On the edge of Eugene is a wonderful place to get back to nature and explore our regions original topography, a vast oak savanna. From short trails along the river to a rewarding, breath-taking (literally) climb up to the mountaintop, or an afternoon at one of the arboretum's community events, this place is magical and not to be missed. http://www.mountpisgaharboretum.com/
Eugene's Saturday Market is one of the longest running outdoor markets in the country. You'll find everything from elegant handcrafted jewelry to the expected tie-dye, from luscious cheesecake to spicy Pad Thai, from tarot card readers to hand carved wooden trucks...browsing and communing with neighbors and friends is the best part of the day!
