There is only one Blockbuster still surviving in the entire United States. Here's what it's like to visit.

  • Blockbuster is almost down to a single location in the entire United States: a shop in Bend, Oregon.

  • On Thursday, Blockbuster announced that the final two locations in Alaska would close next week.

  • The Bend, Oregon location is both beloved by locals and a hot spot for nostalgic tourists eager to see the last Blockbuster in America.

Blockbuster's last stand in the United States is in Bend, Oregon.

On Thursday, Blockbuster Alaska announced that the last two stores in the state would be closing up shop next week. That will leave just one remaining Blockbuster location in the entire United States.

The holdout is in Bend, a city in central Oregon with an estimated population just shy of 100,000. As the final Blockbuster locations across the US have finally closed up shop — with two other Blockbusters in Oregon closing in recent months — travelers have begun making their way to Bend in a nostalgic pilgrimage to the video rental chain.

For Blockbuster lovers desperately missing the store and for video-rental virgins raised on Netflix, here's what it's like to visit the last remaining Blockbuster in the US:
