Eugene Weekly : Winter Getaways : 10.27.11

Winter  Getaways

Just because there’s a recession doesn’t mean we don’t need a break. If the Halloween spending forecast is any indication — the National Retail Federation has predicted people will spend 10 percent more this year on spooky fun than they did last year — then Eugeneans and fellow 99 percenters across the country are looking for a good time for not much money this cold season.

Whether by choice or by accident, if you live in Eugene then you live where it rains. But you also live in a spot conveniently located between the coast and mountains. And if snow and waves aren’t your thing, no worries; Eugene has an airport, train station and bus station. If you’re not in the mood for a trendy staycation then head out of town this winter and get away.  — Camilla Mortensen
