Bend makes a great spot for family-friendly fun as well, from cool cave tours in some of Bend’s ancient lava tubes to watching raptors soar at the High Desert Museum.
With a population of around 100,000, we’re a small city or big town, depending on perspective. Big enough to have great restaurants and other amenities, small enough that everyone is friendly. We are a community of entrepreneurs, outdoor enthusiasts, community activists, and families.
In the geographic center of Oregon, Bend is nestled between the eastern side of the Cascades and the high desert, so we have a dry, high-desert climate with generally moderate days and cool nights. Located at 3,623’ above sea level, we’re just 175 miles from Portland, 22 miles from Mount Bachelor and 15 miles from Roberts Field RDM airport, and the town is surrounded by public lands allowing for endless outdoor recreation.
