While out enjoying one of the many area lakes over the weekend, a newly relocated Bendite fondly referred to our great city as the “melting pot”, referencing a random run-in while floating the Deschutes where her and her husband had run into some people they had grown up with in Georgia over ten years ago. As our city grows, so does the diversity of the people looking to move here. All with their own varying reasons, lifestyles and needs. Just like the people who live and work here, many of the neighborhoods in Bend have something unique and special to offer. Whether you’re into mountain views with space to enjoy or you’d rather step out your front porch to schools and coffee shops just a few feet away, Bend has a neighborhood that will make you feel at home!
