Downtown Bend is an incredible shopping experience. The historic district is a wonderful mix of new architecture and restored buildings housing art galleries, boutiques, gift, and specialty stores. Each month, you can admire the work of local artists as you sample fine wine during the First Friday Art Walk. You’ll absorb the rustic feel of the downtown architecture, taking a break for lunch at a memorable delicatessen and discovering exactly what you’ve been looking for, all over a panoramic view of Mirror Pond with a Cascade peak backdrop. So, why don’t you go downtown, where everything’s waiting for you?
Take a stroll around Bend, Oregon’s tribute to its timber town heritage. Fifty years ago you would’ve heard the sawmills humming and watched lumberjacks balancing on logs floating down the Deschutes river. Today, you’ll discover an exciting shopping, dining, and entertainment district called the Old Mill District. Here you’ll encounter top of the line apparel and goods, dine at nationally recognized restaurants, watch the latest blockbuster film, and have a chance to see your favorite musician perform their tunes at the Les Schwab Amphitheater. Rent a bike or a surrey to explore the paved path along the river at the pump house across from Flatbread. It’s a place where the past meets the future while celebrating the natural environment of Bend.
>> Visit the Old Mill District’s website >> The Old Mill District gift certificates are good at any store, restaurant, gallery or theater in the Old Mill District. They are even good for everything sold at the Ticket Mill including Sun Country Rafting Trips, Wanderlust Tours, and concerts.
