VIDEO | Community Spotlight: Bend, Oregon – SUMMER

Why we love Bend, Oregon

Bend is the mountain town that has it all. A former mill town turned adventure playground, Bend is often featured on a ‘best places’ list for its famed world-class recreation, outdoor adventures, diverse landscape, and award-winning drinks and dining.

Bend is an outdoor enthusiast hub with a bit of urban cool. Touting titles like BeerTown and DogTown USA, Bend is one of those places that’s tough to leave once you’ve arrived. Visit Central Oregon

Whether you’re dipping a paddle into the crystal-clear waters of the Deschutes River, sipping a frosted pint of your favorite craft brew, or plunging into the frosty unknown on a pair of snowshoes, Bend has a way of putting you at ease and in awe all at the same time.Visit Bend


Bend is a mecca for those with a thrill-seeking passion and an entrepreneurial spirit
