Hayward Field

Reviewed By Philip G - Livingston, Texas

As a former long distance runner, I made sure to visit Hayward Field on our trip to Eugene. Although the locked gates kept us from entering the venue, we were able to get a good view of the track and stadium. On the outside, there were signs explaining the history of Hayward Field and honoring two legendary Oregon track coaches as well as Steve Prefontaine.

Tim and Tonya clearly care about their business and making sure their guests have a great experience. They kept our group's preferences in mind and were great hosts. Had a fun trip down the McKenzie. The water is incredibly beautiful, clear and clean. It isn't a wild ride but Tim did his best to give the teenagers a fabulous ride.

Pfeiffer Vineyards

Reviewed By Mike P

As you approach the entrance you are not sure what to expect. Lots a vineyards and a large metal/barn looking building. Certainly so much more. You can also see their beautiful home on the lower portion of the vineyards near the ponds.
The pavilion is great everyday of the year. Fireplace is always stoked on a cool day. Even during the week. Great staff that is very knowledgeable. Tasting room is very cozy with its own fireplace and sitting areas as well. Try their own cheese. Very comfortable and inviting for the first timer. The owners are almost always present. Don't know how they have so much energy. Great people.
Truly a top tier boutique winery. The water gardens are a great place to bring a lunch or snack and enjoy the wines.
They put on lots of events and they really are worth attending.
For us this is not a quick stop for a tasting, it's a great destination.
Explore the vineyards and the wines. The clinics are awesome.

Scenic Jet Boat Tours

Centrally located between the towns of Eugene, Springfield, Corvallis and Albany Oregon. Scenic tours of the Willamette and McKenzie rivers aboard a 22' River Jet Sled. Offering weekend trips year round and adding weekday evenings April-September. Experience views of the coast and cascade foothills, the south Willamette valley and all they have to offer. Be ready to see Oregon wildlife including deer, osprey, beaver, bald eagles, blue heron and so much more. Be entertained with valley history and even a wild story or two. A great trip for a couple or the whole family. Great Times and Cool Rides!

Reviewed By Sal1710 - Eugene

Although we are 5th generation Oregonians who love to camp, we were delighted to learn about this new business and immediately booked a 2+ hour evening ride this summer. It was wonderful and Captain Mike shared local history, sights and many interesting stories as well as pointing out Eagles, Osprey Nests and natural sights. Starting in Harrisburg outside Eugene, you can opt for either the South trip to Eugene where you will see the confluence of the Wilamette and McKenzier rivers (impossible to see by land) ,or the North trip to Corvallis, both are round trip excursions. (with a cookie stop along the way) We took our grown kids on this ride, and it will be something we will take all our " Oregon visitors" on in future summers.

Autzen Stadium

Reviewed By Al154 - Phoenix, Arizona

Was in Eugene for a meeting and went to Autzen for the game. It was built in 1967 but has all the modern items a stadium needs. There are big screens above both endzones so you can replays of the action if you miss it on the field. The Duck fans are LOUD and the students are big supporters of their team with the Duck mascot doing push ups for every point scored by the home team, which can be a lot. The uniforms are always colorful to say the least and the play on the field is fast with few breaks except for the TV timeouts. Before the kickoff there are lots of tailgate parties, most by local fans, but some are sponsored as well. Since the Ducks won it was a great way to spend a Saturday at the stadium.

Walnut Ridge Vineyard

Reviewed By Thomas L - Florence

I've just had the opportunity to visit once during a "Barrel Run" event of Prairie Mountain wineries, the group Walnut Ridge and a handful of other nice vineyards/wineries of this area form. The facilities are well cared for and Walnut Ridge has a beautiful and modern tasting room. Having met Jim and Wendy, I can say without reserve that these are pleasant, knowledgable people in love with their work and lifestyle. Their wine shows this, and I hope to visit again soon.

Benton-Lanes Oregon Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris wines are currently distributed in 49 states and several international markets.

Reviewed By Sleddoggie - Port Saint Lucie, Florida

This is one of the first wineries that got us hooked on Willamette Valley Pinot Noirs. The patio here has a nice view of the vineyards. They now have a wood fire pizza oven, which seems to be the new "thing" in the wineries. Ours was very good and only $10. We really enjoyed the 2014 First Class Pinot Noir while we were there. The staff was helpful and friendly. This winery is about 1 hour from Salem.

We've seen lots of events over the years at the Hult Center as well as other venues across the country/world.

The Hult Center has to be near the top of anyone's list.

So well designed, it has stood the test of time.

Hamilton would be so awesome here!

Broadley Vineyards

Reviewed By A R H - Charleston, South Carolina

Monroe is a bit off the Willamette Valley beaten path, but well worth a visit because of their wines. Broadley vineyards have been going since 1982 and Morgan Bradley is the family's 2nd generation wine maker. Monroe is in a micro-climate that is some what drier and warmer than normal for the WV (the banana belt) and that coupled with their wine making skills makes for a different Pinot Noir. We tasted 4 Pinots which were all excellent, with great acidity, and were richer than normal, with great balanced tannins. They had that old world structure that makes for a great long lived wine, and have understandably received a number of awards. It's always good when your tasting is run why the wine maker, and Morgan was a super host and gave us an excellent run down on their wines and the vineyard. Recommended.
