Stroll Through Hendricks Park
Since there is so much of an emphasis on the natural surroundings in Eugene, it is only fitting that you can take a stroll through Hendricks Park. This is the oldest city park with 78 acres of space for you to enjoy. People come to the park so that they can jog, hike the trails through the forest, go bird watching, and enjoy picnics. However, another aspect of the park is the famous rhododendron garden which brings in plant-lovers from all over the area. It’s a fun way to enjoy the natural surroundings of the city without going into the middle of nowhere.
Ta Ra Rin Thai Cuisine
Asian food and culture has a large impact on the west coast of the United States, and Eugene is no exception. Aside from the great cultural integration that has occurred, amazing food has made its way to the city. Ta Ra Rin Thai Cuisine represents amazing Thai food but also the best restaurant experience that Eugene has to offer. The ambiance of the restaurant is very calm and quiet, and the design features a lot of wood which plays off the naturalist feel of Eugene as a whole.
The food is exceptional, serving everything from noodles and curries to the specialty Tom Yung Kung Yai. The restaurant offers vegetarian dishes and always goes the extra mile for their customers.
Have Some Drinks At The Bier Stein
If you’re looking for something different than your usual dark and dim bar scene, this is it. The entire building is well-lit with a full bar and even some billiards tables. The biggest selling point is definitely the beer selection, which has everything from local brews to fancy imports. Aside from having a lot of beer on tap and a fun atmosphere that includes live events, you can also buy bottles right from their wall of refrigerators.
Their staff works hard to keep you happy and informed as they constantly update their online site to include what’s on tap. All in all, The Bier Stein is something truly special in Eugene.
Eugene is not as popular as Portland, but its name is getting out there a little more thanks to legalization. The marijuana dispensaries in the city are not only numerous, but they are really unique in a lot of ways. Aside from the great cannabis, though, you can count on the city to be a haven for nature lovers. Combined with amazing cultures, food, and drinks, you can have a lot of fun in Eugene.
