Down Town Bend Oregon

Down town Bend Oregon is one of the coolest old town areas of any city in the Pacific Northwest and possibly the United States.  Wall Street and Bond Street comprise the two one way streets down town.  Minnesota and Oregon are cross streets that finish off the core. 

The tree lined streets with cobble stone sidewalks give you a feel of the town as it could have been 75 years ago.  Beauty, fitness, clothing, accessories, entertainment, eye wear, finance, food, libations, coffee, art galleries, gifts, books, jewellery, kitchen ware and real estate services are all available for the power shopper or for the window shopper.  There are also several scheduled events.

Annual events include:
