Where to Stay

Where to Eat
So many options! There are even restaurants that are *not* breweries, believe it or not. For the craft brew fans, Bend is home to about 20 breweries, plus a few cideries and a distillery or two.
A great list of options is available from Where To Eat Guide (large PDF, give it a moment).
