Things To Do In Bend, Oregon

From tubing to hiking to breweries we have you covered! Come see all the fun you can have when you visit Bend!

You can’t come to bend and not float the river! Float down the Deschutes River and through the Mill District to the man made whitewater channel which is perfect for tubes.

Float the  Deschutes River

Stealhead Falls

These beautiful waterfalls are a great place to go cliff jumping! With amazing views of the waterfall as you take the 20 foot leap!!


This is a beautiful park on the river where events are held or you can just stop to hang out. We bought food and brought it down there with chairs and a blanket and hung out for a few hours.

You can’t go to Bend and not visit the last Blockbuster! This is the last Blockbuster in the world and you can go in and rent movies just like in the old days!

The Last Blockbuster

Smith Rock  State Park

Named the best state park in Utah and for good reason! We did the misery ridge trail where we walked up to the top of the ridge and had amazing views all around us.

Obsidian Flow Trail

A 1 mile hiking trail, in the Newberry National Volcanic Monument, it takes you through a field of obsidian & pumice! The Big Obsidian Flow is the youngest lava flow in Oregon.

Our kids LOVED these!! They are natural water slides in the river. There are 2 different slides you can do!

La Pine Natural Slides


There are so many good breweries and cider places to try in downtown Bend and the surrounding area! Be sure to check out the Deschutes Brewery and the Bend Ale Trail.
