How About a Vacation in Oregon this Year!

Downtown Bend, Oregon. Our Famous Tower Theatre

Looking for an affordable and fun vacation this year? How about considering Oregon, even better how about Bend, Oregon. It really is so beautiful here and with our economy being so down, you might want to consider staying in the US instead of flying out. We are still a decent drive but..road trips are good family events. It seems to me that we get to know our families a little more being stuck in a car for a few hours..come on now! Besides, Bend host some the most famous breweries in the Pacific have to come try it.

One of our many many hidden lakes for canoeing, kayaking or fishing!

Central Oregon has a lot to offer year round. In the winter we love to ski at Mt.Bachelor. I have had the opportunity to get to ski for $29 midweek this year at the 6th largest ski resort in the US. You can check out their website to get a better idea of how majestic this mountain really is. We also have snow shoeing, snow mobiling, cross country skiing, dog sled events, and sledding and so much more..I can't think of it all.

Mt. Bachelor is the 6th largest ski resort in the US!

In the summer, we offer lots of great camping. Oh gosh the camping is endless here. World class fly fishing, boating, jet skiing, water skiing, hiking, gathering, and mountain bike riding. By the way many world athletes come to practice triathlons here - swimming, running and biking because of our incredible environment. And, even hunting is a sport around here. (not mine though)

Oregon in general is just a great state all together. If you have time, stop in Sisters, Oregon. Every year they have the most wonderful Quilt Show and the best darn Rodeo. This is where the true cowboys live in the West. Right here 30 miles away from me.

Silver Falls, Oregon

We have some incredible forest for hiking and beautiful waterfalls everywhere in Oregon..some right in Central Oregon and of course closer to Portland. This is a picture of Silver Falls and you can see the tiny people walking behind this waterfall...truly beautiful. Oh yes, we also have a lot of great berries to eat and pick here. We have the best strawberries in the world, blackberries, raspberries, huckleberries, and even the wild blueberry. Yes, we need your help picking...come on up and enjoy Oregon!

My husband and I have actually been wanting to take a vacation to Bend for quite sometime! When we do finally make it there (hopefully this summer) it looks like there will be plenty of activities for us to do. I've never heard of Silver Falls before, but it looks beautiful!

Wondeful article about our hometown, Bend. I'd like to add to your list of fun summer activities. The Central Oregon Saturday Market is held every Saturday starting with the annual two day kick off show on Memorial Day Weekend, May 23 & 24 2009. The season runs through September 19, 2009. You will find it downtown across from the public library. The only Saturday it isn't running is the weekend of July 11 & 12, 2009 when the Bend Summerfest is held in downtown Bend. And of course starting Thurday, July 10 2009 through August 14, 2009 every Thursday evening is Munch N' Music. About three hours of music, food and crafts.

i read a book by terri jentz called "strange piece of paradise." have you read it? she was one of the 2 girls that was axed in a park in bend, or in 1976.

it was a fascinating book. Dick Damm was the axist.I wonder if he still lives there.
