Fantastic dining experiences are around every corner, and as a Bend local I’d recommend quite a few.
“Staccato” is located in an old brick firehouse with a warm and trendy atmosphere – and their northern Italian cuisine is out of this world.
Of course, for a touch of old Bend and some down-home cooking, “The Pine Tavern” can’t be beat. Located right on the edge of Drake Park this restaurant has one of the best views around.
“Typhoon!” has excellent Thai food, and if you’re in the mood for fresh guacamole prepared right at your table then you have to visit “La Rosa.”
A little about Downtown-
Shops, businesses and wonderful restaurants line both sides of Bend’s two main streets, Wall and Bond. Many of the buildings have facades dating back to the early 1900’s, and new storefronts compliments the old, blending in with amazing harmony.
Things to do downtown-
Bend’s Saturday market is located across from the Library between Wall and Bond and offers unique Central Oregon products. If shopping’s not your cup of tea, downtown Bend also has outdoor entertainment at Drake park several nights each week and there are plenty of theaters and art galleries to explore as well.
For an interactive history lesson, just walk the streets of the Historic District. Many of these homes were built by the founders of Bend: railroad tycoons, the owners of the Shevlin-Hixon Mill, the founders of the newspaper, and Bend’s first political figures once lived in these homes.
With plaques along the sidewalk that describe each home’s history, you could easily spend an afternoon walking, learning, and enjoying the beautiful architecture.
Bend rests in the very center of Oregon, a state with a varied yet amiable climate. To the east is a desert-like plateau and to the west are the Cascade Mountains and a large pine forest leaving Bend in the middle with the best of both worlds. Bend is an area of diverse geological wonders. The lava fields of Newberry Crater and the wonderous rock formations of Smith Rock and the Pallisades, are small examples of the region’s geological diversity. Temperatures are mild with dry sunny days and cool nights.
Ski and snowboard in the winter or hike in the summer on Mount Bachelor’s many splendid trails. Visit downtown Bend for theatres, shops, art galleries, and restaurants. Enjoy live music venues or have a beer at one of six micro-breweries.
