Bend is all outdoors all the time. So, if you're a fan of fishing, hiking, rock climbing, white-water rafting, golf or skiing, then you've found your ideal destination. You'll never be short on things to do with your time off. And if the adventures aren't enough to keep you happy, then feel free to indulge in a tour or tasting at one of the many breweries and distilleries that populate the city.
Food for Thought
Zydeco Kitchen & Cocktails – Downtown Bend is better for the addition of Zydeco Kitchen & Cocktails. Serving up American cuisine with a Cajun flare, the menu is comfort food with a couple of lighter options (roasted beet salad, yum). And, if you’re a fan of good jambalaya, then you’ll need to give Zydeco a try.
Looney Bean Coffee – One of the first things any travel nurse should do when they get to town is to find the best coffee place around. That is exactly what you’ll find at Looney Bean. Fresh coffee paired with a great breakfast menu that is made even better with an amazing backyard to sit and enjoy your meal.
Newberry National Volcanic Monument – A breathtaking outdoor adventure that is perfect for a weekend camping getaway. Escape to the natural beauty and enjoying a couple days of animal watching, hiking and fishing. Save up your energy for a three-mile hike up to the volcano, you won’t regret it.
