Things to See and Do in Central Oregon

Central Oregon is the Place for your Favorite Pursuit

Welcome to Central Oregon, home to the growing cities of Bend, Redmond, Sisters, Prineville and Madras and the resort community of Sunriver. Here you will find some of the finest places for paddling, hiking, cycling, golfing and dining al fresco in the summer. In winter, areas of the High Desert turn into a snowy playground with skiing, snowboarding, sledding and ice skating. It doesn't hurt that, whatever the season, Central Oregon is home to some of the country's top craft breweries, unique boutiques for tax-free shopping, world-class restaurants and accommodations to please every lifestyle and budget.
