An old logging town at the crux of the high desert and ponderosa pine forest, Bend melds a love of the outdoors with cosmopolitan flair.
You've now added Crooked River Scenic Drive to your itinerary. Start off your visit on the 24th (Sun): cruise along Crooked River Scenic Drive, then explore the activities along Hosmer Lake, and then contemplate the waterfront views at Todd Lake. On the 25th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take in the awesome beauty at South Sister and then see what you can catch with a fishing tour.

To see traveler tips, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, go to the Bend travel itinerary planner .

Portland to Bend is an approximately 3.5-hour car ride. You can also do a combination of flight and bus; or take a bus. Plan for a bit cooler nights when traveling from Portland in June since evenings lows in Bend dip to 45°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Portland.

A big city with a small-town feel, Portland is home to the country's biggest rose test garden, perched on a hill overlooking downtown.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at River Rafting & Tubing and Silver Falls State Park. Take a break from the city and head to Mount Hood and Willamette Valley. Change things up with these side-trips from Portland: Fort Clatsop National Memorial (in Astoria), Little Zigzag Falls (in Government Camp) and Hug Point State Park (in Cannon Beach). It doesn't end there: hike along Forest Park and take in nature's colorful creations at International Rose Test Garden.

For photos, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Portland online tour planner .

Traveling from Bend in June, you can expect nighttime temperatures to be somewhat warmer in Portland, with lows of 56°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
