Plan Your Next Vacation

Published: February 26, 2021


We all need a few days off and a break from the daily grind — and even more so this year. So plan a refreshing vacation with a change of scenery, even if it isn't that far from home! Visiting your own hometown can be a lot of fun and give you a deeper appreciation for this amazing place where you live. Enjoy time with your family where all you have to worry about is deciding what kind of scone to pair with your coffee. Or getaway a little farther and discover a new, beautiful place to be.

Plan your vacation by choosing your favorite ways to enjoy your time away: at the hotel pool or dining outdoors. With hotels practicing safety and sanitation protocols, you can relax knowing that local businesses are putting the health and safety of their customers and staff as a top priority.

Urban getaway

All of the amenities of a big city without the crowds. Staying in the heart of Eugene and Springfield has never been easier. Enjoy plenty of elbow room as you stroll downtown, checking out the local street art and many murals. Restaurants have perfected the take-out experience so you can pick up your meals to go and head to the park for a picnic or return to the privacy of your hotel room. Some restaurants have even set up comfortable outdoor spaces for eating, so you can sit down and enjoy service.

From Springfield's Main Street boutiques to Eugene's Saturday Market, there are plenty of shopping options. Rent a PeaceHealth bicycle or bring your own bike and cycle the river paths at Skinner Butte Park or Dorris Ranch.
