Things to Do in Eugene

Eugene is a town of action! Run Pre's Trail, stroll through blooming rhododendrons in Hendricks Park, hike to the top of Spencer Butte or roll your wheels around town, along the riverbank path.

Treat yourself to shopping locally-owned stores, galleries and artisan markets. Take a scenic drive through wine country, where you'll visit area vineyards, talk to winemakers and sip some of the world's best Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris.

Immerse yourself in an authentic Northwest experience by enjoying a craft beer beside the river, then head into the vibrant city center for live music at a small bar or in an esteemed performing arts venue.
