Quite Possibly the Strangest List Bend Has Made It On

Top outdoor destinations, check. Fastest-growing, check. But coldest?!
Bend makes its way onto a host of Top 10 and "Best" lists. The city has been listed among the fastest-growing cities in the U.S. this year, and routinely gets accolades for being among the best outdoor destinations, according to this mag or that.

Bride-to-Be on the Loose

It’s the big pre-wedding question: Where to bachelorette?
During certain times of the year, it can be difficult to walk Bond or Wall Street past sundown without seeing a parade of females dressed to the nines, the leader in a tiara and sash which reads, “Bride to be.” Bend is a hot spot for more than just Après Ski events, delicately man-scaped facial hair and dog owners.

Llama Love

Llamas are a unique and visible local farm animal. Here's one Central Oregonian's story of raising them for fiber and fun
Terri Holm considers the llamas on her three-and-a-quarter-acre Bend ranch to be more pets than livestock. "I like to say they're somewhere between a cat and a dog," she says, because while they can't exactly cuddle in your lap, they're very social, friendly and loaded with personality.

Gifting Gift Cards

Gift cards don't have to be lame. Here's how to gift them right
