Volcano, and along Tumelo Falls are always fun places to go for hiking, mountain biking, and picnics. The Lava River Cave near the Newberry Volcano is a fascinating place to explore, stretching over 5000 feet, making it the largest volcanic tube in Oregon.
A True Winter Wonderland
Each winter, the Cascades transform from a sunny escape into a snowy wonderland. Mt. Bachelor is the nearest hub for downhill skiing, dog sledding, and other winter sports but you'll also find snowshoe trails, skating rinks, and sledding hills all around Bend.
Bend timeshares are a great choice if you are looking for a family vacation. The outdoor activities let you share fun and adventures together while making memories to last a lifetime. Additionally, you'll want to stop by the Goody's Chocolate and Ice Cream Factory Tour to satisfy the family's sweet tooth. Follow it up with a trip to the High Desert Museum, which has a make-believe high desert habitat designed for children, live animals, and even an authentic American West stagecoach.
Craft Breweries and More
Evening activities in Bend are filled with craft brews, live music, and sweeping sunsets. The Pilot Butte cinder cone is an especially good place to watch the snow turn gold at sunset. For live music, you'll have places like the Les Schwab Amphitheater, which has hosted famous bands, local legends, and the annual Brewfest in August. For a culinary experience, try the Deschutes Brewery Tour, or learn about organic and sustainable farming with the Well Traveled Fork tour. The restaurants and bars of downtown Bend will put the perfect cap on a long day, allowing you to relax and enjoy the urbane atmosphere after time in the great outdoors.
The busiest season for Bend timeshares runs in the summer from June through August, and again during ski season January through March. Tourism slows down in the late spring and fall, so you can often find clear trails and great deals in those months.
