Bend is named to a most unusual list, and this time it's really all in fun. We're number two on Liveability.com's “Top Ten Cities to Defy Death.” Visit Bend's Doug La Placa says it is a testament to with wide variety of activities our area offers to everyone: "From a tourism perspective, Bend is an active tourism destination. And Liveability.com was basing their study on cities across the U.S. where people could play in the outdoors to the extent of defying death. And things in Central Oregon like extreme white water rafting and kayaking and rock climbing and cycling put Bend high on the list, so we're number 2." La Placa says the list is tongue-in-cheek, but it's still a designation that shows how people are drawn to the area. He says Liveability.com is a website that follows different factors that attract people to various areas of the nation and it's likely that when someone Googles "Bend, Oregon" that this website will pop up.  Or click here to read the "top Ten" list.
