BEND, OREGON

Bend is Central Oregon's largest city and, despite its modest size, is the de facto metropolis of the region. The Bend-Redmond metro population was estimated at 201,769 as of August 2021. Currently, it is ranked #2 in the best Emerging Metropolitan Areas to live.

Bend is located on the eastern edge of the Cascade Range along the Deschutes River. There the Ponderosa pine forest transitions into the high desert, characterized by arid land, junipers, sagebrush, and bitterbrush. Economically, it started as a logging town, but is now identified as a gateway for many outdoor sports, including mountain biking, fishing, hiking, camping, rock climbing, white-water rafting, skiing, paragliding, and golf. In 2015, Men's Journal ranked Bend as one of The 10 Best Places to Live Now. Bend is also home to the last remaining Blockbuster Video store in the world.
