Last week we talked about some of our favorite neighborhoods in Sunriver and South. Today we want to tell you about our favorite neighborhoods in our North neighbor, fast-growing Bend.


Northwest Crossing- One of the fastest growing neighborhoods in Central Oregon, and not just for living, but for dining, playing, and working. Just off Mount Washington Drive by Summit High School, you will find: beautiful neighborhoods with unique and modern designs, plenty of restaurants for all of your taste buds, parks, and fun farmer’s markets and events year round! There’s always fun to do, see and eat for the whole family in Northwest Crossing.

Downtown/ Westside- Although there isn’t much in the way of housing in downtown Bend, there’s plenty to do and eat, and downtown merges right into the westside of Bend which has some of the oldest, yet still most beautiful homes in all of Central Oregon. Some of these homes are right on the Deschutes River, most are within walking distance, so park areas are always bustling in the Summertime. You can: bike, walk, float the river,  or check out the many events in Drake Park. Check out shops in Downtown here.

Awbrey Butte- If you’re looking for views, Awbrey Butte is where you need to be! Overlooking Bend, and almost all of Central Oregon, Awbrey Butte has views from any point on the butte. There’s plenty of already- built homes, and lots to build your dream home with all the dream views!

Old Mill District- What once was just funky old buildings on the river, is now a fast-growing area. Not only is there The Shops at The Old Mill, which includes: a movie theater, food, and plenty of shopping, but just a few blocks surrounding, the whole area is becoming very popular and bustling. There’s apartments/duplexes, coffee shops, breweries, and food trucks. See what The Old Mill has to offer here.


Even if just visiting Bend for a short amount of time, we hope you have a wonderful time.
