The Original Pancake House

Breakfast Spots, Gastropubs

Before the upcoming trip, we decided to have a good breakfast. We stopped at The Original Pancake House. We were driving by and we saw this cute coffee shop building. My family likes sweet breakfasts. Pancakes and waffles with different jams and whipped cream. Beautiful! Very nourishing and delicious breakfast! We prepared everything very quickly too, so we didn't waste any time waiting.

Hendricks Park


We got to Eugene, and the first thing we did was take a walk in Hendricks Park. It's a very quiet and beautiful place to go for a walk. Very beautiful landscape, lots of colors, a riot of colors! I'd say it's a great place for a picnic. If you like to spend time actively, you can go jogging in the park or jump rope.

SweetWaters on the River

American Restaurants, Hotel Bars

We found this place by the reviews. We wanted to visit a restaurant with a beautiful view. This place met all our requirements. There are high chairs for kids, great views of the river, staff who work perfectly and madly delicious and fresh food.

Museum Of Natural And Cultural History

Art Galleries

It's a very interesting place. There is a wonderful collection of historical objects for viewing. Consciously for all, both adults and children. You can make a return to the past. There are also wonderful guides working there, who are very interesting to talk about each exhibit.

Fall Creek State Recreation Area

What a place! A real paradise for nature lovers! You can spend hours watching the serene water surface sitting on the shore, or vice versa, take an active walk and walk along the bubbling streams. There are also fantastic views of the nearby forests and mountains. By the way, as the guys we met told us, resting on the shore, if you go a little further east, you will find yourself in the reserve with even more exciting scenery.


French Restaurants, Gourmet Shops

It was a wonderful dinner. The restaurant has dishes for every taste, even for vegetarians. There are also high chairs for feeding the children if you need them. The price-performance ratio was excellent! Very high quality service, large wine list. Actually, a wide variety of alcohol. Of course, there was a minor drawback. Like the speed at which the food is served. But overall, it wasn't bad.

Skinner Butte Park


So to end our day, we decided to take a walk in another great park. The park is located on a hill, so you will have incredibly beautiful scenery. It's a very peaceful place.
