About Bend Explored


Hi there!

We are Rand & Franziska.
And we are the creators of Bend Explored.

We built Bend Explored to help both, locals and visitors, explore Bend, Oregon inside and out. On this site you’ll find mouth-watering food guides featuring all the must-try places, outdoor guides with everything you need to take off on your daily adventures and much more. When we are not out exploring all the Bend has to offer, we also help families moving to Bend with our relocation services.

Perched on the eastside of the Cascade Mountains, Bend, Oregon has long been touted as one of the top outdoors town in the USA. Let’s just say there are endless options when it comes to exploring the great outdoors. If you prefer a mellow day, the city itself has plenty to enjoy—whether it’s a brewery tour, relaxing in a coffee shop, or enjoying local events.
