Bend, Oregon is one of our favorite towns from 2013 and one we consider to be almost perfect.  They have everything we look for in a city.  A vibrant downtown, great farmers markets, an endless array of outdoor activities, lovely campgrounds, great eateries and loads of great beer. The city is jam packed with craft breweries; 11 of them and growing!  They claim to have more breweries per capita than any other city in Oregon and even garnered the title ofBeer Town USA because it 's you versus beer in Bend”.  Which we absolutely took as a challenge! bend ale trail
