The city of Bend:

Bend, local Flavor: or

The city is located at about 3,000 feet above sea level in the Central Oregon High Desert on the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. Bend is paradise for outdoors lovers in every season. Unfortunately, we won't be able to snowboard or ski in that time of the year at Mt. Bachelor, but we can do plenty of paddling, rafting, tubing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming (in rivers and lakes), and biking along tons of bike trails. Pilot Butte extinct volcano, old cinder cone, is a State Park inside the city and once on the top you can have a wonderful view of the dormant volcanoes Mt. Bachelor, Broken Top,Three Sisters, Mt. Jefferson, Mt. Washington, and Mt. Hood. Within a couple of hours drive you can also find Smith Rock State Park, Mt. Bachelor and the Cascades Highway, Newberry National Volcanic Monument, Crater Lake, the Painted Hills. Some of these things can be done during the meeting's breaks or if you decide to take some vacationing time before and/or after the meeting.
