Just so much has been going on lately. We had a beautiful few days and that was amazing. Gotta love when spring starts coming cause that means that summer is right around the corner, and Central Oregon summer activities are blooming.

Some fun facts about the Central Oregon area to get you excited about the changing seasons:
• Bend was ranked number 3 on Livability.com’s Top 10 Romantic Cities List, and also ranked number 2 on the Top 10 Death Defying Cities list
• Although it should be no surprise, Bend was ranked number 8 on The Pour Fool’s list of Best Beer Towns
• According to a Bend Oregon newsletter, “Building permits for new construction last year reached the highest mark since before the recession, Deschutes County manufacturing employment increased 6.6% between third quarter 2011 and the same quarter in 2012. Breweries, pharmaceutical-based companies and outdoor gear retailers have grown significantly.” Things seem to be turning around in the economy. Let’s keep that going!

There’s a lot abuzz in the Central Oregon area. In addition to the above rankings and facts, Bend is in the Final Four for The Best City for Pet Travelers Tournament. Click the link and vote to make Bend the dog city we already know it is. : )
