The downtown scene in Eugene is diverse and creative. The social culture, culinary choices, visual arts and performing arts combine to excite the senses.
Sustainable living has also been an established value long before the mainstream surge – many food purveyors source ingredients from local farms and interior design is often inspired by the use of reclaimed items. An accessible network of pedestrian connections and bike lanes connect the University of Oregon, south Eugene and the Whiteaker District to downtown with just minutes of travel time.
A state-of-the-art public library, a downtown community college campus and a nationally recognized public transportation system are landmarks that represent the commitment to community, education and environmental responsibility.
