You can't find a bad bottle of Pinot Noir in this little town called Eugene. I will return!
I'm 16, and I've lived in Eugene 15 years. Not that hippie-ish... but generally liberal. But it's pretty diverse. I've nevergone to the Eugene Celebration, but I hear it's pretty cool.
I've lived in Eugene for 7 years. It's a fun city, big enough to have lots to do. If you visit, check out the Weekly (www.eugeneweekly.com) to get info on what's happening, because there are lots of clubs and shows all the time. Two of my favorites are Cafe Paradiso and Cozmic Pizza. Both have live music, open mic nights, etc. I am in a group that puts on a belly dance show the third Friday of each month (www.medge.org) at Cozmic Pizza. Also, while you're here you MUST be sure to get to Sweet Life Bakery and/or Metropole at the 5th Street, and from April to November be sure to check out the Saturday Market, outdoors on the Park blocks downtown. Tons of food, entertainment, stuff to buy, and tie-dye underwear.
Eugene is a quaint, little, laid back university town, where you find neighborhoods of cute, pretty, rose adorned, cottage bungalow homes, many parks and surrounding mountain views from any point in the city. Eugene is quite liberal and does have a hippy element to it. Yet, there, you can also find trendy cafes and areas too. Eugene is great for nature and outdoor sports enthusiasts with its Pacific Northwest terrain and closeby Florence Beach, which is an hour away. There, you find Oregon Dunes National Park, where you see cliffs made of sand - quite an impressive sight. (By the way, Oregon's beaches are all public and appreciated for their unspoiled beauty.) And Eugene has often been voted as one of the best towns for bicyclists because it has great bike paths in most, if not all of its parks and throughout the city, making it super biker friendly. And finally, Eugene has a nice mild climate even in winter, although it has a long rainy season...But summers in Eugene are…
Portland is a liberal, hippie town that doesn't deserve to have consumers' hard-earned cash. Everywhere I went people were rude and stuck up. It is beautiful but the people make it not worth going back. It's not a recommended stay unless you go out of the city, maybe then you will have a better time than I did!
I've lived in Eugene all my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. If I started out living somewhere else, then I would probably end up living here later on in my life. My favorite things to do here are going to the Saturday Market, going to the poetry slams at Morning Glory every last thursday of the month, the county fair (which is sadly only once a year), going to shows and walking downtown and through the parks at night.
