rocks. It's awesome. I'm a climber and outdor nut and having so many options so close is really cool. Smith Rock and the Callahans, Three Sisters, and Mt. Hood. Rock on hard Eugene.
If you want to know what heaven looks like, just visit
, then you'll realise by yourself after seeing it. It is a great place to live peacefully, no crime and a safe place from natural disaster. Wonderful angels are living here, don't miss it.
I just returned from a road trip to
and I had a blast. The people are very cool. The environment is accessible and friendly. Found several spots to check out people from all backgrounds. My fav was a hole in wall spot called "Happy Times" - the hippie element is rich, the pool tables are free, and if you're out of town just strike up a conversation and you'll get free drinks and friendly chat. Also, a decent riverside bike path that goes for 20 or so miles.
Everyone should get a chance to visit
! I initially went to visit colleges in the area (Lewis and Clark was amazing, so was Reed), but the culture is really what captured me. Everyone in the area is so involved with the environment and nature, it's extremely refreshing. Don't be surprised to find that many people use bicycles or public transportation as their main way to get around -- that's just the kind of place it is!
I came here recently as one of the last hippies left in a right wing town in California, it was like I could breathe again! It is truly impressive!
rocks!!! Lots of towns and states could take lessons on how to preserve beauty from Eugene. I really hope it maintains its hippie status.
I moved to
from Kansas in '99. It was an eye-opening experience. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves the outdoors.
