Why Go To Redmond
Redmond may be one of Oregon's small towns, but don't let its size fool you. Nestled in between the Deschutes and Ochoco national forests, it makes the perfect starting point for any vacation. With easy access to mountains, rivers, and lively High Desert towns, the chance to explore Oregon's outdoor wonders is never too far away.
What To Do
If you're an avid cyclist, Redmond is for you. The city offers close proximity to a wide variety of biking trails including the Radlands 8-mile long trail complex system and the Sisters to Smith Rock Scenic Bikeway which spans more than 35 miles of paths. Both offer spectacular mountain and high desert views.
Whether you're in the mood for hiking, biking, sightseeing, kayaking, or rock climbing, you'll find it all near Redmond. Smith Rock State Park is high at the top of the list of must-see spots and is home to an average of 300 sunny days per year. Outside the park, there are plenty of chances to enjoy the scenery of the High Desert, too, including the Deschutes River, Dry Canyon, or Cline Butte, just to name a few.
Take a Trip to Bend
Redmond also makes the perfect home base to explore many of Central Oregon's other great cities. Most notably, Bend is less than a 30-minute drive away and is dubbed "the outdoor playground of the West". It has easy access to the snowcapped peaks of the Cascade Mountains, ancient lava tubes, art galleries, excellent dining options, and the Ale Trail, the largest beer trail in Oregon. It's also home to the famous Deschutes Brewery,
Head under the Redmond archway into downtown, and you'll find a surprising collection of boutiques and shops lining the city's charming streets. From bookstores to clothing and antiques to souvenirs, you'll find something for just about everyone in the group.
Despite the town's small size, its dining scene comes with big flavors. In fact, we'd argue the small size plays in your favor as you can find a world of culinary options within a few short blocks. You'll find fantastic sushi, delicious Mexican cuisine, surf and turf, and some good old-fashioned Northwest pub grub, too.
Redmond itself is fairly quiet when it comes to nightlife, but if relaxing over a pint is your idea of a night on the town, you're all set. Post up at the hometown favorite Cascade Lakes Brewing Company's 7th Street Brew House and enjoy their indoor/outdoor atmosphere and fire pit. For a more lively atmosphere, head to the nearby city of Bend for live music venues, martini bars, and an even longer list of microbreweries.
