Eugene truly is a unique college town nestled in Oregon's Willamette Valley. Loyal Duck fans, tie-dye t-shirts and lush natural beauty — what's not to love about Eugene? Depending on which direction you drive, white sand coastal beaches or white powder snow at ski resorts are less than an hour from Eugene. Known for its laidback atmosphere, jeans are acceptable attire at even the swankiest restaurants downtown. Put on your hiking shoes, dust off your bike helmet, and explore and play in Eugene!
