Calling Eugene Home
Eugene is located at the southern end of the agriculturally rich Willamette Valley. From here, it is a short jaunt east to the Cascade Mountains, west to the stunning Pacific Ocean coastline, or north to Portland. We're a small city with unlimited things to do: Downtown Eugene is revitalizing; the Oregon Bach Festival and Eugene Symphony call the Hult Center for the Performing Arts home; you can float the Willamette River and hook a salmon after work in the shadow of downtown; a booming food and beverage economy, including topnotch local craft breweries and wineries in the surrounding countryside, is the foundation of a local restaurant scene; the University of Oregon brings arts, culture, and educational opportunities, as well as championship athletics (Go Ducks!); a nationally-recognized transit system helps you move around the city; and our Gold rating as a Walk- and Bicycle-Friendly Community ensures that safe travel options abound! Known as Track Town USA, the community annually plays host to numerous track and field events at historic Hayward Field, including the IAAF World Championships in 2022! The impact of track and field can be seen beyond the track, with abundant trails coursing through the south hills, along the Willamette River, and through hundreds of acres of city parks. To learn more about Eugene, visit Eugene Cascades and Coast.
