Eugene in the Top 17 Places to Visit

Published: January 11, 2017

 

Eugene, Ore. - It's likely everyone is familiar with Expedia for booking hotels, buying airline tickets or renting a car, but they also provide rich reviews of places to go and things to see through their "viewfinder travel blog."  And that's where Eugene has made an appearance in the "17 places you must visit in 2017!"  Along with cities like Charlottesville, Virginia, Newport, Rhode Island, San Antonio, Texas and thirteen other cities from across the nation, Eugene is among the places that, "include artsy spots, history meccas, and nature oases that will make 2017 your best year yet." 

Blog author Chole Mulliner selected Eugene as her only Oregon city to visit and provides this overview:

The appeal: Tucked in the Willamette Valley, Eugene has that hippy, outdoorsy vibe, but it’s got a city scene, too, with breweries to boot. 
Stay: In one of the 14 dazzling rooms at Excelsior Bed and Breakfast Inn. The inn serves fresh produce straight from their very own farm. 
Do: Behold Skinner Butte Park. Located along Willamette River, it’s one of the city’s oldest parks. Afterwards, marvel at the winged ones at Cascades Raptor Center.
Play: The McKenzie River National Recreation Trail, where you can explore an old lava flow and romp around under the conifer trees. 
Eat: Some steak and ale stew and a local brew at North Bank Pub. Grab a seat by the window and watch the boats float down the river.

As locals, are able to enjoy all the Eugene, Cascades & Coast region has to offer and Travel Lane County's 600+ members are ready to give you an experience to blog about in 2017! The best way to plan your next adventure is to visit the Eugene, Cascades & Coast Adventure Center off Gateway Street.

The Adventure Center is also a place to buy needed permits and pick up maps. And they happen to a TicketsWest sales outlet as well!
