    Eugene often appears on lists of the most livable communities in the country. It enjoys the cultural amenities of a larger city - hosting concerts that span the musical spectrum, a world-famous Bach Festival, and many other festivals and celebrations - and the accessible real estate, lack of traffic, and relaxed lifestyle of a small city. Recreational possibilities abound, ranging from hiking or mountain-biking picturesque trails to playing nationally-ranked golf courses to running the same paths on which Olympic athletes train. Known as Tracktown USA, Eugene hosts the US Olympic Track & Field trials, as well as numerous other sporting events tied to the Pac-12 athletic conference. Eugene lies just 60 miles from ski resorts in the mountains to the east and 60 miles from the scenic Oregon coast to the west. In the heart of Oregon wine country, Eugene also enjoys a nationally-recognized food scene.
