Bend is a fairly normal town that just happens to be a favorite vacation location of people from all over the world, and while you may know the regular facts-It’s a great ski town, the Deschutes River flows through it, and it IS the home base of one of the best vacation rental companies in the country (Yes, we’re tooting our own horn!)-the things you don’t know may make us even more fascinating. Because knowledge is power, and it’s always fun to amaze your friends with your awareness of the interesting, we’ve compiled this list of Bend Oregon facts you may not know about Bend for your educational pleasure!
Bend has led the revolution that has made beer as popular as wine, and with 22 breweries in the town alone, you never have to worry about going thirsty! Deschutes Brewery, located at 1044 NW Bond Street, is the fifth largest brewery in the world, and their selection of beers will amaze even the most jaded of travelers!
Bend is known as a vacation destination, but sometimes residents need to get away from it all. Since 1925, our championship golf course has been one of the most sought-after playing opportunities in the state. We've hosted the Oregon Open, the Northwest Open, Oregon Amateur, PNGA Women's Amateur, PNGA Mid-Amateur, and many more. And although golf is the centerpiece of the Bend Golf Club (BGC) experience, members also enjoy indoor tennis, a saltwater pool, athletic and workout facilities, and fine and casual dining.
Offering more dog-friendly businesses and off-leash play areas, we understand that your pets are family members, too! And because many of Bend Vacation Rentals accommodations allow you to bring your fur baby, you don’t have to leave the most loyal and trustworthy “child” at home!
