Are you looking for a great vacation spot to celebrate the arrival of spring? Look no further than Bend, Oregon: it’s a world-renowned outdoor sports destination, and has everything you need to make the most of the season’s warming. Check out these great Spring Break ideas in Oregon!
Make the Most of Snow and Sun
One of the best things about springtime in Bend is that you can still find snow to play in, but you won’t have to stop and warm up your frozen fingers! You can also have the unique experience of hitting the slopes in the morning, then heading down the mountain for a breezy bike ride in your shirt sleeves. Bend in springtime offers the best of both worlds!
Snow Fun in Springtime Bend
Mount Bachelor has one of the longest ski seasons in North America and is known for killer spring conditions. You can enjoy downhill skiing in the sunshine, or if that’s not your bag, head over to Snowblast Tubing Park and whiz down the hills. Additionally, if you feel like trying out something new on the snow, you can rent a fat tire bike and pedal around on the miles of snow-packed trails surrounding Bend. Or you can go ice skating at the Pavilion, an NHL-sized rink. What a great way to make the most of a long season!
Pretend It’s Summer
If you’ve had quite enough of winter weather already, turn your face to the sun instead and enjoy Bend’s great scenery as things start to warm up. Take a hike on the Deschutes River Trail, or to Steelhead Falls; waterfalls should be great this time of year, as snow starts to melt. Keep your eyes peeled for wildflowers starting to bloom!
If you’d rather ride than walk, head over to the Old Mill District and rent some unique bikes from Wheel Fun Rentals. They offer cruisers, multi-speed bikes, tandems, kids’ trailers, and the ultimate in family fun, the Surrey, which seats from three to nine people! Enjoy a spin along the Deschutes River, and you’ll almost believe that summer’s already here.
