Simply the most beautiful place in the United States I've ever been. The design of the city is very modern but with a great focus on the beautiful wilderness that surrounds it. Thanks to the roundabouts through out town, traffic flows very well eliminating any rush hour congestion. The downtown area is pedestrian friendly while the entire city is extremely bicycle friendly with bike lanes on every street. While there is not a huge selection of your standard chain restaurants, Bend has several great unique places to eat and drink. The Deschute's Brewery offers both. The entire beer selection is worthy of a sample. The menu has good variety and the food is good. Warning: be careful if you order the Pepperjack Jalapeno Burger, it is not for the weak. Kayo's is your typical roadhouse style restaurant but offers a great, freshly made Strawberry Lemonade that makes it worth the visit. Despite the cold weather you get a feel of the South when meeting the warm and friendly people around town. On top of having the coolest clients I've met so far, everyone walks around town smiling at each other and exchanging greetings. Though it is a little out of the way located in central Oregon in the middle of the mountains, Bend is definitely worth a visit. There are National Forests and State Parks on the edge of the city in ever direction. Anything outdoors you want is at your fingertips with some terrific skiing that is not over crowded with tourists.
