WHERE TO dinE
Ask any of our staff and they'll be able to recommend a restaurant or food truck fitting the desires of your taste buds. But if we have to pick some favorites...
We consistently partner with Wild Oregon Foods for special catered tours. They're amazing for any meal, but we're especially fond of their amazing brunches!
Wild Rose is a unanimous staff favorite, and consistently voted the best Thai food in Bend. Check out their amazing lunch specials!
For the perfect day of eating, check out our blog on the "Best Day in Bend."
WHERE TO Stay
Whether you're more at home setting up a hammock in the forest or by a fire at a cozy resort, Bend has plenty of places to call "home" during your trip...
Riverhouse on the Deschutes is located right on a beautiful section of the river, with great food and live music!
Doubletree by Hilton has excellent service and accommodations right in the heart of downtown Bend!
If you're looking for a more rustic experience (or have a fully-outfitted camper van), a campsite just outside of town will be the perfect place to rest your head. Tumalo State Park is a beautiful option.
WHERE TO Play
Obviously, Wanderlust Tours is a great way to experience the natural splendors of Central Oregon. Whether you're looking to paddle on the Cascade Lakes, explore wild caves, or venture into an ancient volcano, there's something for all ages and ability levels. But if you're looking for a little something more while you're in town, we can suggest...
And of course, there's plenty of opportunity for adventure on the trails, rivers, and mountains of beautiful Central Oregon. You can float the river, surf the standing wave, visit some of our 20+ breweries, or just take in the majestic scenery surrounding Bend. We love to call this place home, and we hope you'll love it, too!
