"Endless recreation and sunny skies are exactly as they've always been, but in the last decade Central Oregon has been utterly transformed in terms of culture. Now, top-tier restaurants, arts, theater, entertainment, classy resorts and four-star hotels round out the Central Oregon experience. Events have boomed - there's something exciting happening just about every weekend of the year, all accompanied by fine wine, gourmet food and the biggest selection of micro-brewed beer on the West Coast."
