If you’ve vacationed in Bend a time or two, odds are good you’ve hit all the major tourist attractions. Drake Park, a hike to Tumalo Falls, maybe a river float or a visit to Mt. Bachelor.
While those things should be on every visitor’s Bend bucket list, it’s fun to venture outside the Westside core surrounding Downtown Bend and the Old Mill District. Here are five zones worth exploring, along with what you should see, do, and eat while you’re there!
