We started the weekend with a quick trip to Starbucks for Pumpkin Spice Lattes of course, and then hit the road.
I have never been to Oregon before and the drive was gorgeous. So many trees, tons of farmland, and cute quaint towns.
We arrived in Eugene Friday night and headed downtown to grab a bite to eat. We ended up at The Davis, which is a chic restaurant with an extensive menu and great drinks. Seriously, everything on the menu looked amazing.
The gorgeous campus
My brother gave us a quick tour of campus on Saturday which was beautiful. It finally felt like fall. Colors changing on the trees, old brick buildings, and lots or families out walking their dogs!
The Willamette River that runs through Eugene
I headed back to The Bay on Sunday night via Amtrack. Traveling by train was so old-school and leading up to it I totally romanticized it. It wasn't terrible but it definitely wasn't glamorous. Reminds me of the Sex and the City episode where Carrie and Samantha take the "deluxe sleeper" train across the country! It was an experience, that's for sure!
