For a real 'Eugene experience,' check out these neighborhoods:
- Downtown Eugene: Shoppers can find just about anything in downtown Eugene, from clothing and footwear to furniture and gifts. Grab a bite at one of the area's coffeehouses, brewpubs, burger joints or fine dining establishments.
- The Market District: This busy neighborhood is a hub for shopping, dining and beer tasting. For an afternoon walk or bike ride, head to beautiful Skinner Butte Park along the river.
- Whiteaker: Home to many artists, writers, and musicians, the Whiteaker neighborhood (aka "The Whit") offers a hip, bohemian vibe. Take a stroll through the colorful Owen Rose Garden or sit down to dinner at some of the city's best restaurants, which serve up soul food, vegan pizza, international cuisine and more.
