Oregon Commentaires

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.
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…
It is not that freaking hippy-ish!! Eugene is a great town. Go Ducks =)
I spent an idyllic summer in Eugene, in 1998. I would have stayed if I had found work. What people are calling "hippyness" are values I cherish: respect for the Earth that supports us, and our fellow human beings. At the same time, Eugene has a strong rural conservative component, making for an interesting mix. You might see a guy in a pickup with a gun rack right next to the one in the bike lane, pulling his child in the Oregon-made Burley bike trailer. I'll see you there for the Eugene Celebration, September 18-20!
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!
You can't find a bad bottle of Pinot Noir in this little town called Eugene. I will return!
