Factory Tours in Bend, Oregon

Bend has made it to the top of many "best of" lists in the past decades, but most recently this bustling mountain town has been recognized as a vibrant center for business. Those seeking a superb quality of life have found that you don't have to sacrifice the amenities of the big city, even when you live minutes from the recreational splendor of the Deschutes National Forest.

From breweries to skin care, solar panel companies to manufactured home builders, Bend, Oregon offers a myriad of factory tours that demonstrate the post-timber era prosperity that has kept the city booming long after the mills shut their doors.

The following is a list of highlights to hit on your factory tour of Bend. Many other businesses will gladly show visitors around by appointment.


The ultimate beer tour in Bend is the Bend Ale Trail. You can tour all of the breweries in Bend where the object is to collect a stamp from each one to win a prize provided by the Bend Visitor Center in downtown.

Chocolate & Ice Cream Tours by Goody's

Goody's has been a home town favorite in Central Oregon for ​more than 30 years. Their homemade chocolates and ice cream have made many of my summer -- and winter -- days, and they're easy to find with locations in downtown Bend, the east side of Bend, Sunriver, and Redmond. Daily tours are available at their newest location at the corner of Reed Market Road and Division St​reet in Bend.

The Bulletin

Watch as the gigantic presses at The Bulletin building churn out 30,000 newspapers an hour. Trace The Bulletin's history through the photographs that line the expansive great hall, which was designed with the old Bend lumber mills in mind. The building itself was constructed of lava rock from the surrounding volcanic landscape and the floor to ceiling windows in the lobby demonstrate an architectural reverence for the gorgeous Central Oregon landscape.
