Bend

4.5
An old logging town at the crux of the high desert and ponderosa pine forest, Bend melds a love of the outdoors with cosmopolitan flair. The city of over 80,000 sits adjacent to a number of national forests, state parks, and designated scenic viewpoints, making it a prime spot for travelers and outdoor enthusiasts wanting to try mountain biking, kayaking, skiing, paragliding, hiking, rock climbing, and the like. The city itself showcases the surrounding natural wonders, sprawling over the land with low buildings and unassuming storefronts that contain upscale boutiques and fine cuisine. The town is known for its microbreweries. Bend is in Central Oregon. Add Bend and other United States destinations to your travel plans using our United States sightseeing planner .
