Why Eugene?

It’s a city big enough to boast excellent restaurants, arts, and events, but small enough to still feel like a community. It’s also easy to get out of town, making it an ideal place for lovers of outdoor activities, with world-class opportunities for fishing, rafting, bicycling, hiking, and camping. The city is just an hour to the Cascades Mountains or to the Oregon Coast, but you don’t have to leave Eugene to find nature. The Willamette River runs through the middle of the city and there are parks and trails throughout Eugene. Home to the University of Oregon, Eugene is proud to have hosted the 2021 Olympic Track and Field Trials and the 2022 Track and Field World Championships. Whatever you’re looking for, you can find it here!
