Bend

Trip Planner USA  /  Oregon  /  Central Oregon  /  Bend
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. Our United States tourist route planner allows you to plan your trip to Bend and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
