Central Oregon is a destination of magical natural landscapes, fascinating geological wonders, and year-round activities and adventures in the high-desert towns and great outdoors. Nestled on the edge of the scenic Cascade Mountains lies the historic town of Bend and the nearby resort community of Sunriver, the best mountain towns in Central Oregon for a scenic, adventurous, and relaxing mountain getaway.
Once a small logging town, Bend is today the “mountain town that’s got it all”! An adventure travel mecca with unlimited outdoor adventures, a bustling downtown with cobblestone sidewalks and treelined streets, the hip Old Mill District for tax-free shopping and world-class dining, and a Historic District, all on the banks of the Deschutes River.
The resort community of Sunriver lies in the Deschutes National Forest only 15 miles south of Bend and boasts world-class golf, paved trails, horse riding and restaurants at the Sunriver Resort, shopping and dining at The Village, and easy access to the outdoor attractions and activities that draw visitors to Central Oregon year-round.
Whether you’re hitting the road for a last-minute summer vacation or making plans for an outdoorsy winter getaway, our Xplorie partners in Sunriver and Bend are ready to add an extra dose of fun to your Central Oregon vacation.
