It’s easy to see why Eugene is lovingly called the Emerald City. Nestled at the southern end of the Willamette Valley, this city of more than 160,000 residents shines with its lively arts scene and stunning greenery. Aside from an abundance of museums and cultural events, the city is also known for being a center for outdoor recreation. As a bustling college town, Eugene is home to the University of Oregon along with many other institutions of higher learning. It is also where Nike had its humble beginnings before becoming a household name in sporting apparel.

With “Track Town USA” as one of its monikers, Eugene held its place as the track and field capital of the world for nearly 40 years. In 2021, the city will be hosting the 18th Track and Field World Championships. Whether you’re visiting Eugene as a sports fan, art enthusiast or a simple sanctuary-seeker, there are a lot of places to stay in that truly evoke the city’s vibrant spirit.
