Bend’s Old Mill District Wears Many Fun-Filled Hats
The Old Mill District, located in the heart of Bend along the Deschtes River, is a must-visit during your stay in Central Oregon.
Once the center of Bend’s thriving lumber mill operations, the area deteriorated and sat vacant until a developer stepped in to turn it around in the late 1990s. Now, it’s a beautiful and vibrant mixed-use area filled with restaurants, a movie theater, local shops and national retail chains (GAP, REI, Victoria’s Secret, etc.) There’s also lodging there with the new Hampton Inn & Suites and Hilton Garden Inn.
What else is there to do? Our friends at Travel Oregon have come up with the Top 10 Things to Do in The Old Mill District. It’s a pretty great list – and a full day of fun for you and your family. For those of drinking age, here’s a fun video on How to Happy Hour in The Old Mill.
