Central Oregon is not only a destination for art lovers but a mecca for outdoor recreation, exciting dining experiences, beer tasting, shopping, and soaking up the hipster-vibes in the town of Bend. Stroll the inner-city trails along the Deschutes River, shop in the Historic Mill District, or visit numerous art galleries. Rent or bring cross-country gear or snowshoes, and explore trails just minutes away from downtown. There is so much to see and do you may need a few extra days to relax and play before or after the conference!
