Eugene Real Estate
Home to about 150,000 residents, Eugene is celebrated for its natural beauty, outdoor adventures, alternative culture, and passion for sports, particularly track and field (Nike found its beginnings in Eugene!).
Eugene is often referred to as “TrackTown USA”, and has hosted a number of world class track and field events, including the U.S. Olympic Trials, and the upcoming 2021 Track and Field World Championships. The legend of track icon Steve Prefontaine continues to live on in Eugene, as he is memorialized locally through a popular jogging trail known as Pre’s Trail, The Prefontaine Classic track and field meet, and Pre’s Rock, where he was tragically killed in a car crash.
A number of colleges are located in Eugene, including The University of Oregon, Lane Community College, and Northwest Christian University. This plethora of higher education institutions no doubt played a role in the more than 400 tech companies that call the Eugene – Springfield area home or helped Eugene make Fast Company’s Top 10 List of Up-and-Coming Cities for Tech Jobs.
In 1970, the first Saturday Market in the U.S. was founded in Eugene, and continues to run in downtown Eugene’s Park Blocks from April through November with more than 200 local artisans selling their handcrafted wares, along with local produce, food booths, and music.
The performing arts, visual arts, and music scene is alive in Eugene, with numerous galleries and venues throughout the town. The Hult Center for the Performing Arts in the heart of downtown is home to seven resident companies, including the Eugene Ballet Company, Eugene Opera, and Eugene Symphony and also brings national musical and performing arts acts to town. The McDonald Theater and Cuthbert Amphitheater are also great venues for seeing your favorite artists perform.
The second largest airport in Oregon is located in Eugene. The Eugene Airport offers non-stop service to ten destinations (including Portland, Los Angeles, Denver, and Honolulu), along with connections to anywhere in the world through the six airlines operating out of it.
