When it comes to our Bend "Must Do" List, the time of year doesn't matter. There are a few places that will make your eyes widen and your heart beat a little faster whether it's pushing 95 or there's a foot of snow on the ground. They're such spectacular features that they can't be ruined. Smith Rock is one such place and we're lucky enough to have it in our backyard. If you're into history, geology, climbing, camping, wildlife, or hiking, Smith Rock needs to be on your list. Watch talented climbers make brave ascents on Monkey Face or hike Misery Ridge (bring water!) for some unbeatable views. Dip your toes in the Crooked River on a hot summer day or have a snowball fight under a giant rock wall in the middle of winter. The possibilities are endless and we promise you won't be disappointed whenever you choose to go. We can also provide guided tours of the area for groups!
Some other items on our list include Mt. Bachelor, Tumalo Falls, and Deschutes Brewery. Find out why on our next installment of our "Must Do" List.
