All of these things are what I'm looking for! Thanks for this thread, it's helped me to realize that Eugene is much more than what it appears to be. At first glance it looks promising, but to read about it here, it seems perfect!

If it weren't for the grass pollen (it's not a fun place for those with bad allergies) and the big ego some people try to give Eugene by the fancy new developments and pretentious remodels and spending gobs of money on renaming streets with perfectly good names after wealthy do-gooders (when that money could be used in a lot of other more beneficial ways, and there were new developments going on which could have been named in honor of the rich dude...)... I think it would be pretty close to being an almost perfect place.

Cafe Yumm! (Yumm sauce is crack sauce)
Saturday Market.
So many great Thai restaurants.
U of O...although the Cult of Duck is a little out of control.
Summers in Eugene are absolutely gorgeous.
Oregon Country Fair! (about ten miles outside of Eugene)
It takes you like ten minutes to get anywhere in town. Sooo convenient.
Like someone said, good mix of chains and mom and pop places.
Mostly very chill people, not judgmental or snotty.
Ganja.
Lone Pine Farms at Halloween time! Haunted corn maze and pumpkins!
The rain keeps everything lush and green.
Bier Stein's beer-cheese soup, oh my godddd yum.
Nothing is too overwhelming or too small here...it's not a big city but it's not a small town either. It's the perfect in-between town.

I'm kicking myself for moving away and plan on returning very soon. I miss it too much, and took a lot for granted. Eugene rocks.

After nearly five months in Eugene, I can say I totally love being able to hit a hiking trail about a hundred feet from my front door and find some dense overgrown ferny lushness in which to lose myself for a bit. I also like the rain. Although it makes hiking muddy, it keeps the air clear of small particulates, and hey - stuff grows.

Have you seen the MADD memorial garden in Eugene? My husband and I stumbled upon it the other day while out walking near the Ruth Bascom bike path. It's a vivid reminder of how dangerous drinking can be, and why it's so important to be responsible when you choose to drink. MADD Memorial Garden

Stumbling upon thinks that inspire creativity or more thought into subjects is one thing I love about Eugene. There's so much here, especially for a town this size. Sometimes I feel like there's hidden treasure everywhere.

Thanks, and have fun!

Who told you that? It should be a forum for truth, not sugar coating. Many towns and locations or communities have good and bad. Eugene has its share of both.

Eugene has changed since this thread was initiated. It's 2017 now & so many of the positives have gone away. COL is prohibitive for housing. So further out from downtown is the most affordable. On the upside, pot is legal now & currently the cost of acreage is favorable if you have $300k to put on the table. Cash deals abound for the fat wallet. Winter was different this year. Not positive. Kinda scary. Trees falling all over the place. But this Spring, Nature came back shining harder than ever. It's really beautiful this Spring, if you're into Nature like I am. The trees are recuperating. For myself, I won't retire here but I do enjoy the natives.
