Welcome to Eugene
Eugene offers a great art scene, exceptionally fine restaurants, boisterous festivals, miles of riverside paths and several lovely parks. Its location at the confluence of the Willamette and McKenzie Rivers, just west of the Cascades, means there's plenty of outdoor recreation on offer – especially around the McKenzie River region, the Three Sisters Wilderness and Willamette Pass.
The Oregon coast, just 60 miles west, is easily accessible via pretty Hwy 126. And Eugene's at the southern end of the Willamette Valley, which boasts several world-class wineries.
