Eugene, Oregon

Eugene, Oregon

There’s something about Eugene that makes it more than a little special. Walkable, bikeable, skateable. But also modern, totally connected, and vibrant. It’s kind of perfect—an extraordinary academic community surrounded by a quintessential college town. It’s alive with music, culture, food, art, and just the right amount of weird to keep things interesting.

Liquid Sunshine

Rain—it comes and goes as it pleases around here. We don't mind. To Ducks, rain isn't just rain. It's liquid sunshine. It keeps everything fresh, lush, and green.

Don't worry, we have other weather, too. We're outside year-round because of it (and sometimes in spite of it). Balmy summers with lots of sun, cool but not bitterly cold winters, and every once in a while, a nice dusting of snow.
