Situated between high-desert plains and tall peaks of the Cascade Range, Bend spans the Deschutes River for opportunities to fish, hike, camp, ski, mountain bike and go whitewater rafting. About 300 days of sunshine a year grace the Bend community, and other attractions include more than a dozen golf courses, microbreweries and a downtown district with independent restaurants and fashion boutiques.
