In what could be classified as one of the worst kept secrets in destination travel, the word is out about the unique combination of outdoor recreation and cosmopolitan sophistication that make Bend, Oregon, one of the United States’ up-and-coming leisure destinations.
Few mountain towns have had as much praise heaped on them in recent years as Bend has, a testament to the former mill town turned adventure playground that has defined itself as the mountain town that’s got it all.
But rather than tell you what we think makes Bend unique and special among mountain destinations, we’ve compiled the following selection of excerpts from recent editorial features that have appeared in some of the country’s top media outlets. From USA Today to Mountain Bike, these excerpts paint a true, objective picture of all Bend has to offer.
