If the types of shops don't grab your fancy, you can walk along the river front, as the river is right there.

really pleasant retail area
Sep 2020
the old mill district is right on the Deschutes river and restaurants have seating along the river. The river trail runs from the district for a pleasant stroll. There is a bridge across the rive leading from the Hampton Inn to the Old Mill District.

The area is kept well, pleasant to walk around in, very inviting. REI is in the building with the three distinctive smokestacks.

Very pleasant retail/restaurant area.
