Eugene - Springfield & Willamette Valley

Cradled between the Coast and the Cascades, discover a utopia of rolling grasslands, forests and rivers. Since pioneers first rolled their wagons into Oregon's Willamette Valley, this fertile landscape has supported agriculture and inspired dreamers.  
Today the Willamette Valley produces wine that rivals France; hazelnuts that dominate the domestic market; and is proliferate in small family farms raising everything from organic vegetables to Alpacas.

Eugene - Springfield is the largest metropolitan base in the south Willamette Valley, easily accessible by Interstate 5 and served by the state's second largest airport. The cities are enriched by several colleges, a robust arts and cultural scene, a thriving sports heritage, and of course, the area's pristine natural beauty.
