No matter the question, a hot soak is often the answer. Tired from skiing? Hit the hot tub. Just plain cold out? Same.
Hot tubs, both private and public, are popular here, and the soaking pool at McMenamins Old St. Francis School offers a place for tourists and locals alike to soak up some of the best of Bend.
This warmed saltwater pool is uniquely ethereal, with an open roof that allows starlight views on clear nights, and raindrops or even snow to fall inside if the weather's downcast.
If you go, take $5 and an ID.
