Central Oregon Adventures and a McMenamins Recommendation?

Jump to last reply

We are returning to Oregon to repeat our enjoyable time at Depoe Bay. In addition, we are adding on some time to further explore Central Oregon - we stayed in Bend 1 night and did the Lava River Tube, but felt the area needed more time.

Last time, we did the week in Depoe Bay plus about 10 more days driving a loop covering Astoria, Forks, Redwoods National Park, Crater Lake, Bend, Hood River. Not to repeat those - looking some recommendations for day trips from Bend, as we have 6 nights at Seventh Mountain Resort.

Specifically - some casual hikes, scenic drives, horseback rides in scenic areas, shops with old junk treasures, oddball things. Oh - and way back when, my mother had a beer business in Prineville (in her young wild days), so am doing some research to maybe capture some family history.

We have stayed a night at McMenamins in Bend, but that's not in the cards this time. Have 2-3 extra nights before we need to head home; any suggestions on your favorite Mcmenamins? Maybe wine country or Portland? I am having difficulty picking, they are such a funky concept, so hard to judge and decide.
