DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT SUMMER DAY IN BEND.
There are so many ‘perfect day’ possibilities in Bend, but for me, a perfect summer day right now starts with a run with my kiddos along the Deschutes river trail, followed by brunch at Sparrow Bakery in Northwest Crossing. In the middle of the day, I would take our paddle boards out and cruise up the Deschutes with my husband for an hour or two. And of course, end the day picking up some grub from the Lot (I love the Real Food cart), and eating dinner on the grass at Harmon Playground, while watching my daughter and son run around.
