At the foothills of the Cascade Range, North Bend, Washington, is a picturesque city with a distinctive blend of natural beauty and small-town charm. Surrounded by towering mountains and lush evergreen forests, North Bend is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and those seeking a close connection to nature. The city gained fame as the filming location for the iconic television series "Twin Peaks," adding a touch of mystery to its scenic allure.

Here are a few of my favorite spots:

  • Rattlesnake Lake Recreation Area is a must in the spring or summer. The views can’t be beat and if offers trails for families of all ages and abilities, along with several picnic, swimming and fishing areas.
  • Il Paesano Ristorante Italiano is a favorite restaurant in North Bend with long ties to the community and the owner, Gianfranco, has had his culinary roots planted since the mid-1980’s. I highly recommend their Penne al Forno, which is a baked Bolognese and is often their nightly special!
  • If you’re a Twin Peaks fan, then you’ll appreciate how much the original Double R Diner from the television show stays true to it’s famous history at Twede's Cafe, where you can still get a slice of their iconic Cherry Pie.
