If you want to take a break from skiing or other adventure sports that the town of Bend offers and will like to spend a day in town taking 'retail therapy', relaxing or enjoying any of the loads of entertainment and leisure options that the town offers, then the Old Mill District along the Deschutes River is your definite go-to place.
The old district has been repurposed as the premier shopping and entertainment venue of the town. You may spend the afternoon surfing or kayaking at the beautiful Bend Whitewater Park or take your kids to the scenic Farewell End Park and enjoy a great family holiday.
