Moving Soon? Popular Northwest Communities, in Which We Build, For Outdoorsy People

If nature is your paradise, then the Northwest is calling for you. Here in the Northwest, nature is not only abundant, but it’s a place where spending time outdoors in our gorgeous surroundings is a strong community value. Furthermore, the Northwest has some of the most outdoor-centric communities in the entire country. Here are some great choices in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho that you may want to consider for your future home, especially if you’re looking for popular northwest communities for outdoorsy people.


Bend, Oregon

Bend is the ideal place for someone who wants to enjoy some of the luxuries of a big city (you’ll be wowed by the food and art here), but also wants to escape into the hills for some R&R on a regular basis. With the Cascade mountains nearby, Bend is equipped for nearly every outdoor activity you can imagine. No matter what your outdoor passions are, you’re almost guaranteed to find prime opportunities just a short drive away.

Spokane WA Great city for Outdoorsy people

Spokane, Washington

Spokane is a city with a long list of accolades including an excellent school system and inexpensive cost of living. It’s small enough to where people know their neighbors, but big enough to have drawn in a wide array of restaurants and entertainment options that you’re sure to love. Of course, Spokane is close to endless outdoor recreation opportunities in the mountains, on lakes and in rivers. And with Coeur d’Alene, ID not far away, Spokane offers close access to all that northern Idaho has to offer.

Moving to Boise from California what to know

Boise, Idaho

Speaking of Idaho, not only does Boise have more days of Sunshine than either of the two cities listed above, but it also offers a slightly slower pace of life, which the outdoor lover may appreciate. For those who love trails for hiking and mountain biking, the 190-mile Ride to Rivers system is a huge draw. Skiing options are nearby, as are parks and bodies of water for numerous other active adventures. Boise is one of the fastest growing areas in the Northwest, and for good reason.

New Homes in Sisters Oregon

Sisters, Oregon

Similar to Bend, Sisters is nestled in the heart of the Cascades but it has a unique, western feel. If you love the outdoors, but don’t love crowds, Sisters is the place for you. You’ll love Historic Western Town, the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show, the Sisters Folk Festival and the Sisters Rodeo. The city offers excellent dining and entertainment options as well, and offers quick access to loads of outdoor recreation opportunities such as hiking, rafting, fly-fishing and camping.

What’s to Love About Bend?

The question shouldn’t be, “What’s to love about Bend?” but rather, “What’s not to love about Bend?” With over 300 days of sunshine every year, Bend’s weather alone makes it worth considering. But it’s not just the weather in Bend that you’ll fall in love with. Indeed, Money by TIME Magazine recently ranked Bend as one of the top 50 places in the country to live, citing the following reasons for its choice:

Bend is a Mecca for Outdoor Enthusiasts

  • Mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. For those who love the outdoors, there’s no place like Bend. Settled along the edge of the Cascade Range, those who love to spend time in nature will find activities like mountain biking, rafting, climbing, skiing, fishing, camping, and more not only accessible, but common.
    Short Commute Times in Bend
  • Short commute times. Would you love to live in an area where your commute to work is short? In Bend, the average commute time is just 15 minutes, and a strong percentage of commuters rely on bike or foot to get to and from their place of work and recreation.
    Relaxed Atmosphere in Bend
  • Relaxed, stress-free atmosphere. If you’re looking for a small town-feel and the relaxation and laid-back lifestyle that comes with it, Bend is for you. With a lot of breweries and beer festivals, a culture that puts emphasis on good food and music, and a city that is as dog-friendly as they come, Bend is the place to be if you want to reduce your levels of stress.
