I've been in
since 1994. And, yes, we have hippies, snobs, cliques, crazies, and the pseudo-rich, but it's like Jerry Garcia and John Waters had a love child and named it Eugene. The scenery is magnificent and there are a million amazing hiking trails and swimming spots. Yes, everything closes up early. Yes, you will be panhandled. And, yes, there are some really stinky people here. But it's the same wherever you go. I''m always happy to travel the world and see new things, but I'm always happy to come home to Eugene.
How could anyone not like
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.
It is not that freaking hippy-ish!!
is a great town. Go Ducks =)
I lived in
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!
Everyone should get a chance to visit
! 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!
