Bend is a great place to take your kids! There are a ton of kid and family-friendly places to go, and this summer has no shortage of restaurants and activities the kids are sure to love. The High Desert Museum is a must, with live animal exhibits inside and out. Once you check that off your list in the morning, take in the warm sunny day out at one of the many parks in Bend – Farewell Bend Park being one of the favorites! You can rent bikes from Wheel Fun at the Old Mill District to cruise there and back in time for a yummy lunch at Flatbread Pizza Kitchen (the kids can make their own pizzas here). And of course, one of the many reasons people love to visit Bend, most breweries are kid-friendly, offering games and yummy food for all, so you can enjoy a cold beer while the kids have a blast. Top off the night with dessert from Bonta Gelato, a sweet treat that will leave everyone feeling satisfied. A great day with the kids, wouldn’t you say?!
