The quiet neighborhood of Amazon is located just __ blocks south of the University of Oregon campus. Amazon is contained within 24th Street and 30thStreet and within the cross streets of Agate Street and Amazon Park. This area of Eugene is mainly residential, but contains several popular local places including Sundance Natural Foods, The Humble Beagle Pub, and Amazon Community Center, which is located in Amazon Park.
While we intended to explore the neighborhood on foot, the Eugene weather had other plans for us. Trying our best to stay dry, we drove around the borders and side streets, which allowed us to see parts of Eugene that we never knew existed. The closer we drove to 30th Avenue, the more elaborate the homes became. Each block had a different personality displayed through the Easter basket assortment of colored houses and creativity in landscaping.
Even though it is a quiet neighborhood, Amazon has character that can even be seen from a water-soaked car window. We saw it!
