Eugene is nestled at the southern end of Oregon’s Willamette Valley, near the confluence of the McKenzie and Willamette rivers. It is centrally located just one hour from the Oregon coast, about two hours from the Cascade mountain range to the east, and about two hours south of Portland. The city is renowned for its natural beauty, recreational opportunities (bicycling, running, rafting, kayaking), focus on the arts, and for being the home of the University of Oregon.
