Out and About in Sisters Oregon
Out and about in Sister’s Oregon by Rebecca Green
The overall Western theme of this quaint Central Oregon town makes for its own delight but the people are what make Sisters what it is - an amazing place to visit, to explore, to live. Filled with innovative, artistic, community spirited individuals this little town has a lot to offer. Looking for a local hang out, you’ll find great coffee and conversation at Sister’s Coffee, an extensive margarita menu at Los Agaves Mexican Grill or fine dining at Jen’s garden.
Out and about in Sisters this summer……
Sisters has it all. Golf, whitewater rafting, backpacking, camping, biking, hiking, horseback riding, climbing, and fishing you name it but the summer in Sisters brings a few unbeatable shows to town.
