There's no question that Bend is a hot tourist destination. With limitless outdoor activities just minutes away, amazing local restaurants, numerous breweries and with virtually everything kid and pet friendly, it is a haven for the good life.
Bend offers charm and a certain quaintness seldom seen today. Downtown, gorgeous hanging flower baskets frame the view of the snow-kissed Cascades and Drake Park hosts a steady stream of farmers markets, musicians and family picnics. Alongside this, Bend is still able to offer the creature comforts of larger national retailers. Nearly every good or service you could imagine is offered in Bend, meaning you’ll never be without Trader Joes, Lowes, Costco, REI, Orvis, Banana Republic or countless other national retailers.
Bend offers many opportunities for fun and has a festival for every occasion worth celebrating. Be sure to attend the Saturday Markets, Fourth of July Festival, SummerFest, Munch ‘n’ Music concerts, Jazz & Wine Festival, Oktoberfest, Christmas Parade, WinterFest, and the First Friday Art Walks!
Central Oregon's best education and medical access are in Bend, too. Central Oregon Community College is located in Bend and has partnered with numerous 4-year colleges around the state to offer Bachelor degrees. Select Masters programs are also available. The St. Charles Medical Center is located near Pilot Butte, just minutes from Pronghorn, and it offers state-of-the-art medical technology, including the most advanced heart center in the state.
For all of these reasons, many well-known companies have chosen to make Bend their home, including Deschutes Brewery, Breedlove Guitars, Glass Weld, Ruff Wear, Idatech and Nosler.
We cannot wait to welcome you!
