Eugene, Oregon is at the south end of the Willamette Valley where two large rivers and many smaller ones meet. It is also a place of converging ideas. Eugene is full of artists, academics, innovators and visionaries. Alongside today's developing technology and evolving ideas is the history of the Indigenous Peoples who were here first and are here today. This destination continuously strives for increased accessibility and improved sustainability. 

The Eugene community is passionate in many pursuits. Eugene is dubbed "TrackTown USA" by elite athletes around the world, the "Silicon Shire" by leaders in the tech industry, "A Great City for the Arts & Outdoors" by its local residents, "Home of the Ducks" by collegiate sports fans and "Emerald City" by those whom love its many green spaces and lush fern and evergreen forests.  

Eugene is a renaissance city and the people here have dedication and grit. Visit Eugene and experience the energy of a city alive!
