      by b0riotti Online Now Jun 16, 2014 at 4:10 PM

      I'm road tripping from Seattle to Bend this summer, and expect nice weather. I will either be traveling through Portland, or around, depending on recommendations. Would love any! I hope to leave around 8am and arrive evening sometime. ( (Likely taking Interstate 5 to 84 to 26). Thanks!!

      Favorite Hikes

      by Geisha_Girl Online Now Jul 15, 2011 at 8:13 AM

      Hi VT!

      Heading up to this area for the first time and plan to stay outdoors as much as possible! I have heard there are some amazing trails but we're trying to narrow it down. Any recommendations on some of the best hikes within the Bend area? Home base will be right on the Deschutes, and we will have a car.

      We plan to make time to explore South Sister, but other than that....not sure what other hikes to include. Would love to hear some of your favorites!

      Also, any favorite restaurants for some post-hiking brew and grub? And after we clean up, any recommendations on a fine dining establishment with ambience and outstanding menu? Reading through all the reviews, but it's hard to decide!

      Thanks for your help,

      Bicycle rentals

      by ajoker Online Now Aug 6, 2007 at 7:19 PM

      I am heading to bend for the weekend in a few weeks and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on bike rentals. Google turned up a few shops at about 25 bucks a day, which is a little more than I'd prefer to pay. Cheers!

    • How's life in bend?

      by TogaParty87 Online Now Dec 6, 2004 at 7:54 PM

      I might end up moving to Bend next year, and just wanted to know what its like to live there. It looks beautiful, but also quite small, and concidering I've grown up mostly in a major metropolitan area, I don't know if I'll be able to stand it very long. Also, is it very cold there? I mean, I know it snows, but does it snow often? And when it does, or even when it doesn't, does it get to be really, really cold? Lik, freezing cold? Just any info about basic life in Bend would be awsome.
