Located on the property of Sunriver Resort, The Oregon Observatory at Sunriver opens a door to a place you’ve never been; from far-away galaxies and incredible nebulae, to planets, their moons, and the Sun. The observatory’s mission is to “inspire present and future generations to cherish and understand our natural world” and they do so with programs and events designed for all ages. Daytime visitors can get a close look at the sun’s surface through filtered telescopes. At night, take a guided tour of the constellations and, if you’re lucky, a glimpse of meteors flashing by. Those familiar with the night sky are invited to use the observatory’s equipment after hours (generally between 11:00 p.m. and 1:00 a.m.) for a small fee to deepen their understanding and exploration of the universe around them. The observatory hosts a number of school events, summer camps, and other community outreach programs, all to ensure the world beyond is within reach. Hours of operation vary so please visit the website for a current schedule.

Share Bend This Summer

It’s in our nature to share the things we love. Especially those memories we make while on family vacation. Every summer, families get together for a long holiday weekend or a week-long adventure to bond, experience new things, and create lasting memories together. In Bend, Oregon, summer is full of exploration and adventure, with hiking and mountain biking along a popular trail, eating seasonal ingredients from the local restaurants, sipping on suds from the breweries along the Bend Ale Trail, standup paddleboarding for the first time on the Deschutes River, and dancing to the ultimate live music scene at the Les Schwab Amphitheater. This summer, share what you love. Share what counts. Share Bend. View our summer commercial
