Oregon Comentários

Portland may feel small, which is part of its charm, but it is not a "small American city". The metropolitan area population ranks 22nd in the USA at about 2.2 million people.
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.
First off, it ain't Corvallis. It is not about urban options either. Yew-jean is that sweet spot in between. It drives partiers batty 'cause there's nowhere to drink and the clubs are minimal save a few drinkeries. Eugene's biggest strength is the outdoors. If you run or cycle this is a great place to be. Ridgeline trail goes up along spencers butte (a great day hike) and runs across Fox Hollow and over to Dillard. Great running but muddy. And of course all the famed bark chip running trails. Cycling galore. Too much to put here. But be prepared for the beggars that gets old.
You can't find a bad bottle of Pinot Noir in this little town called Eugene. I will return!
I love the bus system. For $2.50 you can get a day pass and go far. They also have a free bus between Eugene and Springfield (the EmX ).
I just returned from a road trip to Eugene and I had a blast. The people are very cool. The environment is accessible and friendly. Found several spots to check out people from all backgrounds. My fav was a hole in wall spot called "Happy Times" - the hippie element is rich, the pool tables are free, and if you're out of town just strike up a conversation and you'll get free drinks and friendly chat. Also, a decent riverside bike path that goes for 20 or so miles.
