Bend, Oregon, is a natural playground for families and nature enthusiasts alike. Named “The 2017 Best Multi-Sport Town” by Outside Magazine, Bend has edged out tough competition to earn this impressive title. Whether you are interested in summiting extinct volcanoes, mountain biking through majestic forest, whitewater rafting, indoor and outdoor rock climbing, skiing on Mount Bachelor, or fly fishing in the Deschutes River—Bend has an activity for you. It’s no wonder that people all across the country are visiting this small town year-round. According to a 2017 visitor survey, 37% of summer tourists to bend were in-state visitors, particularly from the Portland Metro Area. However, a handful of must-see places also exist just outside of Bend’s city limits!

As a local, avid outdoorsman, and the real estate professional, Peter Lowes, is frequently asked to recommend the best places in and around Bend to clients and tourists. In 1982 Lowes moved to the United States from Scotland and began working in investment real estate with Preferred Investments in Long Beach, California. After several years, Peter moved north to Bend, Oregon—the perfect locale for this avid adventurer. Today, he is the founder of Knightsbridge Realty, a top-rated firm in the area, and TEA Together (Teaching Environmental Awareness), a scholarship program for students pursuing science and environmental studies. As a lover of all things nature, Lowes is more than happy to reveal his favorite outdoor spots with readers. So, if you are up for an awe-inspiring day trip, consider buckling up and heading to one of the exciting attractions listed below.
