Visitor's Guide: Where cool peeps go to find cool things 

  • Wyatt Gaines

You know that friend you always call whenever you're about to take a trip or try something new—the one who always seems to know the best spots to check out?

In Central Oregon, that friend's name is spelled S-C-O-U-T.

Scout is brought to you by the same people who dish out the best recommendations for food, drinks, events and fun in Central Oregon every week. The Source Weekly's staff has their fingers on the pulse of what's happening in Bend, Redmond, Sisters, Sunriver and beyond, bringing locals and visitors fresh new info every Thursday.

Let Scout, our annual visitor's guide, be like the friend who serves as your compass to what's cool in Central Oregon, finding rad spots to Eat, Drink, Go and Play. Then look for our weekly publication in the blue Source Weekly boxes you'll find all over the region, offering the most up-to-date, free information about events, concerts, shows and other stuff happening right now, during your visit.

For the past 20 years, the Source Weekly has been like that cool friend, telling people where to go to find cool things. With Scout, you've now got two friends in Central Oregon who have your back.

Look at you. You just got here, and you're making friends already.
