Known as a gateway for mountain biking, skiing, rock climbing and other outdoor sports, this scenic Oregon city has attracted more than 40,000 adventurous residents in the last decade. Initially a logging town, Bend has since become a hotspot for entrepreneurs in technology, biosciences, renewable energy and other fields.
