I lived in Portland for two years and then came back to Texas. Wow -- what a mistake I made. Portland is absolutely beautiful and I'm going back. It's all about PDX!
I just returned from a road trip to Eugene 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.
Eugene is a great city, filled with personality. The hippy-ness gets to me a little sometimes, but other than that, I have a wonderful time in Eugene.
Everyone should get a chance to visit Portland! 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!
Eugene does have beautiful scenery and it definitely is easy living here, but let me tell you something: this town is sooo anti-business and anti-cange, not to mention very racist. People here do not know how to deal with people of different ethnicities. No matter how liberal people say they are here, it's all BS, there isnothing wrong with the hippies here but the aura of negativity in Eugene just sucks, and it will always be that way.
Yeah, the "what's yours is mine" hippies and beggers do get on your nerves. A great percentage of the community lives in a bubble, too -- unaware that there's another world out there. Longer duration here allows you to see it's rather provincial in Eugene. Many folks I ran into weren't as sophisticated or cultured as I would have preferred or expected, sad to say. Obvious amenities not always found anywhere else -- Eugene does have its accessible and lush nature, plus the great tracks for bicycling.
