It's not a secret anymore... the word is out about the unique combination of outdoor recreation and cosmopolitan sophistication that make Bend, Oregon, one of the United States’ number one leisure destinations.
The city is the recreation, culture, education, medical and commercial heart of the region. It is said that things come together in Bend and form perfection. The Ponderosa Pine forest transitions into the high desert. Mountains meet lakes. Retirees live next to young families. Ranchers socialize with techies. Bend has a reputation as a tourist destination, but it’s an even better place to live. It’s still small enough that you know your neighbors, but big enough to host cosmopolitan amenities. The region’s natural splendor and recreation opportunities are always obvious. Where else can one ski a world-class mountain in the morning and golf a championship course in the afternoon and go to work in between?
