Sisters, home of the quaint western feel of Central Oregon. With the city growing to include more and more services and attractions like a movie house, brewery, art galleries and businesses to compliment Sisters Rodeo is a PRCA event during June, the quilt show on the second weekend of July, the Sisters Glory Daze Car Show is held in mid July and the Sisters Folk Festival is the first weekend of September.
Hiking, biking and horse riding trails go from the city limits into the Three Sisters Wilderness. Sisters Trail Alliance builds and maintains hiking, biking and equestrian trails near the city.
The Sisters area is also home to several mountain biking trails, including the Peterson Ridge Trail and Suttle Lake trails.
The Santiam Highway (U.S. Route 20) and the McKenzie Highway (Oregon Rt 126) merge briefly to form Cascade Avenue, the main thoroughfare through downtown Sisters. On Cascade Avenue, there is a lot of pedestrian traffic and many specialty stores and galleries. East of Sisters the two highways split, with 126 heading to Redmond and 20 going to Bend. West of Sisters, the road splits once more, with the McKenzie Highway becoming Oregon Route 242 and running west over the McKenzie Pass (a summertime-only scenic route over the Cascades.) The Santiam Highway proceeds over the Santiam Pass towards the valley.
