Top ten place to live for a reason!

I lived in Bend for 2 years and I doubt I'll ever find as incredible a place as Bend Oregon! Its population and size was PERFECT! Big enough to have great restaurants, parks, shopping, festivals, activities like crazy and yet the city is spread out and arranged to feel small. Its also small enough you don't have city traffic or the city problem of never having any parking downtown. you also don't get the crime of a city. The place is so hopping during all the seasons from snowboarding, movies in the park, farmers markets, concerts, free stuff to do, that people hardly bother traveling! Not only that but its incredibly gorgeous surrounded in mountains, trees, parks and rivers and not far from waterfalls. Even though it snows in the winter, its still a sunny sky over 300 days a year. With all that Vit D pumping everyone in Bend is friendly and very happy and nice to be around. Top all that off with its one of the cheapest places to live I've found. Rent and buying houses is amazing!!!!
