As soon as we arrived in Eugene, I felt at home. And that’s not something that happens very often. Eugene just has a sense of calm and welcome about it, drawing me in right away.
For the uninitiated, Eugene is a small city in Oregon, about an hour and a half drive from Portland. It’s a University town, but in the colder months is very quiet. The locals are super friendly, and it’s pretty easy to find your way around.
We only spent a weekend in Eugene, but I would love to go back and explore some more.
