Awww. This IS such a great city. I went to Univ. of Oregon so I am particularly fond of it. Several friends moved back to Eugene to raise families. It's safe, has good food, some cultural stuff, an hour to the beach and good for outdoor activities. It's a very livable, hip, cool, city. Good schools, sort of small but not too small, has a good hospital (Sacred Heart) and spas and all the stuff you need. Shopping is the only thing that I'll say is a little dim. But most people drive to Portland for that. Lots of walking and an overall peaceful vibe...
