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.
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.
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!
I'm 16, and I've lived in
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.
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!
rocks. It's awesome. I'm a climber and outdor nut and having so many options so close is really cool. Smith Rock and the Callahans, Three Sisters, and Mt. Hood. Rock on hard Eugene.
