Today Show Shout Out

Outside Magazine Editor Touts Bend to Willie and Al

Earlier in March, Outside Magazine released its “50 Trips of a Lifetime” Travel Award winners and Bend was mentioned twice: As the top Stand Up Paddling destination and home to the second best “Desert Trip.” That’s some really good press.

Even better press? When the magazine’s executive editor spends a minute talking up Bend and Tetherow to the roughly 5 million viewers of NBC’s Today Show. Thanks to Michael Roberts from Outside and to Willie Geist and Al Roker. Come on out guys – the first SUP lesson and beer is on us.
