About Eugene
Eugene, Oregon, is a classic college town, with a metropolitan-area population of more than 200,000. You’ll find that Eugene is small enough to bike across, but large enough to offer galleries, music venues, and great restaurants to discover. Outdoor recreation is key to the Eugene lifestyle, with rivers to run, mountains to snowboard, rocks to climb, trails to hike, and an ocean to surf, all within easy reach. Eugene is located in the center of western Oregon, about 100 miles south of Portland and halfway between the Pacific Ocean and the Cascade Mountains in the lush Willamette Valley.
