Technically, it’s not Heaven.
But by all accounts, Bend is a very healthy slice of it.
To say you can do it all in Bend would not be hyperbole. It offers a rare congregation of natural splendor and urban amenities, enhanced by a very recreation-friendly, four-season climate featuring an average of 300 days of sunshine a year.
Active people from all walks of life – young professionals with families, international athletes and recent retirees – choose to live here. Not because it’s the best place in the world at one particular thing. But because it does so many things extremely well.
Here’s a small sampling of how highly rated Bend has become these days:

Of course, all that recreation is sure to work up an appetite. So it’s a good thing that Bend is also famous for mouthwatering cuisine and an endless variety of microbreweries. Shops and galleries line the streets and a robust calendar of concerts and festivals guarantee its consistent ranking among the top places to live in the country.
