Swivel’n The Old Mill
Sequestered near the breathtaking Cascade Mountain range, Bend Oregon is the perfect gem of a location. In winter, the snowy peaks bring people from around the world to ski and snowboard. In summer, throngs of tourists arrive to take part in kayaking, canoe and river activities, golfing, guided tours, hiking and so much more.
But Fall? Fall in Central Oregon is truly spectacular. The leaves changing color reflect brilliantly in the bright icy Deschutes River as it winds through The Old Mill District and past Downtown. It’s during this fantastic time of year that we chose to have Swivel!
While here for the conference, there is so much to see and do, and not nearly enough time for it all. So here is the ultimate cheat list, from places to eat, to fun activities, here’s what you should do while in town for Swivel!
