Bend’s real estate market might still be a bit of a bust (whose isn’t?), but that hasn’t stopped the Central Oregon gem from quietly compiling a host of new eating, drinking, and playing spots: Pono Farm, Brother Jon’s, Brasada Ranch, an expanded Deschutes Brewery, a bigger 10 Barrel Brewery, Meissner Nordic’s new shuttle service, to name a few. Plus nearby Redmond and Sunriver have both received major facelifts (a new outdoor ice rink and a $19 million community center, respectively). Should we go on? OK, fine, we will, but we’ll let the pictures do part of the talking. View our slideshow to learn more about what’s new in sunny Central Oregon.
