Bend is nearly the geographic center of the state, and with a population of over 82,000 is the most populated city in Central Oregon.
Bend, the county seat of Deschutes County, covers 32 square miles. To the east is high desert vegetation and to the west, Bend is surrounded by U.S. Forest Service land. The city is noted for its scenic setting, mild climate, year-round recreation opportunities and growing economy. At an elevation of 3,625 feet, Bend enjoys the predominately dry climate of the Great Basin. Sunny days, cool nights and low humidity characterize the weather.
Farewell Bend, as it was once known, has come a long way since settlers named the picturesque city in Central Oregon. The name was later changed simply to "Bend" by the U.S. Postmaster who felt the name was too long. Bend has grown from a simple lumber settlement, to the thriving and vibrant urban center it is today with a rich cultural life.
