Men's Journal

By Jason Boone

If you’re searching for a reason to visit Bend Oregon why not consider that the city was recently ranked number 4 on the Men’s Journal “Best Places to Live Now” list.

Men’s Journal is one of the top magazines which covers the latest and best information for travel, health & fitness, food & drink plus style so this list is certainly great publicity for Bend especially considering the fact that Portland Oregon ranked number 3 on the same list.

Ranking Criteria

Contrary to public opinion, these lists are not made by people sitting around in a board room somewhere, the Men’s Journal Best Places to Live Now list was compiled after surveying their readers from across the United States about where are the best places to live nationwide.

The Men’s Journal survey included criteria like: cost of living, average commute time, population growth and average days of sunshine per year.

What Really Makes Bend Cool

All of the cities ranked on the Men’s Journal “Best Places to Live Now” list are great cities but, what really makes Bend stand out as a cool city includes the following:

  • Recreational Opportunities – We have year round recreational opportunities which include hiking, biking, camping, skiing, fishing, paddle boarding, canoeing and so much more.
  • Breweries – Bend has some of the very best breweries in the United States like Deschutes Brewery.
  • Weather – There’s no better place than Bend to visit all year long because we enjoy moderate weather here.
  • Jobs – Our city has enjoyed robust job growth over the last 24 months and that’s only predicted to continue.
