The awesome food scene in Bend is the focus of a large spread in Sunset Magazine this month. Bend won the "Most Food Focused Ski Town Award" in Sunset Magazine. Magazine editors looked at 70 different ski towns for their "Best Ski Towns of the West" edition. PR Director, Dana Smith says the writers and editors had to experience all 70 places before giving the awards: “Then, we all talked amongst ourselves. And we chose categories that would make people want to travel to those towns; and we even talked to people who didn't ski. We wanted places that had an epic western backdrop, but we wanted them to really express what's important to people who are traveling around the west, and when it came to Bend, food really set it apart." There are ten total categories; some of the other topics include: The Most Relaxed, The Prettiest, and The Most Charming.

Sunset Magazine has about 5 million readers.  Smith says this article may help bring more tourists to Central Oregon.
