Eugene, Oregon: “Track Town, USA” and home of Iconic Oregon Ducks Football Team
Nestled in the south of the Willamette Valley, lies beautiful and scenic Eugene, Oregon with a population of more than 156,000 and neighbor to Springfield, Goshen, Coburg and Alvadore. Eugene is known for its celebration of art, diversity and the outdoors. When I think of Eugene, Oregon, I always think of Steve Prefontaine, the famous American distance runner from University of Oregon (U of O). Now a special track meet called the “Prefontaine Classic” is held in his honor.
Any time throughout the year is a great time to explore the nature and stunning parks such as Spencer Butte Park or Hendricks Park. This Emerald City is a prime place to spend time rafting, hiking, and kayaking. Eugene’s Hult Center for the Performing Arts hosts the Eugene Symphony, Opera, and Ballet. If you’re in town between April and November, make sure to stop by the Eugene Saturday Market.
Eugene, Oregon Universities and Education
Eugene is home of the University of Oregon (U of O), Northwest Christian University, Pacific University, and Lane Community College. Most popularly known for the Oregon Ducks, the University of Oregon is one the top and largest employers in Eugene, accompanied by PeaceHealth Medical Group, Eugene School District, State of Oregon, Lane County, U.S. Government, Springfield School District, City of Eugene, Lane Community College and Walmart. Eugene’s chief industries are wood products manufacturing and recreational vehicle manufacturing.
Eugene, Oregon Hospitality and Hotels
Although Eugene, OR is known for being a college town, it contains stellar conference centers and venues that companies and groups frequent such as Hilton Eugene and Conference Center, Center for Learning at Lane Community College, and University of Oregon (U of O) Conference Center.
If you’re in town for recreation or a conference, Eugene provides accommodation and comfort no matter your budget. Inn at the 5th, Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites Eugene, Residence Inn Eugene Springfield, The Valley River Inn and Hilton Eugene are some great options to choose from next time you’re in town.
Eugene, Oregon is a progressive city that is filled with great thinkers, enthusiastic people and I’m looking forward to the next time I get to stop in. And don’t forget, go Ducks!
