Like most of the Pacific Northwest, Eugene weather feels like a hazy dream.

However, you can expect snow in the winter for skiing and hot days in the summer that are perfect for watersports. Eugene shares the “The Emerald City” nickname with its neighboring town Seattle because of its warm, wet weather and lush surroundings. As you’ll soon learn in your Eugene vacation rentals, the mist is part of the atmosphere.
