48 Hours in Bend’s Old Mill District
Named after the historic Shevlin-Hixon Lumber Company and Brooks-Scanlon Lumber Company, Bend’s Old Mill District has attracted visitors to its mixed-use retail, recreation, and dining space since it first opened in 2000. Year after year, the area continues to grow, offering even more reasons to spend the weekend in one of Central Oregon’s most historic districts.
Morning starts with a stop in for brunch (starting at 9 am) at Craft Kitchen & Brewery. The Craft French Toast or Logger Breakfast paired with a house coffee will get you fueled for the day ahead. After breakfast, head down to Wheel Fun Rentals to pick out your bike of choice: Surreys, kids bikes and trailers, tandem bikes, and tag-alongs are available to rent by the hour. Take a self-guided tour of the area along the Deschutes River or just ride from Point A to Point B inside the Old Mill District’s 270 acres.
