My hubby and I are planning a 2 week vacation to Oregon (from Socal) in September after Labor Day. We are travelling with our 2 beagles and want to spend several days (4-5 days) around Bend. My aunt has a beach house on the coast so we are going there after to meet up with family. As a kid, I used to go to Black Butte, but I am not sure if that is the best destination for us. We want to do some outdoor activities - like hiking and river rafting. My husband is interested in the microbreweries. We want to relax likely rent a house since we have the dogs. What is better - renting in Bend or some where like Black Butte or even Sisters?
