This is what drew me to Oregon to begin with namely Portland. It has a feel like no other. Maybe like Alaska, just something different where the water was nice, people were, overall quality of life better. In order of Oregon cities I would consider Portland 1st, Bend 2nd, Eugene 3rd from how it looks.

I also am in FL currently, but looking to one day move to Oregon unless by chance my needs are heavily met in Tampa and I force myself to stay in FL, but as far as I am concerned, I am heading there once I save up enough since the issues go deeper than social connections as well.. climate and stability. People may move to Oregon from other places frequently, but its a more stable population and many try to stay forever unlike FL and that was something that drew me too vs the FL transient nature.

Greetings, I, my children and friends are Puerto Rican and moved to Eugene, Oregon shortly. We have never visited the city, but we love what we have seen. I'm so glad I found this forum that allows me to find a virtual community and learn more about events.

See you soon!

Just an FYI, I've lived in Oregon my entire life and I'm now in Nebraska.

I've lived in Eugene and I was unimpressed. The Native Americans of old labled it Death Valley. If you suffer from allergies, than this place is not for you. A lot of meth heads and grand larceny so be careful. I lived a few blocks away from Gilham elementary and my house was in the upper class of town but the crime rate is high. Meth addicts will take anything to barter for their next high. If you insist on moving there, get an alarm and camera system. It won't hurt to own a gun either.

Crime rates are obviously VERY relative. To me, Eugene is EXTREMELY safe. To you, not so much.

meh...

Umm, OK. I can't believe you would write this about Eugene. In just two years I got to know Eugene and Oregon. I was impressed. Eugene has its problems, but so does any city. My parents were in the military in Nebraska. I've driven across the state and discovered the really amazing man-made Lake McConaughy. Nebraska is pretty much flat as a pancake. I know that Oregon is not for everyone, but your description of crime is just off the mark. It's hard to take you seriously unless you want to share some specific stories and not just generalities about how dangerous it is.

And no, you do not need a gun in Eugene.
