I have been to many places across the United States. I have to say that I have been to some of the most beautiful and interesting places but no place can truly match the beauty and excitement that Bend, Oregon has to offer.
I am originally from the east coast in South Carolina. One of my best friends lives in Bend, Oregon, so I decided to visit her. It was my first time visiting the west coast when I went to Bend, Oregon, and wow, was I amazed. The city of Bend is small; however, it provided a lot of entertainment and activities. One of my favorite places to go while I was in Bend, Oregon was one of the many malls there, the Bend River Promenade. Bend, Oregon also has some of the best restaurants. While I visited Bend, Oregon, my friend and I went to River Rock Grill. At River Rock Grill they had great food (they have an awesome vegetarian menu) and live music.
I liked Bend, Oregon so much that I decided to seek a job there and move away from South Carolina to Bend. So far, I enjoy living here in Bend. The people are friendly, the city itself has a lot of things to do, and I enjoy exploring the hiking trails (there is one I really enjoy located at Pilot Butte State Park) in Bend. Although I do enjoy living here in Bend, I have to say that sometimes the weather is extremely cold in the winter and extremely hot in the summer.
