, for being a somnolent, provincial, and boring place! I managed to get a degree in philosophy at University of Oregon, even though I have struggled with academics all my life. I don't know what I would do without the mind-enhancing experience of U of O. If Eugene had been a lively, interesting place, I never would have graduated. Eugene is the perfect college town, because the climate is oppressive, and most of the people are oblivious.
may feel small, which is part of its charm, but it is not a "small American city". The metropolitan area population ranks 22nd in the USA at about 2.2 million people.
's a nice town. Yes, it reeks of patchouli and wool socks in Birkenstocks but, without that olifactory stimulii, it wouldn't BE Eugene. If you don't like hippies, you're in the wrong town.
First off, it ain't Corvallis. It is not about urban options either. Yew-jean is that sweet spot in between. It drives partiers batty 'cause there's nowhere to drink and the clubs are minimal save a few drinkeries.
's biggest strength is the outdoors. If you run or cycle this is a great place to be. Ridgeline trail goes up along spencers butte (a great day hike) and runs across Fox Hollow and over to Dillard. Great running but muddy. And of course all the famed bark chip running trails. Cycling galore. Too much to put here. But be prepared for the beggars that gets old.
It is not that freaking hippy-ish!!
is a great town. Go Ducks =)
is one of prettiest towns left in Oregon. Without the hippie atmosphere, Eugene would be just another city dependent on logging, it's the hippies that make Eugene different and love it or hate it, they bring in a portion of small buisnesses.
