Summertime in the Eugene, Cascades & Coast region is a glorious time of year. From Oregon's sun-streaked beaches to the cool Cascades, nature invites you outside. The weather ranges from hot and balmy to comfortably cool. Daylight stretches out, starting early with rosy hues in the east and concluding with vibrant after dinner sunsets over the ocean.
