We first visited Bend, Oregon last February and fell in love with the town! There is SO much to do. Obviously our favorite is the skiing and snowboarding at Mount Bachelor but coming in at a close second is the food and beer! When we arrived this February for our second trip we were shocked to see how many people were out visiting all of the stores, we also were confused as to why the gift shops were open so late...but we were happy! Someone kindly informed us the First Friday of every month is an art walk! Shops stay open late, you can check out a ton of artwork, and there is wine involved! We loved it! We grabbed dinner at 900 Wall and had oysters! We went to bed early because we had an early day on Mount Bachelor ahead of us!
It was a snowy day but so much fresh pow was coming down on Mount Bachelor! We had a blast but couldn't wait to ski on Sunday because it was dumping snow all day Saturday. When we left the mountain we decided to hit one of the places near and dear to all of our hearts...the last Blockbuster ON THE PLANET. Yes...it's in Bend, Oregon. The nostalgia you feel in that store is incredible. While neither of us rented a movie (yes, you can do that!) we bought souvenirs!
After visiting Blockbuster we headed to Riff where we got fun drinks before heading to some stores and an old-timey candy shop.
For dinner we went to Jackalope which had INCREDIBLE food and drinks. Anthony got a purple martini and tried to be a flood blogger!
