Danebo/Royal/Bethel/Fairview etc. should be avoided. That area is pretty poor and white-trashey. Personally, I think it's as bad as most of Springfield. Willamette High is mostly full of underachieving wangsters.

Also, do your kids a favor and DON'T send them to Sheldon for high school. I went there, and it's absolutely horrible. It's pretty much just a bunch of crappy, stupid, self-entitled rich kids whose parents buy them brand new $30K SUVs when they turn 16. The area itself is fine, but IMO the schools are baaaaad.

Santa Clara "technically" isn't part of Eugene. It's lower middle class, but it's not so trashy like most of Springfield and Bethel/Danebo.

Not sure what "crossover" means, but if you want something along the same budget as Bethel/Danebo, but far better I would look at South Eugene.

Most people hear 'South Eugene' and think 'expensive', but there are many cheap houses there, the neighborhood is safer, the scenery is better, you are closer to town, and get the best public schools. Look at houses in the flatter areas around Amazon and Hilyard streets.

Is that like the Friendly area?

We were at Off the Waffle the other day (talk about yum...), which is right across from Tsunami Books, and we were really liking the feeling in that neighborhood. You have just about everything you need as far as food & misc. shopping you might need to do (LOVE Down to Earth). It's got a good vibe to it, and it's flat so it's walking and biking friendly!

Yeah that area, and the area further south along E and W Amazon. all a very nice area and lots of cheaper houses although i don't know if many of them are available to buy or rent.

IMO, more stuff to do around amazon/hilyard area -- and within walking distance. Friendly area is nice though.
