Owner description: The Old Mill District along the Deschutes River is home to Bend's premiere shopping, dining and entertainment experiences. Take in concert at the Les Schwab Amphitheater, go for a run along the Deschutes River Trail, or simply stroll from shop to shop with friends and family. The Old Mill District also boasts more than 12 riverfront restaurants that feature everything from exotic happy hours and fine dining to kid-friendly family-style meals. More than just a shopping and dining district, the Old Mill also includes a 16-screen IMAX movie theater, three art galleries, a bike rental station and a kayak/surf/stand-up paddle board shop that'll have you on the river in no time. Coming to Central Oregon during the holidays? Don't miss our one-of-a-kind Santaland and roving carolers throughout the Old Mill. We also provide free horse carriage rides to help visitors tap into their holiday cheer!

Lots of shops, restaurant and super fun things to do here. What a great use of space with the river running by, beautiful mountains and super friendly people.

When in Bend we usually stay close to the Old Mill District. It is a fun place for a stroll and I love looking at everybody floating down the river. There are some eclectic shops and a few high end clothing stores. REI is always fun to check out.

We go to the Old Mill District from time to time for something different to do. Sometimes it's a wine tasting session at Naked Winery, other times it's for shopping or a meal. We like to walk our dog along the outdoor walkways, across the bridge, and through the park, and then loop back for a coffee some mornings at Strictly Organic. My favorite store is Ginger's Kitchen and a close second is Savory Spice almost next door. Some of the stores are pricey, but it's always fun to window shop, get ideas, go to a movie occasionally and enjoy a good meal (or Happy Hour) once in a while at the Old Mill.
