... it isn't a big tourist destination really, but there may be no better example of the ideal small American city. It's a young town and the locals are some of the most genuinely friendly people you'll find anywhere. It has a lively downtown and nightlife. And it's surrounded on all sides by great outdoor hiking areas, including the spectacular Columbia River Gorge. Mt. St. Helens is a short drive away, and if you're into skiing, check out nearby Mt. Hood. It's the only mountain in North America with year-round snow skiing.
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…

is not a big tourist city, but that is because people don't know what a gem it is. Come for a weekend. If you have a car you can drive to Mt. Hood and Multnomah falls, or if not just enjoy downtown. Be sure to visit Powell's, the biggest bookstore in the world, encompassing an entire city block.
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.
, 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.
You can't find a bad bottle of Pinot Noir in this little town called
. I will return!
