Hints of the Old West mingle with world-class spas, restaurants, boutiques, and galleries in the Cascade Mountain Range community of Sisters, Oregon. Visitors come from all over the world to stay in Sisters vacation rentals for the opportunity to experience outdoor recreation such as hiking, biking, fishing, and boating in a pristine natural environment. Summer days are balmy and rarely too warm, and seasonal snowfall attracts winter sports enthusiasts from all across the globe.
Downtown Sisters is characterized by small mom-and-pop shops of almost every variety. You'll find fly fishing retailers next door to a yarn shop that specializes in alpaca wool, for instance. You won't see restaurants in Sisters, but you'll find everything from good, old-school diners that have been owned and operated by the same family for years to upscale fine dining complete with menu items and wine lists that you'd expect to see in big city establishments rather than at a place in a small mountain town. Because Sisters attracts artists as well as talented crafters, you'll find no shortage of paintings, pottery, fabric art, and other quality items to take home as a reminder of your stay in the area.
Anytime is a good time to visit Sisters, but if special occasions appeal to you, The Sisters Rodeo is a well-loved, long running community tradition that happens every June. Other annual events include The Freedom Festival at the end of June that celebrates patriotism, the Glory Daze Car Show in July, and the renowned Sisters Folk Festival in September. One of the most notable events, however, is the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show which takes place on the first Saturday of July. It's the largest quilt show on Earth, and the entire town is wrapped in quilts to create a stunning spectacle not seen anywhere else.
