There aren’t a lot of things more special than a summer day in Bend, Oregon. Except, perhaps, a summer day in Bend, Oregon with your most special person. Start your day with an eye-opener at Strictly Organic Coffee, then take a beautiful walk to Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe where you can pick up everything you need to paddle the Deschutes right through the Old Mill District. Reward yourself for your labors with lunch at Hola and a couple’s massage at Bend Day Spa. Wrap up your day with an early happy hour beverage and snack on the patio at Pastini Pastaria, looking out on the river, otters and all.
