Oregon Commentaires

I moved to Eugene from Kansas in '99. It was an eye-opening experience. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves the outdoors.
Yes, Eugene is DEFINITELY hippy-ish. I've lived here for about 18 years now. Also lots of extremist environmentalists (AKA tree-huggers) and beggars. Expect to be approached several times by panhandlers while anywhere near downtown. Eugene is nice and there's lots of various outdoor activities nearby as well as several small theater venues and the Hult Center for large-scale musical and theater performances.
If you are planning on moving to Eugene as a musician or are planning to move your band here do yourself a big favor and bypass Eugene. You will get nowhere as everyone here plays for free. That is if you can even get anyone to let you play. Bypass Eugene and you will never regret it.
Portland is a liberal, hippie town that doesn't deserve to have consumers' hard-earned cash. Everywhere I went people were rude and stuck up. It is beautiful but the people make it not worth going back. It's not a recommended stay unless you go out of the city, maybe then you will have a better time than I did!
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!
I've lived in Eugene for 7 years. It's a fun city, big enough to have lots to do. If you visit, check out the Weekly (www.eugeneweekly.com) to get info on what's happening, because there are lots of clubs and shows all the time. Two of my favorites are Cafe Paradiso and Cozmic Pizza. Both have live music, open mic nights, etc. I am in a group that puts on a belly dance show the third Friday of each month (www.medge.org) at Cozmic Pizza. Also, while you're here you MUST be sure to get to Sweet Life Bakery and/or Metropole at the 5th Street, and from April to November be sure to check out the Saturday Market, outdoors on the Park blocks downtown. Tons of food, entertainment, stuff to buy, and tie-dye underwear.
