Living in Eugene

Eugene, in Oregon, is sometimes referred to as 'the Emerald Valley', because of its incredible scenery with rolling hills, beautiful trees and mountains which can be seen in the distance. If you're thinking of living in Eugene, or you've already moved and you want to find a good way of getting a feel for the city, you can attend the annual Oregon Bach festival. Showcasing the amazing work of Johann Sebastian Bach, the festival takes place across various venues in Eugene and is a good way to learn about some of the cultural venues the city has to offer. If you are interested in modern and classic art, you can join in with the "first or last Friday Artwalk" - walk through the city and visit many of the art galleries that make Eugene proud to call itself a place to live and work that's rich in culture. If you want more information on living in Eugene, or the US in general, you can join InterNations and with a visit to our forums and discussion groups get some advice about living abroad from an expatriate community whose members can offer firsthand experience in this regard.
