Eugene: Casual Town With Intellectual Charm

Eugene is a town full of casual comfort and beautiful scenery. Casual doesn't mean there are not plenty of intellectual pursuits here: The University of Oregon Museum of Art houses one of the finest collections of Asian art anywhere. History buffs will enjoy a visit to the University's Museum of History, if only to see the 9,000 year old shoes featured there. King Estate is a winery that offers tasting tours to individuals and groups. This is a great chance to learn about area wines."
